Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"If the laws are done right, decriminalization [of prostitution] is a better alternative because women can be their own boss. In a perfect world, there is no reason women can’t set up shop and run their own businesses the same way a therapist would."
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.
