Responses to classmates must consist of at least 350 words (not including the greeting and the references), do NOT repeat the same thing your classmate is saying, try to add something of value like a resource, educational information to give to patients, possible bad outcomes associated with the medicines discussed in the case, try to include a sample case you’ve seen at work and discuss how you feel about how that case was handled. Try to use supportive information such as current Tx guidelines, current research related to the treatment, anything that will enhance learning in the online classroom.

The topics that surprised me the most were the ones I was most unfamiliar with, such as the taboo around menstruating for girls in India or the euthanasia for terminally ill children in Belgium. However, the most interesting topic I wanted to dive into was the one on human trafficking. We all know what it is and why it happens but diving into this topic was extra eye opening because it isn’t as black and white as we think. When one is asked what human trafficking is and what it’s used for, most people will automatically think of women or young girls being kidnapped for means as a sexual slave. While this is often times the case, women are not the only victims and sex slavery isn’t the only purpose-men, women, and children of all ages, races, and backgrounds have become victims of human trafficking with the end goal to have them used for things like forced (and often free) labor, forced marriage, forced begging, harvesting their organs, terrorism, money laundering, developing child soldiers, having them commit crimes for the criminals, and so many more terrifying outcomes (United Nations, n.d.). As a woman and a mother, this is a topic that greatly terrifies me for not just my children, but also friends and family who don’t think about this being a possibility-this is one of those things that people often think won’t happen to them, but it happens every day, right under our noses. Human trafficking shows its face in places such as the bar where your sister or best friend is out with her friends, at your child’s school waiting in the pickup line, in the text message you just received from the stranger who has the ‘wrong number,’ or even at your father’s work where classified documents are stored. The various methods of human trafficking are what makes it dangerous and almost transparent to the unexpecting-physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, manipulation, blackmail, removal or destruction of official documents or evidence, deception, threats, coercion, and so on are ways these predators capture their victims (United Nations, n.d). Criminals can be scary smart and deceitful-often times victims don’t realize they have become a victim until it’s too late-which is why understanding the methods, signs, and being aware of any vulnerabilities is such an important thing to not only learn but be always aware of. Especially in this day of technology, for social media and technical communications are one of the biggest ways people are being hunted; it is not uncommon for a trafficker to use seemingly normal things as bait, such as posting a job advertisement and waiting for victims to respond, all while being able to hide their true identity behind a computer screen (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2021).
