Philadelphia News Agencies: Change Terminology and Bring Awareness to Lack of Human Trafficking Laws.

Underage victims of human trafficking are being arrested and stigmatized because Pennsylvania still has no law that makes child sex slavery a crime, or that prohibits the sale or promotion of travel for the purpose of purchasing sex with a child, otherwise known as child sex tourism. We ask responsible news agencies to change their terminology from "prostitute", to "human trafficking victim" and to bring attention to the fact that Pennsylvania needs to amend the prostitution law so minors can not be charged with the crime of prostitution, which stigmatizes them and directs them in a path of criminal justice instead of victim services.
