The Christian Science Monitor September 10, 2012: HALTING A HARMFUL TRADE
Millions of men, women, and children worldwide are victims of human trafficking. Many face sexual exploitation. And it gets more complicated. By Stephanie Hanes
Monitor editor, John Yemma: “This week, our Commentary team launches a series of debates on election-year issues. On Page 35 are the pros and cons of marijuana legalization. We’ll also explore affirmative action, immigration, voter ID laws, foreign policy, health care, job creation, and the federal budget. You may agree with one side or the other. But just in case you don’t see the world only in black and white, we are also offering an essay that explores a middle way.”
