Transcription: 
We can stop or minimize child prostitution by intervening an early childhood sexual abuse. If we can protect our children when they're little or if we can intervene appropriately and treat a child sexual abuse and not blame the victim. We could almost eliminate all of the children who are vulnerable to prostitution. People just don't go out and prostitute as a solution to a problem. It is a natural outgrowth of early childhood sexual abuse and sexual trauma. Prostitution is a one-upsmanship on sexual abuse. You're going to take this from me? So now I'm going to take control and I'm going to make you pay me for it, that's what prostitution is.
