Many say prostitution is the oldest profession in the world and believe the private affairs of consenting adults should not be infringed upon.  Those same people are quick to claim that prostitution does not harm anyone.  Perhaps you are one of those people. If that’s the case, I’d like to suggest to you ten things that you might not know about a women being sold for sex.  Statistically speaking:
  1. She was just 13 years old when she entered into the sex trade.
  2. She is a victim of incest. (65% to 90%)
  3. She is the most raped demographic on the planet. (80%)
  4. She will die within 7 years after entering into prostitution.
  5. She has a trafficker selling her as a commodity and keeping all or most of the money. (70%-90%)
  6. She is or has been homeless. (72%)
  7. At some point she has considered suicide. (75%)
  8. She is 40 times more likely to die than the national average.
  9. She is two times more likely than a solider in a war zone to have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. (68%)
  10. She is classified by the US Center for Disease Control as having the highest HIV prevalence in the United States.
