Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"The sad fact is prostitution has not received significant attention from law enforcement in this country or in the rest of the world for 50 years. Prostitution has been variously portrayed as a 'victimless' crime, a private matter and even evidence of female sexual empowerment.
While there certainly may be those who work as prostitutes by what they define as their own choice and who claim to find fulfillment, these statistically insignificant cases should not be the basis for international or domestic law or policy."
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.
