Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"...[P]roperly licensed premises would mean that the worst aspects of the sex trade-child prostitution, trafficking, and slavery and the exploitation of vulnerable people-could be tackled. Licensing premises would encourage sex workers' access to health and social care.
...It is surely time for an end to the arguments of moral opprobrium and for some bolder steps towards legalisation if we are to improve public health and human rights."
Experts Individuals with MDs, JDs, PhDs, individuals with graduate degrees and significant post-graduate involvement in fields relevant to the study of prostitution, and government officials with significant involvement in, or related to, prostitution issues.
