    Yes, and they need passports - just like the thousands of Filipino women who've legally entered through California, given work permits and then legally have been put to work as slaves. Human traffickers only need to be nice until the paperwork is done.

    Profitable in the sense that it would bear any kind of positive fruit for the society in general. We'll simply have

    1) legal prostitution
    2) illegal prostitutes being shipped in by those who find it more profitable to put slaves to work
    We already have number 2. Because a lot of women on the streets are addicted to drugs, they willingly sell their bodies for drug money. I don't know where you live but you seem very naive.

    And if prostitution is legalized, these women have an escape route. Now, not so much.

    Ah, you mean like Germany - where women have been legally transferred from one country to another and then legally put to work as slaves until the police find them in abhorrent conditions? Sure.

    Bad things are going to happen to people regardless. Regulation would protect a good many people though.

    So wait, your solution to that problem is making it more enticing to traffic women?

    Eh, I see what you mean, but in my opinion they are barely interchangeable.

    I disagree. There's going to be people who pay extra for legality, and if it's sufficiently regulated it would cut down on the spread of disease. What makes you think our government wouldn't be able to make prices sufficiently competitive? I agree, it would be more expensive, but would it be by enough for people to turn down not getting arrested, and not contracting STD'S?

    No my idea is to protect people who are going to do it regardless.
