Thatcher 1 Marlina Thatcher Dr. Liana Andreasen English 1302 VF3 8 May 2019 The End of Human Trafficking In the nineteenth and twentieth century, the abomination of slavery seemed outdated, but history has a way of repeating itself. Human trafficking is now the modern day slavery and it is an issue throughout the world. “Around the world, millions of people, usually women and children are trapped in a modern form called human trafficking: 21st-century abolitionists are now needed to enact laws and take measures to set victims of trafficking free and stamp out a crime that shames us all.” (UN.GIFT xi). It has turned out to be the fastest growing criminal industry just behind drug trafficking. Immigrants, organs, and drug trafficking are all examples of human trafficking. Most victims of trafficking may never get away from vicious crimes and may end up dead or with diseases. In the articles by Taylor, Helen, Bauman, Stephan gives us great data on what numerous exploited people live through. First, many individuals are trafficked into what might be compared to slavery.

Human trafficking isn't just women and men, kids too. In the article by Taylor, Helen she tells a story about a young girl who was being sold to sex dealers consistently. She states "Men from all walks of life lined up to sexually abuse and consume her. Doctors, lawyers, fathers, priests, teachers, cops or other man who seemed trustworthy, were the ones purchasing these young girls night after night” ( Taylor, 2017) . I agree with Taylor when she mentioned " man who seemed trustworthy ." Nowadays, you can’t trust anyone regardless of whether it’s a minister, a judge, or in law enforcement, it does not imply that they won't hurt anyone.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
