Ritual Abuse / Extreme Abuse

Ritual Abuse / Extreme Abuse


"Every day around the world and even here in the United States, children are sold into virtual slavery or trafficked for the worst forms of sexual abuse."  
–– President, Bill Clinton - 2000


Ritual abuse is an extreme sadistic form of abuse of children and non-consenting adults. It is methodical, systematic sexual, physical, emotional and spiritual abuse, which often includes mind control, torture, and highly illegal and immoral activities such as murder, child pornography and prostitution. The abuse is justified by a religious or political ideology.
