Thank you for your great work on behalf of children. --US Senator Richard Blumenthal
How can we possibly thank you enough for your constant support during our recent investigation into Prostitution and Human Trafficking. Your suggestions and assumption of responsibility for the well being of one of our victims/witnesses is critical to our investigation. One of the most amazing things is that you said you would do specific things to care for the victim and then did them; a rare commodity. --Lucein St Germain, Commanding Officer, Connecticut Statewide Organized Crime Investigative Task Force
Raymond Bechard has written a great book; an important book. There is a horrific human rights abuse taking place right in front of us. UNSPEAKABLE finally brings child trafficking out of the shadows and into the light of day, exposing this crime for all of us to see. --Carol Smolenski, Executive Director, ECPAT, End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking
From the Publisher
This has never been done before. For the first time Raymond Bechard presents a disturbing report from the frontlines of the war against child trafficking. Compel Publishing is proud to present this important book. However, the reader must be cautioned. This is not a glimpse into the dark underworld of those who enslave our children, it is a long, hard look at it. With clarity of purpose and magnificent research Mr. Bechard offers us a choice: will we stand idly by while this crime continues or will we join the fight?

AG Says Orphan Rescuer Misused Cash
AG claims Ahava Kids founder misused $100,000
By LeAnne Gendreau and Tom Monahan - The attorney general claims a charity founder was spending money meant to help orphans and prostitutes. Raymond Bechard’s mission seemed noble. The charity he founded claimed to serve vulnerable people -- victims of human trafficking and orphaned children with AIDS. But Attorney General Richard Blumenthal claims much of the money never went to help anyone other than Bechard himself. Based on information Blumenthal said came from a whistleblower who was hired to work on Bechard's Web site, he has filed a lawsuit against Bechard, accusing him of pilfering up to $100,000 of $250,000 raised through Ahava Kids, Inc., an organization Bechard started in 2004 that was supposed to be a non-profit. The Ahava Kids Web site shows sad children’s eyes and claims “your love is their last, best hope.” The plea for money says donations would help rescue victims in the United States and throughout the world. Funds were also meant to go toward operating a hotline and safe houses, including one in Connecticut and one in Georgia, as well as to help prostitutes and to distribute AIDS medication to orphaned children in third-world countries. However, Blumenthal said, Bechard spent it on himself and at restaurants and stores. Then there are the questionable expenses on gasoline, the ATM withdrawals and the $67,000 the charity loaned to companies Bechard owned, the suit claims. "Claiming to help human trafficking victims and orphaned AIDS children, Raymond Bechard allegedly did more to help himself,” Blumenthal said. “Through Ahava Kids, he promises protection from human trafficking victims, opportunities for prostitutes seeking escape, and relief for orphans.”
Nevertheless, his message is important and it does provide enough detail to educate the novice reader/researcher information about this horrendous crime in this era of globalization. Recommended.
