Protect Your Children
Is Your Child Safe?
A recent study showed public schools are prime areas for sexual exploiters (such as pimps) to target girls.
Pimps will often brainwash their victims using young girls to recruit other fellow classmates.
Recruiters can be pimps, small-time gangs, and even family members.
In the city of San Diego alone, 20 out of 20 schools had recruiting take place on school grounds.
There is no set way into prostitution.
The average age for young girls to enter the sex trafficking industry is anywhere from 14 to 15 years of age.
But some are even younger. In the state of California, cases have surfaced revealing children who have been sexually exploited as early as six years old.
Groomed From A Young Age
Girls are introduced to sex at a very early age.
They are taught to sexualize and worship the female body. Most parents think nothing of it when they see Katy Perry and she is naked on a cloud, and this sexual message is everywhere.
Children can see all this from easy access on their cellphones.

"Prostitutes are at the highest risk of being killed by serial killers."
~San Diego District Attorney Summer Stephan~
In 1975, one of the most violent criminals of the 20th Century was arrested. He raped and murdered reportedly more than 100 women over the course of several years.
The day before his execution Ted Bundy gave a video interview. In the interview, Bundy went on record to say,
"I’ve met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence. Without exception, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography - deeply consumed by the addiction."
These statistics help paint a picture of slavery in the U.S. today:
