We've been heading in that direction for a while, though recently some hopeful steps have been afoot.
    What's even sadder is the # who have kids just to have an extra hand to earn wages for the 'family'

    Do you share that view about child prostitutes ?

    Must we ban imports from the country?

    Considering that both the child's consent, parental consent, and consent of a public official is required, and if the conditions are good, I don't see why not.

    That's sad.

    It's been proven it's more stimulative for developing nations to pay children to go to school, get high grades, pay for medical visits and pay for their books and school uniforms.

    Bolivia is suppose to be Socialist, not an explotiative Capitalist hell-hole :'(

    Oh well, people always lie (Bolivian government, not you JoG)

    If we cut off economic ties to Bolivia they will probably find out that the new law does not actually reduce poverty but increases it.

    They showed some of the kids working the pits on German tv just now. Maybe they weren't real, but if they were, working the brothels would seem a major piece of luck fot kids.

    It is a rather corrupt country, socialist colors and aggravates the US wherever it can. No money for kids.

    Actually acceptance of child prostitution would be an extremely beneficial thing for Tourism (and especially Sex Tourism) in the country.

    NOT SAYING ITS WORTH THE PRICE.

    Just underlining the *possible* ancillary economic benefits.

    Price?

    There is some amount of good which would justify child prostitution in your mind?
