Sex trafficking: Lifelong struggle of exploited children

BBC 30 July 2015
trafficking – торговля запрещённым товаром
(оружием, наркотиками, а также людьми)
It is a world few Americans know about. But tens of thousands of American children are thought to be sexually exploited every year.

[READ MORE!]It's believed that every night hundreds are sold for sex.
The FBI says child sex abuse is almost at an epidemic level.
Last year the agency managed to rescue (= save) 600 children.

People are trafficked into America from Mexico, Central and South America. But the majority of children bought and sold for sex every night in the United States are American kids.

How has it come tho this?
Kids are neglected, abused, exploited and often ignored starting from a young age.
to neglect не заботиться
to abuse [əˈbjuːz] – жестоко обращаться; надругаться
One woman says she was bought by her aunt at the age of 14.
"She gave my mom $900. Told me I was going shopping at the mall."
The aunt would bring her to drug dealers' houses, where she was raped and given drugs. The woman said:
"She (the aunt) would leave me...and then she would say:  -You wanted to stay."
The young woman soon believed the abuse was her fault and her choice.

abuse [ əˈbjuːs] (им. сущ.) –
жестокое обращение, издевательство

Another woman was 14 when she was kidnapped by "a guy I thought I liked".
She didn't return home for two years.
