George P. Dale, MD Biography

Title:
Doctor
Position:
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Very many well-meaning physicians believe that in the legal regulation and segregation of prostitutes and their regular examination we will find a remedy for all those social evils. If they will investigate the recent history of prostitution on the European continent they will learn that these means have been tried faithfully and found wanting.”

American Journal of Nursing, Oct. 1911
