Pregnantly pregnant, a woman is on the verge of giving birth.
That’s because she is being prostituted in Africa.
In a new book, author Amy J. Rolston describes how she tracked down a man who had trafficked a woman to Kenya, where she was forced to have sex and was then forced to sell her body for sex.
Roles in the story include prostitution, forced childbirth, and child trafficking.
ROLSTON: The trafficker who I interviewed, he’s been in Kenya for 30 years.
He told me, “You know, you’re pregnant.
Why don’t you sell your body for my services?”
He said, “Well, it’s a woman’s body.
I don’t want to lose it.”
So he’s willing to pay a $1,000 fee, he said, and he’s a doctor.
He’s willing, I think, to sell his baby for a couple of years, and then he would sell her for sex after she’s born.
The trafficked woman was raped, she had to have her baby taken from her and given to him, he was selling her to earn a little bit more money.
And then he gave her her name.
Rolsons book, “The Body of a Woman,” is being published by Regnery Books, which is owned by Amherst Books.
She has been an investigative journalist and is a senior editor for “The Nation,” a news magazine.
The article was written by the Investigative Unit at NBC News.
