In a new book, a victim of sex trafficking recounted the horrors of the abuse against herself and the seven unborn children who she was forced to abort.
Caitlin Spencer, a pseudonym, wrote in her book, “Please, Let Me Go,” how an Asian sex gang first began abusing her when she was 14 years old in the United Kingdom, the International Business Times reports.
She said it began when she called about an advertisement for young models. Spencer said a man came to her home when her parents were not home, claiming he was there to take photos, and then violently raped her.
Spencer said the man threatened her, so when he called again, she gave in to his demands. Soon, she said she was being trafficked; first once or twice a day and later more often. Sometimes, she said men lined up to pay to have sex with her, and other times she was raped by groups of men. She said she was raped thousands of times.
“I was told I would be killed if I told anyone, that they would set the house on fire,” she said.
She said she wrote everything in her diary, and her mother found it one day. Her mother immediately called the police, but Spencer said the police were not helpful; instead, they accused her of being a prostitute.
The police officer “seemed angry with me, asking me very intimate and upsetting questions,” she remembered. “When I asked him to stop, he said I had to get used to it as this is what I would have to deal with in court. He told me that if I were to testify, I would get no protection.
“For that reason, I never took it further. The police told my mother that I was a known prostitute and to leave me to it, that I’d stop when I was ready.”
She was not the only victim. Spencer said she was forced to abort seven unborn babies during her years of abuse. She also miscarried several babies, and gave birth to two living daughters.
Recently, she said she was able to work with authorities to crack down on sex traffickers in the UK.

Here’s more from the report:
The grooming gangs, largely run by Asian men, have been operating in several British towns. Last month, several members of the 18-strong Newcastle gang were convicted of raping white teenage girls, some as young as 13. The accused were mostly from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Iraq, Iranian and Turkey.
Talking about the Newcastle case, Caitlin said this is just the tip of the iceberg and the network of these sex gangs is extremely vast. She revealed these sexual predators walk freely in her local area.
Spencer is not alone. Numerous sex trafficking victims have said they endured horrific abuses, including being forced to abort their unborn babies.
A survey by the U.S. Department of State found that 55 percent of sex trafficking victims had at least one abortion, with 30 percent having multiple abortions. More than half said they did not choose to abort their unborn child; their traffickers ordered them to, according to the survey.
Many sexual abuse victims who become pregnant say the abortion only added to their trauma, according to research by the Elliot Institute.
In 2015, a sexual abuse victim told a British court that her abuser forced her to abort her unborn child. While the woman admitted that she had no desire to be a mother, she said she would not have aborted her baby – “because I didn’t want to go through all that.”
