Recently the reality of child sex trafficking and the exploitation of children in child sexual abuse material (child pornogrhapy) has slapped many of us in the face. I didn’t have any idea of the depth and reach of the evil of this industry and incase you didn’t either, here are the numbers provided by the Child Rescue Coalition:
The most shared child abuse file is currently being seen on over 2.5 million unique IP addresses.
Predators typically have between 50 and 150 victims over the course of their lifetimes.
Since inception, CRC has identified 71 million unique IP addresses worldwide sharing and downloading sexually explicit images and videos of children.
Children are most vulnerable to child sexual abuse between the ages of 7 and 13.
As many as 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys will experience some form of sexual abuse before age 18.
90% of children who suffered sexual abuse were violated by someone known to the family.
Child sexual abuse is a broad term, but the disturbing reality is that this is happening to infants, so young they still have their umbilical chords, all the way to teenagers. Their abuse is horrific, from molestation to rape, to sodimization , to bestiality, the evil knows no bounds .
This disturbs me to the deepest depths of my soul and breaks my heart. I know these things are hard to hear, but I believe we have to allow ourselves to be completely broken and disturbed by the reality of what happens to these children, as often as we are tempted to be complacent in our effort to rescue them.
We have to do something.
Luckily , CRC is doing something.
“Using our tool, police have rescued more than 2,500 children from sexual exploitation and abuse.
Our technology has led to the arrests of more than 12,000 dangerous predators across the globe.
96 Countries Worldwide
To date, our technology has prevented the abuse of more than 600,000 children.”
Maybe your heart is breaking , you want to help save these children but you don’t know where to start. Consider starting here, donate to this cause so they can continue rescuing these babies from the hell they are living in. I believe the community in Highlands County and surrounding areas (and however far this goes) will show up to care for the most vulnerable among us in their greatest need.
I beg of you to consider, if this was you, if this was your child, wouldn’t you want someone to rescue you, to rescue them?
If you aren‘t able to donate, please share, get loud and help people who don’t know see how they can help. And whatever the case , please pray for these children to be rescued, and for these evil predators to be brought to justice quickly.
