23-year-old Karla Jacinto has been recently rescued from sex trafficking. She was lured from her home in Mexico as a 12-year-old by a trafficker. She was forced to work in a brothel as a prostitute in the Mexican city of Guadalajara.
She tells CNN, “I started at 10am and finished at midnight. Some men would laugh at me because I was crying. I had to close my eyes so that that I wouldn’t see what they were doing to me, so that I wouldn’t feel anything. I thought they were disgusting. They knew we were minors. We were not even developed. We had sad faces. There were girls who were only 10 years old. There were girls who were crying. They told the officers they were minors and nobody paid attention.”
She even got pregnant and gave birth at the age of 15.
She has urged the US Congress to do more to stop the sex-trafficking. She says, “I was forced to serve every kind of fetish imaginable to more than 40,000 clients. There are between 20 million and 36 million slaves around the world in 2015, including 5.5 million children.”
Karla has shown immense amount of courage to come out and voice against the issue. We wish that she emerges stronger and victorious.
