Prostitution: What a Sad, Sad Business

Here’s an eye-opening report about prostitution and its devastating effects on the people caught up in the deadly business. Thankfully, there is one woman, Kathleen Mitchell, who understands their plight because she was a former prostitute, and started a ministry called DIGNITY to help them escape their sexual prison.

If you think you and your children are immune to the real threat of prostitution, think again. A few years ago in a Reston, Virginia middle school, one young 7th grader tried to start a prostitution ring. Thankfully this would-be pimp was caught before anyone was violated. 

On YouTube.com, there is an 11-part series by one ciphertv documenting girls in this and other countries from all socio-economic classes who prostitute themselves to buy items like expensive sweaters. (Link not suitable for children.)

While stories like these are nothing new, there is good news because God is in the redemption and restoration business. A few years ago, I wrote a piece about William Wilberforce documenting London's crime problem. The streets of the city were teeming with prostitutes, and about a quarter of them were no older than sixteen. Wilberforce and the Clapham group set out to right the wrong and started charities like Kathleen Mitchell's DIGNITY to give hope where there was no hope.

My son is adopted from an underage teen on the streets. (The father listed on the birth cert. is likely her pimp and not my son's bio father.)

WHERE ARE THE WOMENS' RIGHTS GROUPS OF THE 1960'S? WHY ARE THEY NOT also PROTESTING THIS MASSIVE ABUSE OF WOMEN, UNDERAGE GIRLS, (SOMETIMES BOYS)????

Whatever your views on Pres. Bush, he has repeatedly acted against worldwide prostitution. (See some UN speeches, etc.)

the media has mainly ignored this.
