    Legalize it, but limit it to licensed brothels and make sure the workers are tested on a regular basis. It's going to happen regardless of whether it's legal or not, and legalizing it will make things safer for everyone.

    Yes, if the prostitutes are subjected to the same regulations, frequent testing, taxes, and red tape as every legitimate business in this country. Prostitutes should be tested regularly for sexual diseases and should also have to meet government safety and performance standards. They should have to file for federal, state and local business licenses, pay self employment taxes and income taxes, buy liability insurance, workman's comp insurance, and health insurance, pay unemployment comp taxes, excise taxes, annual business fees, and territorial permit fees. There should be a department of the Health and Human Services regulating each prostitute with frequent audits and reviews.

    I would be fine with legalizing prostitution. If we made it legal like we make other US businesses legal, we would see a whole lot less of it than we do now. Just like we see a whole lot less of other US businesses these days.

Prostitution shouldn't be a crime. Nor any other sexual act between two consenting adults. Its God's duty to judge sins, not Uncle Sams.
    I think you've mistaken college for high school.

    Re: Should prostitution be legalized?

    Here is how it is straight up. If I want to charge a premium before I share my sexy man juice with another lady than by golly that is my right and if I have a hankering for some pussy and am not willing to get into all that relationship crap then helping put a fine woman through college in exchange for some sweet lovin' makes us both happy. No one's rights are being violated in such a scenario. That is the real issue. Using morality as some argument for restricting a consensual arrangement is quite ludicrous from people who support wars and oppression.

    Its hypocrisy to have abortion but not prostitution. Both are about a women's right to do what she wants with her body.

    Why would legalizing murder be worse for society? Is it because of no fear of punishment that killings might increase?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    You know, if you made murder legal, you'd get rid of a lot of serial killers that way who'd ask the question... "Where's the fun now"

    If everything goes just as planned, the woman is victimized. I'm of the opinion our women, children, male and female, should not be bought and sold by those who are bigger, meaner, or simply have access to resources others do not have. Human beings deserve better than that.

    .....and yet both are still harmful to women, children, men in particular and corrosive to society in general. I won't be hypocritical and simply say I cannot support either.

    Ah... that happens ALL THE TIME.

    Whether it's the wife with a better attorney during the divorce...

    Or a woman who leaves her husband for a man with more money and takes the kids along for the ride.

    You think she's in this for love?
