    Anyone who works a job is a prostitute.

    There's lots of things I dont want on my property or on my street.....what's your point? Are you living in America?

    We're talking about legalizing prostitution and you are dreaming up more stuff you dont like. Seems like a personal problem to me.

    Please share how pro-female you are again, as you fight hard to draft more and more into prostitution and abortion clinics...

    Here's what we started with: the presumption that it was legal. Dont stoop to lying.

    Yes, they are working with Planned Parenthood to lure women into abortion factories.

    Re: Prostitution

    If it was legal how many here would be proud to have their daughter start up her own business?

    Yes,,, yes, I know the old "its her body" rant.

    I think of legalize prostitution packaged so cleanly and nice as those Quick Payday Loan commercials where all the customers look like they just got off work at the local stock market firm. But in reality the customers do not look anything like that.

    .
    Are ya proud of your son who drives around the porta potty truck, delivering them? How about the janitor? The lawyer? The son picking up the cigarette butts in the park?

    I'd be proud of all of them if they were putting food on the table legally.

    It's a job choice and legalization makes it safer for everyone. **If society didnt judge and hold it against a woman, it wouldnt even hold her back if she did it to work her way thru college or to support a family while trying to get a better job.** That's not HER fault.....that is judgemental assholes' at fault.
