Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"Perhaps no other experience in American life draws a closer parallel to the prohibition of drugs, prostitution, and gambling than the prohibition of alcohol by the Eighteenth Amendment of the Constitution. America's great experiment, prohibition, raised fundamental questions about how law is created, and the role of values and cultural traditions in the law-making process of a democratic society.
The lessons of prohibition were learned only after years of upheaval, violence, suffering, and corruption. Even so, lessons learned often are forgotten by the next generation. It is history's important role to remind succeeding generations of thos lessons so that they can be learned in a way less expensive than hard experience."
