we saw a lot of this when we were in Thailand - poor families who would sell a daughter - some as young as 10 - so that the rest of the family could have a better life. (what i later started to feel had been done to me.) they often sent them off to the city from a rural area - often pretended they did not know what kind of "work" the child was going to do.
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
