    Make it legal, make it clean and disease free.

    You can never stop it, but you can make it safe for those that partake and those who sell.

    I see no reason for it to be illegal, other than to appease social conservatives. Religion has made sex a dirty, sinful deed. Maybe it's time for society to grow up.

    Prostitution bans are bull****. If you can give it away, you should be able to sell it. Makes no sense to me.

    Never mind the fact that these laws end up harming the women more so than if we just left them the hell alone and decide for themselves what to do with their body.

    I don't care if prostitution increases. It is one of those things that should not be illegal.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is an area where the police dept has to waste their time and efforts.

    If someone wants to sell/lease their body, then let them do it; it's their call. Heck you can sell blood, semen, donate your organs (once you're dead). Why are the latter any more noble than the first?

    Legalizing prostitution by bringing it out of the dark would lead to a safer environment for those that do it. Over time it would lose the stigma that it now has.

    In a country of 300 million plus million people it probably will.

    Re: Do you support the legalization of prostitution?

    The older I get, the more I believe prostitution is a cancer on our society. It involves pimping, human trafficking, and, transnational slavery in many of Europe's "success stories" like Germany. If there was a way to guarantee that these illegal activities didn't thrive off prostitution, I'd be all for it. However, as these other illicit activities are required to ensure cheap labor in many countries, I don't support its legalization on a willy nilly basis. In some countries, prostitution may work, however in America's case, some areas of the country have proven they're really good at ignoring slavery and oppression of some individuals by other individuals. So I wouldn't trust any state to create laws which do more than regulate taxation and STD testing on these women.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yeah, I think it should be legalized, but regulated, including licenses, regular medical care, etc.
