Twenty-seven million people worldwide are the victims of modern-day slavery: They are forced into sex or back-breaking labor against their will. Most of the victims lured into this criminal world are innocent children -- maybe even your own. Last year, slave traders made more money than the profits of Google, Nike and Starbucks combined. A new documentary, Call + Response, features a few of  Hollywood's leading actresses who feel passionate about this injustice. United Nations Goodwill Ambassador and featured actress in the documentary, Julia Ormond, joins Dr. Phil to share her firsthand experience of witnessing human trafficking and what she -- and you -- can do to put an end to it. These atrocities are not only happening in other parts of the world. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, more than 17,000 people are trafficked into the United States every year. The filmmaker behind Call + Response, Justin Dillon, goes undercover in San Francisco and discusses what he witnessed. Could it be happening in your home town? You might be surprised by what’s uncovered?. Then, police in Texas recently found a 16-year-old girl who was allegedly smuggled into the state with the promise of love, only to be locked in a house and forced to sell herself at least five nights a week. Hear from an FBI agent who sheds light on the case.  And, Tyamba was a straight-A student who ran away from home at 13 and was lured into a teenage prostitution ring. Find out how she broke free and what her life is like today. Plus, hear from women who were forced to be sex slaves in a sex ring, and meet two women fighting to help get child prostitutes off the street. Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

Let's put a stop to this! This is so sickening!

This is so sick!  Why isn't law enforcement doing anything about this? The people that are the buyers should be punished as well.  The pimps and the people paying money for sex should be hung in a public place.  That would make the future ones think twice as they watch the others get what they deserve.  Even if they didn't get paid, there needs to be a stop to this sex slavery business.  It sickens me to hear that this stuff is still going on!!!  I almost ran away as a child, boy am I thankful I didn't!!!   I am going to call my Congressman to get this bill to pass.  I am chocked that we the people have to call our Congressman, woman to have such a bill passed.  What are the people we vote for in Congress doing that they are letting such horrors go on and on!  We spend so much money on wars and this just shows how messed up our priorities are!!!  Thank you Dr. Phil.  Bless you.

houston spas

It is unbelievable how many SPAS there are in Houston. These are places where women are selling sex. i can't understand why these places are allowed to remain open. These places are in all kinds of strip malls around the city. There has been a couple of busts but then those places reopened under different names. How can we get rid of these?

The slime are everywhere

I agree with the guests that say that these are our husbands&fathers&sons. Although, like ALL moms I would prefer to think that these will never be MY sons. Without the cover-up and the sinister underground of men molesting young girls, there wouldn't be a problem. The thing that NEVER seems to get across to the men is that this IS a big deal. When a girl is being molested by a man, it is like taking a bath in a vat full of maggots. THats how bad it makes you feel inside. These girls are TRAINED to cover up their disgust and get through it. So, for any of these slime balls who think this is a victimless crime or that their victims secretly like it, pull your head out of your butt crack. Where I live, there are cases where these drugged out losers who happen to be native, put their 12 year old daughters out on the street to make money. There are plenty of men in my community who have no problem taking turns. They see these kids as less than equal and don't see the 'big deal'. I would LOVE to see these men get what they deserve. I am very angry about this...

the pimp

I just heard the pimp talk and heard how defensively he spoke and then he said he asked that they forgive him. if he was truly sorry for his behavior then he would have a totally different tone. i hope these women can move forward and not continue to give up their personal power to this man. Thank you Dr Phil for doing this show. I just wish more were happening to change all of this. I will be going to see this documentary when it comes out.

From Toronto, huh?

Quote From: allyyyyys

Dr. Phil, I am deeply concerned about this growing problem. The city where I live (in Canada) is the place where police effected a wonderful and fabulously successful sting against pederasts operating 2,000 away over the internet. The existence of the internet---tho' indescribably essential now for use in business and every kind of research, is a travesty in terms of the ability it provides pederasts contact of children.
I am at home all day--retired. Last week, in the middle of the day, I tuned into a television station I had never watched before. It was Station 31 (in Canada) called SHOW. The program had just begun--& I feel I must tell you what I saw. It was a police track the criminal' sort of show: the police were engaged in trying to find a 9 year old girl who had been lured away from her home by an on-line pederast. The police learned the criminals username--it was SpankDaddy'. In plotting their strategy for trapping this person it was decided that what was needed was (novel twist in such a story!)--a mature, sophisticated WOMAN: a person who would not pretend to BE a child, but would openly admit (to the pederast) that she was bored with her husband...he "didn't do it" for her any more... She asked --slowly and sensuously to be introduced to a child. The camera moved slowly in to focus on her eyes as she spoke. "I want to make love to a child", she said. A chill went down my spine. THIS is what television has come down to. Dr. Phil--the woman was acting the PART of a police woman--tracking a criminal. BUT, within the role, she was acting another role--that of a woman WANTING a child. BUT OVERLAPPING THIS, the actress was (to my mind) doing something else entirely: it seemed to me that she was well past the mere job of acting a part. THE SHOW ITSELF was deliberately tittilating: it was selling the very porn it purported to condemn' (if one can make that accusation of a show at all!) It was devious beyond belief. As the camera went closer on the eyes of the actress--her eyes became almost smokey' with desire. Her face was filled with such a level of lust no-one could possibly accept what she was doing as mere acting. She FELT what she was saying as she murmured "...yes--a girl--about 9 or 10. I want to experience it. Ive thought about it for a long time...take me to a dark place. A very dark pace. I long to feel the body of a child--to make her come..." It went on and on. Well, the meeting was arranged. The price was fixed. The place was agreed upon. The man was caught and the child was found'--by the woman police officer' who took the child in her arms, saying ""It's all right now--don't be scared--I've got you"--he ace suffused with passion I was unable to believe was acting. Dr. Phil, the show itself was presented in the manner of a successful sting', but the show itself had a dual purpose: it served to tittilate, to disturb, to engage the viewer in the same way adult porn is intended to. And it accomplished all this while being presented as afternoon entertainment'.
It has to stop, Dr.Phil. The more such shows' are allowed to be viewed, the more they will be regarded as...nothing shocking--just the usual thing', until pederasty itself becomes normalized' in the minds of the public. I could not get the thought out of my mind --the wondering--what kind of feeelings such a show would be stirred up in the mind of a lonely, unemployed male--sitting at home, alone--watching this kind of entertainment'. Only a year or so ago a man ran out of his home in Toronto--grabbed the first young woman he saw, pulled her into his home and raped and murdered her. He later admitted to the police that he had been watching the kind of show' I have just described every day for weeks. He said he was "unable to control the pressure such shows created". Dr. Phil, the problem of illicit sex with children is now a world-wide problem. Please will you work to bring attention to the role televised porn plays in this growing problem.

Go figure! You can get your point across without the graphic sexual innuendo! Are you promoting or protesting?

How can this happen!!!!!!!!!!

What can we do to help these poor children. I feel so helpless seeing this on TV and I just want to reach out and take these children away from there! How can we motivate the governments and the police to make this trafficking illegal and have these sickos severely punished for taking part in this unimaginable crime. There should be hired trained people working for these children as their full time jobs. We make war and spend billions on dollar on all kinds of things and what are we doing for innocents children?

10/10 Child Sex Slaves

Why is everyone so shocked? Have you lived your life with your head in the clouds or under a rock? Men have exploited women and children  since the beginning of time. Women have turned a blind eye to the suffering of whores. How often have you called another woman a whore? How often have you let a man you're with call a woman a whore? When you call a woman a whore you take away her humanity and turn her into an object. This is the climate we have created regarding sex. When do we start to question the so-called leaders of our nations? When do we stop the senseless suffering?  How long do we let women and children be bought, sold, and rapped on a daily basis for money? It isn’t going to end any time soon because the men in power don’t care, and they never have.

Child Sex Slaves

Dr Phil.

Thank you so very much for doing this show!

After raising nine birth children we started a journey of adoption. We learned of the plight of the orphans in orphanages in Russia we knew we had to do something to help these kids. We started adopting older kids who would be aging out of the orphanages soon. We also concentrated on older kids with siblings, in all we have adopted 12 kids and were in the process of adopting a 16 year old girl from a disrupted Russian adoption when my husband of 43 years passed away suddenly from a heart attack. So I am left to raise nine of these kids and finish the adoption of our 16 year old alone.

I must say that every bit of time and money involved in our endeavor has been worth it they have all turned out wonderfully least so far. LOL my two youngest are 12 they range in ages from 12 to 22.

Thank you, Dr. Phil

Thank you so much Dr. Phil for doing this show. I have a 7 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. I let them sit and watch your show with me today. I know that a lot of people are going to think I;m crazy for that, but I think kids need to be aware of this problem as much as adults do. Our children need to be informed of the things that are going on these days. They were both full of questions about the things they heard about what these children from your show are forced to do, It gave us all a chance to talk about the things they need to look for. There are so many dangers out there that we as parents have to protect them from. What better way to protect them than to let them watch and see the things that happen. Thank you again for letting me and my children watch this together and see these horrible things first hand.

I completely agree with you. He was in no way remorseful over what he has done to these women. He still can't be completely honnest even with himself over the things he has done. This man should never be allowed back on the streets.
