    Look at how that frees up the criminal justice system!
    Support your assertion.

    Lmao, your whole argument relies on fallacies and now outright lies.

    Netherlands did legalize patient requested euthanasia only if they suffer from extreme illness be it physical or mental. This is after long consultations with the physicians in the relevant field to discuss alternatives. After a decision is made with one physician the patient must then meet with a second. It is never done without the patient's permission.

    None of this has to do with murder and The Netherlands crime across the board is at a lower rate than ours.

    Never made that claim. The post was a direct refutation to the implications she made that if prostitution would happen we basically open up pandoras box.

    We all know what a high standard of living prostitutes enjoy, after all. No exploitation, abuse, murder, or other demeaning activities going on in that profession, no sirree! More women should be prostitutes!

    Honestly, how depraved can you be...
    Unlike others, I dont believe in treating women like children, unable to make their own decisions. You pretend to worry about them at the hands of criminal abortionists and pimps. I believe in letting them choose their own destinies. Women are smart and capable and can make their own choices. We all make good and bad choices in life and reap both benefits and consequences.

    If prostitution is decriminalized or legal....there's no difference.

    Particularly when it's beyond proof that having prostitution illegal isn't stopping the criminal acts of pimps and others upon prostitutes, who then seem to have no recourse because they themselves are also criminals.

    How is it that they can't figure this simple stuff out, and yet they think they should be in control of women's choices?

    Of course it does. It reduces the crime of prostitution

    And do you have any data on your last sentence? It's pretty out there.

    Sure there is, when you lean on our street sign looking for money out of willingness to blow the next dude that rounds the corner with a 10 spot. Wont tolerate you and your customers in our area.

    Wow, you just make women into victims at the drop of a hat. I have more respect for my gender than that.

    You are just one big whine that IMO, is probably just hiding your judgement and wish to control other people's behavior.
