Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"As you know, a major factor behind trafficking is prostitution. And that is why we appreciate that your proposed legislation on victim assistance does not legalize the activities of the traffickers....
Governments working with each other, with their business sectors, and with NGOs will solve this problem, by both summoning compassion and by seeking justice. We have triumphed over inhumane and unfair practices before, and we can do it again if we take the lesson of these experiences. That lesson is clear: new norms are established only when responsible parties use their joint power to enforce them. Enforcement is the key. Good intention is not enough."
