The Rape Of Bosnia

March 07, 1993

The girls who gave their testimonials are all under 18. These are children who are being raped and tortured. This is child abuse in its most hideous form.

Why the grown men who lead these "soldiers" don't put a stop to this is beyond comprehension. It is impossible for me as a mother and as a woman to understand how a grown man could subject a young girl to this kind of humiliation and torture and have no ability to empathize or feel her pain.

It is time for the United States to step in and take action. Are we going to sit by and watch another tragedy on the scope of Adolf Hitler's attempted annihilation of the Jews? Let's go. Let's do something--please!
