Pope appeals for concerted effort to eradicate human trafficking

Pope Francis describes the contemporary time within the perspective of utilitarianism wherein it is motivated by self-serving interests which results to many abuses against human rights.

In an online seminar focused on the exploitation of human dignity, the Pope delivered his message in the conference to commemorate the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.

The Pontiff said that the exploitation of the human person has become the modern-day slavery. It, hence, destroys the human dignity of each person, "This selfish point-of-view, keeps others from experiencing the fullness of their unique and unrepeatable humanity."

According to Vatican News, the Pope expressed his support for "efforts to assist survivors and collaborate decisively in building paths that lead to the common good and the full realization of human life."

The online conference was hosted by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Argentina with 600 participants from the various sectors such as Church representatives, politicians, humanitarian workers, and officials from Argentina’s judiciary. (Hazel Boquiren/RCAM-AOC)
