Edward Tabash, JD Biography

Former General Counsel to Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics (COYOTE)
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"

“If we, as a society, really care about women, we will not only provide them with equal rights and opportunity, but we will stop turning some of them into criminals merely because they have chosen to exchange sex for money. Women, who, for whatever reason, choose to engage in prostitution, do not need to be incarcerated for their own good.

…Ideas that are commonplace today were once deemed radical. Today’s conventional religions were yesterday’s far-out cults. The time has come to legalize prostitution. “

LA Times, Aug. 11, 1993
