Though slavery has been outlawed by many, if not most, countries it still flourishes in many parts of the world in various forms. So slavery has not been abolished. There are a few countries that still have slavery though not officially. In particular, slavery in the literal sense (meaning ownership, buying and selling of human beings), can be found in some of the Islamic countries of West Africa and the Middle East. There are at least 25 million children worldwide in a sexual form of slavery every year. There are more children in other forced labor, and there are adults as well. Legally slavery is abolished in the USA, however it still exists. Slavery has never disappeared.
In the U.S., Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves within the Confederacy on January 1, 1863. Lincoln was concerned that this was done under his war powers and might not stand in peacetime. It was also true that there were some slaves held outside the Confederacy who were not freed by that proclamation. Thus the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, adopted December 6, 1865, finally abolished slavery in all the United States.
