    looks like the slavery of the 21st century is rejuvinating one of the most wonderful callings in history: abolitionist.

    notice how abortion rights and anti-abortion forces are working together. how inspiring that they can move beyond rhetoric and unite to save lives and free slaves (traffick victims).

    i am ashamed to say that here in japan, many American and Japanese servicemen contribute to this shameful practice by paying for sex with trafficked girls from the Phillipines, Burma, Columbia, Vietnam and Cambodia.

    NATO, I agree - trafficking of women (and children) for the sex trade is just as much of a violation of human rights as trafficking of people because of race.

    indeed gop_jeff!



    reading more and more about the latest efforts, i am just continually inspired to see people who normally disagree over so much work over the long term on a common concern.

    How many times do we have to face evil like this before we can vanquish it forever?

    How many times to generations have to rise up against slavery?

    How many times do generations have to rise up against infanticide in all its forms?

    How many times do generations have to face the evils of genocide and utter annihilation before humans get it through their head not to be evil.

    I am disheartened as you are perhaps that this is still happening (along with other horrors like genocide), but I try to remember that whenever evil shows its face, good does as well. For every slave owner, there is an abolitionist, for every mass murderer, a human rights worker, a brave doctor, a concerned leader.

    I wonder if the NAACP would support paying reparitions to every decent of a woman; incase one of her ancestors were forced into slavery?
