Baltimore Examiner Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“If history can serve as a guide, shame will not stop the profession. Because of that, the better solution would be to legalize prostitution as in parts of Nevada and the Netherlands – and tax the proceeds like any other business. That way the government could use the money to pay for programs to help women find a path out of it.”

Baltimore Examiner, Oct. 26, 2006
