Recently, Texas law enforcement raided the ranch and removed over 400 children. Here is an interview with three women from FLDS who want their children back:

Oh, and here's that former FLDS member who recorded a statement in that video talking about her escape [YouTube]. It's pretty intense. The summary of her autobiography is worth a read, too.
