Its a start

23 03 2011

A new bill has been proposed in Congress called Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Deterrence and Victims Support Act of 2011. Hew that is a really long name.

This bill proposes that the government finally starts getting involved in the sex trafficking of young children. If passed, it will open up 6 houses across the US that will house these victims by providing for their physical and emotional needs. AND it will designate money to hire investigators who are solely dedicated to locking up the abusers.(learn more about the bill here)

bam.

I love it! The US seems to finally  be doing something about this issue. We are finally taking action and acknowledging that this problem has to be dealt with. We are not only giving victims a place to live but we are also helping them work through their traumatic experiences with counseling and other things.  (I really hope St. Louis gets one of these nifty homes)

By choosing to acknowledge this crime we are in the steps of recovery.

There is some type of hope.

It is only 6 houses but 6 more then we already had! Who knows what will happen next. It brings hope to the victims who are currently in the trade. They now have more of an opportunity to be rescued and recieve the care that is much needed.

I can only hope that this bill will pass congress.
