    So you'd say the southern states have a history of being open to change and increases in civil rights?

    You think prostitution is a civil right?

    I wouldn't classify it as a civil right, but a civil liberty, if that makes any sense. Maybe I'm just using word play but I think you know what I mean. Little college sluts go around sleeping with 20 guys their first year of college. Young gold diggers date and sleep with older men for the financial benefits, like all of Hugh Hefners girls. I have a friend I grew up with who had a knack for getting women, and he slept with over 200 girls by the time he finished college. No joke, I listened while he counted them all off. He couldn't remember all of their names of course. He'd be like "then there was Las Vegas, then there was New York, then there was L.A. #1 #2 and #3, then there was the pool party" etc. So, all of that immorality is perfectly legal but a man can't walk into a brothel and pay for sex? Personally, I think it is all morally wrong, but it makes no sense keeping promiscuity perfectly legal and brothel prostitution illegal.

    I don't support prostitution as a morally viable profession, however since abortion is legal, why should prostitution be as well? Two wrongs don't make a right, however laws have to be applied equally and if we going to allow women to control their bodies as well as that of unborn humans, then what's the difference? Think about it.

    Legalizing prostitution doesn't allow women to control their bodies. It allows the third party john to control their bodies. For money.

    I agree, with a conservative, yet.
    Being pragmatic, accepting reality, is the way to go.
    We live in a very imperfect world, we as humans are very imperfect.
    Morally, prostitution may be wrong....but its the imperfect thing.
    Having prostitution illegal is also a case of the state caving into the demands of the church.

    Why is prostitution morally wrong? A simple fact is that across the country people 'hook-up' for the 'hook-up'. So since people are regularly engaging in random sexual acts, why would it be any more morally wrong for one partner or the other to say, "look, skip the 80 dollar bar tab and the 100 dollar dinner...we'll split the taxi, split the savings, give me 90 bucks and I'll blow you."

    I know thats crass...but get beyond all the nicey nicey bull****, and why should you have to drop 180 bucks on the local economy on the pretense that its anything more than a random sex act?

    only if someone is forcing the woman to sell her body to the john.

    if a woman can choose to kill her unborn child, why the hell can't she choose to have sex for money? at least with prosititution, no one is getting killed.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    true dat.

    why should you have to spend $180 bucks on a chance that you might get some, when you can just straight up pay and be assured you are going to get what you want?

    Questions like this are precisely why prostitution should remain illegal. Prostitution encourages this kind of diseased thinking.
