Obama speech to take on human sex trafficking

New York (CNN) - President Barack Obama will address human sex trafficking when he speaks at the Clinton Global Initiative Tuesday, according to two sources with knowledge of his planned remarks.

In an election year, human trafficking, considered by many as modern day slavery, is an issue with the potential to play well with female voters and Evangelical Christians.

Obama's remarks at CGI will follow a speech to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday morning.

    According to the GOP, women do not have rights, so look for an all out assault on Obama.
