Human trafficking is a serious felony and grave social problem because it most drastically violates basic human rights – the right to life, the right to choose, the right to freedom of movement. Whenever a person is sold or bought in order to be exploited by being forced to sex work, beggary, domestic servitude, theft or marriage, it is a case of human trafficking.
