CNN: "Children for Sale", documentary on the sex trade in the US hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith

On Tuesday, July 21, 2015, CNN presented the one-hour special documentary “Children for Sale: The Fight to End Human Trafficking”, hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith , at 9 PM EDT and then midnight,  with link here.

The documentary is part of the CNN Freedom Project.

The documentary focuses on Atlanta. It views the practice as modern day slavery.

The film defines “trafficking” as the manufacturing of children for the sex trade.  That is a degree above “prostitution”.

And in the US offering anyone under 18 is always against federal law, and is similar legally to possessing or distributing child pornography.

The documentary presented a shelter, “Living Waters for Girls”.

Young women are often targeted after being noticed by pimps dancing for clubs.  And some men fly into the city, rent rooms near the airport and use them only for a few hours.
