Where Are Women Used for Breeding Purposes?

Incidents of women used for breeding purposes in history include breeding slaves for profit and labor in the United States and the Lebensborn breeding program in Nazi Germany between 1935 and 1945, but illegal baby-breeding farms currently exist, such as the one shut down in Thailand in 2011, as reported by the Huffington Post. Many instances of women being used for breeding purposes are perpetuated by profit or to expand the numbers in a race, religion, cult or slave ring.

There are laws in the U.S. to protect victims of human trafficking used for sex, slavery and involuntary servitude, which may include breeding farms and sex trade operations, as defined by The Department of Homeland Security.
