Bonnie Bullough, PhD Biography

Former Dean of the Nursing School at the State University of New York at Buffalo
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"

“To us the obvious solution is the decriminalization of sexual activities between consenting adults whether or not money changes hands. The merit of such a system is that it would free the majority of the members of the urban vice squads for other tasks, specifically for crimes involving victims….

We need to deal with prostitution realistically and not brush aside the problems associated with it as we do today.”
