Quotes

"The trafficking network is used primarily by couples who are unable to have children" a source close to the case told AFP earlier this year
Sometimes, the stories of our past could be quite interesting. Such is the story of Chief ` "Ehiozuwa  John Agbonayinma, whose parents were poor farmers in a village located somewhere in Edo State."
"Many people think that slavery is a thing of the past," said a note from the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. "In fact, this social plague remains all too real in today's world. Last year's Message for 1 January 2014 was dedicated to brotherhood … Slavery deals a murderous blow to this fundamental fraternity, and so to peace as well. Peace can only exist when each human being recognizes every other person as a brother or sister with the same dignity."
