Terrifying Campaign Against Sex Trafficking Compares Women To Cattle

In this brief commercial, a young woman is tossed around a dark dystopian room, crying while being herded around like a prize sow at a cattle call. I think most people know that sex trafficking is bad, so I guess I would have liked a little more substance to the ad: how do you identify traffickers? How do you help? Where do you give money? If the ad's purpose was to raise awareness about sex trafficking, then it was successful in that way, but I guess I wanted a little more info to go along with the potent imagery.
