Aren’t the girls choosing their lifestyle?

A:

We believe that the vast majority of those who end up being trafficked have had their sense of self-worth damaged early on, often by sexual abuse. Abusive relationships, drug addiction, poverty, and manipulation can all put women in a position that makes prostitution feel like the only option. We are seeing an alarming increase in cases of human trafficking, and they don’t necessarily begin with runaways or forcible kidnapping.
