Good Essays
There are various forms of slavery, whether people choose to believe it or not. Nearly 100 years ago, African-Americans were targeted and in 1926, former U.S President Abraham Lincoln banned slavery. Giving the idea that every man and woman is free. Now nearly 100 years later we’re in the same boat, again. With a new form of slavery, human trafficking. These two articles are trying to solve the ongoing issues of human trafficking and how to stop the epidemic. Biswas creates a better understanding of human trafficking in her article, “Human Trafficking Scenario in Bangladesh: Some Concerns”.

A significant number of women and children are displaced from their homes and trafficked to various parts of the country. But though there is internal trafficking, majority of the trafficking in Bangladesh is cross border. (Biswas, 2015, p. 87)
Not only are people being forced to leave their homes, they are being forced to migrate to different countries. Biswas does a good job providing the information for her logos, but allowing the reader to fully understand the extent the traffickers take so they don’t get caught.

Weissmuller uses Nevada as an example because Nevada is the only state that made prostitution legal. Weissmuller illustrates that by providing sex services that ultimately, human trafficking would eventually stop when he says, “It 's the oldest profession, and it 's not going to go away until everyone doesn 't want to have sex anymore," says Hof. "So give me an alternative” (Weissmuller, 2015, para. 11). Which would be legal prostitution but, his argument doesn’t guarantee that human trafficking would
