Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"All states need to consider decriminalizing prostitution, applying occupational health and safety standards to workplaces (including provisions for street workers) and working towards eradicating discrimination. Restrictive immigration policies contribute to the exploitation of migrants and should be reviewed: sex workers should have the right to travel freely and obtain working visas and support networks should be funded. Finally, where sex workers have been forced to work against their will they should be offered every support and free transport to their place of origin if they so wish."
