Human trafficking

Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim's rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another.

It is so angering to know how there's some people in the world who would think it's ok to force women (and I'm sure men too) into slavery. So much for slavery being stopped by the 13th amendment. People are not something you can own. Whatever happened to "all are created equal"?

This is so shocking and horrible to realize this is happening NOW. It's hard to believe at this very second, there's all these poor girls out there being abused, tortured, and raped. When will something be done to change this??

To help their cause spread the word on the globalization of human trafficking to help these organizations began to end it.

Child sex trade. Hope watching these videos can move us to do something such as donate, or volunteer or even work to help people out of these horrible jobs.

This is a heart wrenching documentary about sex trafficking in Cambodia. Human slavery at its worst.

Not For Sale is an organization hoping to "re-abolish" slavery and human trafficking. These are ethical products for sale, and the funds help end human trafficking. Definitely worth a visit to the website.
