it would have been nice to hear more from this woman, such an important and urgent topic. if proritizing was an option, i would have swapped the spots with the food lady, and not even a mention of child slavery in the blurb, i had to scroll down to find this.

I've been in ~35 countries in Asia, N. Africa, S. America, Europe. I've never seen heart-rending, gut wrenching poverty such as what I saw in Cambodia.

a couple of weeks ago in Detroit airport I met a wonderfull dedicated young couple from Wisconsin: Joseph Quinnell and Susan Perri who started The Thailand Project. http://www.thethailandproject.org They are traveling the world to raise awareness and funds to help the "stateless people" who escaped Burma to Thailand and are now stateless inThailand where they are "non-people" many of their children end up sold or stolen for work slavery or sex slavery.. The Thailand Project is helping them through supporting them in higher education.
check them out....

1) Yep, if I were a single woman, I'd ask to see a guy's passport because frankly sex tourism is more common than we care to admit. Pure evil, the worst kind of exploitation and the NJ/NYC are is huge for this as well.

2) I hate to say it because I know how it will flip people out, but if the church and conservative US policy didn't get in the way of international birth control in terms of policy and preaching (because they supposedly LOVE children), there wouldn't be so many unwanted, vulnerable children to exploit. What do they THINK happens to children born in to families and societies that can not provide for them?
