 Hello @sweetheatmn,

 by default `wp_insert_post()` doesn't add slashes to the post data because
 it '''expects''' the data already to be slashed. Before the data gets
 stored into the database `wp_unslash()` is called. That's why the slash
 from your input is removed.
 To solve this you have to call `wp_slash()` on your data first.
