Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"[T]he law forces prostitution into the underground where prostitutes become easy targets for pimps, criminals gangs, and violent clients. Anti-prostitution policies also ensure that sex work is conducted entirely in secret, and this is damaging to the psychological health of the practitioners. If sex work were regulated like any other occupation, sex workers could band together, work in partnerships, form support groups, have unions or professional associations, and define ethical and health standards. When their business is illegal they can do none of that. Their work is often difficult, and they must toil apart from any social support."
