While there are some that make the career choice willingly, many of them have been found to be victims of human trafficking. This becomes an ethical conflict as the justice systems end up prosecuting and punishing the very people they were meant to protect. Should the girl even managed to overcome the trauma of being a sex slave and survive the justice system, they now have a criminal record for sex work related offenses when they try to reintegrate back into society. They are often prevented from getting decent jobs and other prospects of rebuilding their lives after. Therefore, even if they are able to escape from the horrors of the sex trade, a record of their “criminal” activity victimizes them for the rest of their lives (Flora and Keohane,
Traffickers often target women and children who are poor and unemployed. They are exploited sexually and made to do manual labor. Many countries have made laws and initiatives over the last century to help combat this awful act. Some say these initiatives are not working, but they actually are. Initiatives against human trafficking are proving effective because trained citizens know how to identify a trafficker or victim and traffickers can’t hide from the law as easily.
Olivia G. Nifong Mrs. Gallos English 3 honors 25 March 2018 Sexual Human Trafficking Although it is illegal in the US, people are still trafficking others, and the rate of trafficking continues to rise. Sexual trafficking is a huge problem that needs to be stopped immediately and the statistics show that trafficking is going up more and more every single year. sexual trafficking is a trade of people from one country to another. It is usually done to sexually exploit someone and is usually illegal and without the victims consent. Sexual trafficking abuses our God-given human rights.
Sexual addiction can have serious consequences whether it is out of reach from legal action or behind bars. The most common out of legal means is having affairs or casual sex. The most common illegal means is prostitution, viewing child pornography on the internet, sex with minors, and more. For someone, that is, a sex addict, availability to material or the lack of caring to be caught can send an addict to desperate measures. The known death of a young boy changed the nation and started a wave to protect that entire are in site sex offenders.
Joint enterprise is growing problem in our modern society were teenagers are sentenced because they were present when the offender delivered the fatal blow. There have been arguments for and against joint enterprise and whether the law should stay or be abolished this is because too many young people are being condemned for just witnessing attacks or observing illegal activities. I do believe those who took part deserve to be punished too, just not as rigorously. Personally I believe that the offender who commits the crime should therefore be held accountable and should be punished for it. This leaves us wondering: are the wrong people going to jail?
16 million or 64% exploited for labor. This is a social injustice issue and threat to humanity as it has an impact on communities all around the world. As discouraging as this may to know that an industry selling and using humans for profit has been on a consistent rise, the compassionate and just side of humanity has also stepped up to try and protect and liberate victims of human trafficking. There Vare state, national and international policies in place to secure and enforce the human rights every human being is entitled to. The policies in place are aimed at protecting the individuals most vulnerable to becoming victims of human trafficking and assist them as they escape or are rescued from the industry.
The other 18% accounts for forced labor cases, where the workers are not paid and are often working in harsh or inhumane conditions. These statistics are only the start, as many cases go undetected or unreported due to fear or the inability to recognize what trafficking situations look like. In a breakdown of the numbers , 27% of victims worldwide are children, and over 50% are women. Men make up almost half of all traffickers, balancing the role played equally between both genders. Contrary to popular belief, 46% knew their captors, and kidnapping is rarely the case.
Many women from third world countries are lured into this trade with the bait of false marriages or false jobs. Many of the victims are forced with violence or indirectly with psychological blackmail into the sex trade. Human trafficking is the worst form of abuse that can be inflicted on an individual. A trafficked human being suffers from mental, and physical abuse, leaving them with lifelong mental illnesses. Many women dream of a better life and are willing to travel across the globe to better their lives.
With my project, “Community Coalitions for Awareness to End Human Trafficking” (or CCAEHT for short), I want to shed light on human trafficking, a trans-national crime which victimized over twenty million people in 2012 (ILO). As someone who believes that news coverage and social media can make a difference, I find it appalling that so many innocent lives have been ruined, yet this pressing matter receives little public attention. The organ trade, sex slavery, and child prostitution are things people just don’t want to think about. Certainly, it is disturbing
