It started in England and it spread.

Against their constitutional right
We need to put an end to human trafficking Human trafficking in my opinion can be stopped. We already have many laws that have been issued to stop it. We have many non government organizations to build awareness. If the enforcements gets a little tighter and all countries are on board I think we could be on the right path.

Start Freedom, a global project run in conjunction with the UN that aims to engage and raise awareness among young people

Some of them are desperate
Tighter border control cannot always happen
It takes a long time to find the men who run human trafficking
Fearful to be charged with prostitution
Too big of an issue Democratic Countries because they know that humans are born with those rights and that the rights should be demonstrated everywhere
First World Countries because they may have the power to do something about this issue Not out citizens to worry about
