1 hour: 10 min Sweden – has a progressive form of legislation to erradicate sex trafficking – Kajsa Wahlberg – aimed at stopping prostitution because they understand it to be a form of violence against women – they arrest men for buying sex – jail time
It’s a human right not to be in prostitution – not to exploit, buy & sell people for sexual exploitation.
Women in Sweden in prostitution are not arrested. They are offered services for escape, pimps & traffickers are arrested. Sweden protects the sanctity of human life.
Sweden has the lowest rate of trafficking in the European Union.

“If to be feeling alive to the suffering of my fellow creatures is to be a fanatic, then I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large.”
Wilberforce’s 3 most effective ways to combat slavery:
1. Prayer – slavery is a spiritual battle
2. Awareness – tell others about this injustice
3. Money – support for organizations working in the field
