Rita Nakashima Brock, PhD, Founding Co-Director of the Soul Repair Center at the Brite Divinity School, is quoted in a Jan. 25, 2004 Sex Workers Outreach Project press release as stating:

“Prohibition gives cover to traffickers. It allows them to use the laws against prostitution to intimidate, especially when it comes to children. Women and girls being held against their will are afraid to go to police because they will be treated as criminals.”
