Stealing and Selling Babies

Today’s BBC reports on the raid of a human-trafficking “baby farm” in Nigeria, calling to light an ongoing problem not only in Nigeria but worldwide. Of all the many horrible things that go on in the world, this has to be one of the very worst. Thank God at least some of these children and mothers were rescued from a terrible fate. Still, according to UNICEF and other organizations that combat and study trafficking, hundreds of thousands of children each year are sold and forced into servitude of one kind or another. The United States is not immune from this modern-day slavery; more information about the problem and what can be done to help is available at the Health and Human Services website.
