"Sexual abuse is a growing problem around the world and it has devastating consequences for the victimized child.

Compounding the abuse, most children who are being commercially sexually exploited are also often sexually abused at home. Trafficking in children has grown with the increased globalization. UNICEF estimates that between 900,000 and 1.2 million children are trafficked each year. In the US, there is an estimated 200,000-300,000 children trafficked for sexual purposes annually.

Child pornography on the Internet is another growing problem. Pedophiles document sexual abuse of children and use the material to sell or exchange on the Internet. In addition to the abuse these children suffer, images of the abuse circulate worldwide across the Internet for many years, repeating the abuse." www.childhood-usa.org

Help prevent the distribution of child pornography over popular social networks. Demand the networks to take responsibility and prevent users from posting and distributing child pornography across its network.
