I'm sure we all have said that we wanted to sell our kids but never would.  I know I wouldn't.

I don't understand the question...

what if my child was acting in a commercial? That child was sold...she sold her image for a paycheck.

What if it was my kid sold into slavery? Seriously doubt that will happen here and those countries that allow child labor need go get their S#!t together.

I read a book about sex slavery for one of my psych classes. Heartbreaking stuff.

Sad, but true. :( I don't understand how people who subject kids to that can live with themselves. :(

Some parents send their kids out not knowing what is going to happen to them. They do it because they can't afford to feed their children, and they think that their kids are going to some kind of a home for kids where they will be taken care of. There is a lot of ignorance involved. I don't think that parents would directly make the decision to sell their kids into it, but the people who are running the black market sure do know what THEY are doing! I hope they rot in hell.

Also very true, and I agree with you.
