Forced Prostitution and the World Cup

Reports continue to pour in about the oppressive treatment of Eastern European women, who are lured from their homes with a promise of a better life, only to be forced to participate in sex trade in a foreign country. Apparently, this “industry” of forced prostitution is only growing as a result of the presence of the World Cup in Germany.

These are some of the saddest stories I have ever heard. It is sad enough when an adult feels compelled to chose this sort-of life, because her other options are too dismal. It is beyond tragic when a teenage girl, is basically kidnapped, beaten, and forced to have sexual relations with complete strangers, with no hope of a better life.

Lord, come quickly.
