  1. I am a volunteer with the WellHouse, here in Birmingham, AL , USA. It is a transition home for women coming out human trafficking. I have had issues with the buying and selling of human beings for several years.

  2. Surely modern slavery is worse than in times past, when slaves were treated like farm animals, that is cared for in order to get the best out of them. Or treated sometimes with respect for their individuality, even sometimes as an extension of the family.

    There was ill treatment too, but it seems to me that is more prevalent now. Use them up and discard them.
