Susan Sarandon’s Crusade Against Child Sex Trafficking

Actress and mother-of-three Susan Sarandon is speaking out against child sex trafficking in a new campaign aimed at raising funds for victims. The Oscar-winner is long known for her work with UNICEF and other humanitarian organizations and spoke recently with about the horrors of this international problem.

The whole idea of sex trafficking with children is a nightmare you can’t even believe is real

Susan, who is mother to Jack, 20, Miles, 17, Eva, 25, points out that the child sex trade is not just happening overseas, but is a domestic problem as well. “Sex trafficking happens everywhere, she said. “People profit from it who are also connected to governments. It’s definitely exists within the United States…Kids coming from other countries. The problem exists right here.”

The statistics are sobering: By U.S. Justice Department estimates, anywhere from 14,500 to 17,500 foreign children are trafficked into the United States every year. But the number of U.S. children faced with being potentially trafficked is much higher – as many as 200,000 American children are at risk.

  • Sex Trafficking Must End

    I love hearing about celebrities who use their influence to raise awareness about an issue. I can only imagine how her role as a mother has made this issue even more important to her. There are so many young kids who get stuck in trafficking/exploitation situations – though sometimes it is not the classic case of kidnapping that is often portrayed. Way to go Sarandon, let’s keep fighting!

    Sex Trafficking/Slavery is used by many groups as a attempt to outlaw all prostitution around the world by saying that all women are victims even if they do it willing. This hurts any real victims because it labels all sex workers as victims.

    This is done by the media, aid groups, NGO’s, feminists, politicians, and religious organizations that receive funds from the government. There are very strong groups who promote that all adult women who have sex are victims even if they are willing, enjoy it and go out of there way to get it. These groups try to get the public to believe that no adult women in their right mind would ever go into the sex business unless she was forced to do so, weather she knew it or not. They say that 100% of all sex workers are trafficking victims. They do this in order to label all men as sex offenders and wipe out all consensual prostitution. Which is what their real goal is. There is almost no one who challenges or questions them about their false beliefs. Therefore, the only voices you hear are of these extreme groups. These groups want to label all men as terrible sex offenders for seeing a willing adult sex worker. No one stands up to say this is foolish, the passive public says nothing. These groups even say that all men who marry foreign women are terrible sex predators who take advange of these “helpless foreign women wives”.

    These groups believe that two adults having consensual sex in private should be outlawed. Since they believe that it is impossible for a man to have sex with a woman without abusing the woman in the process.

    This is an example of feminists and other groups exploiting the suffering of a small minority of vulnerable and abused women in order to further their own collective interests. For example, getting money from the government into their organizations. Rather than wanting to find the truth.
