When our friends at Prostitution Research and Education took on Craigslist a year ago for aiding and abetting the trafficking of women and children in the sex industry, we wholeheartedly endorsed their efforts. Now that they are taking on Village Voice Media -- owners of the Seattle Weekly, San Francisco Weekly and LA Weekly -- for profiting from the same crime against humanity, we once again applaud their efforts at abolishing this modern form of slavery.
Reading Village Voice Media's lame responses, which range from everybody else is doing it
to we only support trafficking of women 18 and older
, we are left wondering where they got their PR people--let alone their moral values.
