Doctors Didn't Believe This Woman's Harrowing Story - Until They Found Something In Her

In highly developed and economically prosperous nations like America, it can be hard to remember that slavery is still a common practice. Modern slavery and human trafficking are enormous problems in less developed regions of the world and can encompass physical slavery for labor, sexual exploitation, debt bondage or other commercial forms of enslavement. However, modern slavery is not restrained to less economically developed countries and some estimates indicate that there may be more than 2 million people in slavery across the Americas. One woman has recently highlighted the seriousness of the issue after approaching medical professionals and telling them she was being chased by human traffickers.

The unnamed woman was initially viewed with skepticism by a doctor, known only as Doctor ‘A’, after she told him there was a tracker in her body. After initially thinking that the woman was a bit crazy, Doctor A was stunned to find a small device in the woman’s arm when he probed into a small cut, saying: “Embedded in the right side of her flank is a small metallic object only a little bit larger than a grain of rice — but it’s there. It’s unequivocally there. She has a tracker in her. And no one was speaking for like five seconds — and in a busy ER, that’s saying something.”

The tracker is believed to be a radio frequency identification chip (RFID), a common product that is regularly used to track dogs, cats or livestock. When the woman recovered, Doctor A immediately apologized for his doubtful attitude and asked her why she was being tracked. The woman described how her ‘boyfriend’ had been selling her out to other men for money as part of a larger organization specializing in sexual exploitation.

The poor woman’s story has illustrated how prevalent and damaging modern day slavery truly is. Some organizations estimate that there are nearly 21 million people directly affected by human trafficking and many more people that are indirectly targeted. Sadly, approximately 88% of people affected by human trafficking have seen a healthcare provider while they are being targeted, indicating that people in slavery feel trapped in society. If you notice strange patterns in another person’s life, saying something might save another person’s life.
