Please demonstrate how legal brothels are able to forcibly take people from their homes and turn them into slaves.
    So that everything I post in this troll infested thread can be summarily ignored. Right. OP can't even be bothered with supporting his own claims, so therefore having set that standard for his thread, no one else is required to either. Folks who want to discuss the issue in earnest are again invited to take it to the loft.

    We pay doctors to make us feel better, why not prostitutes to make us feel good?
    That being said, I would be more prone to brag about my grandkids becoming doctors than becoming whores...

    By just a quick glance, it appears the vast majority of your points in that debate revolved around the consequences of illegal prostitution. It is the same as arguing that alcohol should be illegal because of the cruelties of the mob wars.

    I see that you list your location as Utah & Arizona, but your stating a view that is antithetical with most in the area. How are you doing there?

    Utah is mostly Mormon, but not as high a percentage as many think.....Idaho percentage is a lot less, as is Arizona.
    There are a lot of Catholics in AZ, not sure how that works now, but in the old days of Europe, the priests distributed funds from the poor box to the poor in the conventional way, unless they were known whores....the priests paid the whores for services rendered....

    Sure...medical reasons, safety reasons...and of course one of the largest reasons is it's an occupation that has been practiced...well forever and the idea that making it illegal stops it is insane. Just like prohibition it forces it underground and makes the activity more dangrous and lucrative for criminal elements.
