Ari Armstrong, Founder of the Colorado Freedom Report, wrote in the Apr. 27, 2005 article entitled "Legalize Prostitution to Reduce Harms" on the organization's website:

“[P]eople have rights to control their own bodies, even in ways that are demonstrably or potentially harmful. The only way to ban every dangerous act is to impose a police state. There is no good reason why the government should arrest people for prostitution or (select) drug use, but not for obesity, bulimia, promiscuous sex, or a host of other activities that can be far more harmful. It is wrong for the government to violate people’s rights by arresting them for such activities, and it is morally correct to recognize people’s rights.”
