    This is why I can't support libertarians.
    I'm sorry you feel that way. If someone wants to sell their eyes, which only a blind person would do, then they should have the right to do so. Though, you make the mistake of assuming that all prostitutes are desperate for money, some of them prefer the lifestyle. I'm not talking about the typical road side prostitutes, but one's that work in brothels who have certain regulations and rules that they follow which includes their clients that visit them.

    Also, a man lost a couple of million dollars for eyes that he can't even use; who got taken advantage of?
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Should it be legal to pay someone to torture puppies?

    Nobody would sell their sight unless they were absolutely desperate. The question is, do we, as a society, have a duty to protect those who would be that desperate?

    That's cruelty to animals. That's illegal. Your hypothetical gets more and more insane.

    Getting high doesn't arm drug cartels, making drugs illegal and therefore extremely profitable does.

    Much of what you present as proof that prostitution causes problems are actually problems caused by prostitution's PROHIBITION and not the selling of sex itself.
    Hookers kill themselves because it's illegal?

    How is that the same as acting towards your own body?

    Alright, but puppies are put down legally all the time. What if I wanted to buy puppies from people, and pay a dog pound to have them all put down, just for the enjoyment of watching the puppies die? Should that be legal?

    No not the whole eye can be transplanted but the cornea is transplanted. But I suppose Fluffy doesnt care about that. So then we are left with a rich bastard paying someone to mutilate themselves. A person would need a bit off their rocker to go for that.

    I wonder what blind people would think of such a question?
