Imagine a perfect world; now take this so called perfect world and think about the children in it. Think of a world where children and adults, are being trafficked and used for prostitution. How can this world be so cruel and ignorant to take children’s innocence? This world is not so perfect after all, is it? Human trafficking occurs daily, even in America. Human trafficking, when prostitution is involved, is when females are sold for profit to be used for sexual intercourse. Exploiting women for profit against their will creates human rights violations, physical and mental well-being, and being detained unwillingly.
Because of the Bill of Rights in America, losing rights becomes a serious issue. When human trafficking is involved, the person has no way to say no due to being forced against their will. The kidnapped sex slaves are brutally beat, raped, and starved in order to keep from putting up a fight (Random History). Finding ways to cease human trafficking, especially when it involves prostitution, will save the rights of women because they will be able to consent to fornication. According to Ruth Rosenberg:
Human trafficking involves by definition human beings. These are individuals that have been subject to exploitation and serious human rights violations. Whereas governments tend to be concerned about human trafficking primarily because of links between human trafficking and other forms of organized crime as well as fears of illegal immigration, trafficking is first of all a threat to the individuals – men, women and children – that are trafficked.

If the signs that human trafficking were occurring were known, then the risk of young, innocent women being kidnapped to be used as sex slaves against their will in inhumane conditions would be reduced (Bureau of Public Affairs). Enrolling children in programs dealing with UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund), children have better options of protection of their rights (UNICEF).
Since human trafficking almost always kidnaps its victims their well-being is affected. The women are not only physically abused, but mentally abused and beaten down to believe they are nothing. The women are also in dirty living conditions, and often contracting some sexually transmitted disease. According to the AHPA, “human papillomavirus, pelvic inflammatory disease, permanent damage to reproductive organs, and HIV/AIDS are often the result of forced prostitution” (AHPA). Women become suicidal and mentally unstable, some even experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder. In order to increase the well-being of women in America and foreign countries human trafficking must stop. However, in order to help victims of previous human trafficking incidents, women can be given the tools to become more independent. If women were more independent less cases of human trafficking would occur (Soroptimist).
Furthermore, human trafficking is wrong because it captures the victim’s freedom and they no longer...
