Standing Against Global Exploitation (SAGE) Biography

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

“Commercial Sexual Exploitation, or CSE, is not a victimless crime; it affects everyone it touches – from the exploited and abused children and adults, to the purchasers of CSE-based services and their families, to the communities and cultures in which it flourishes. CSE has high costs in dollars and lives, yet it flourishes because of outdated assumptions, biases, and policies, as well as from a lack of understanding, high-quality research, and updated policy. We at SAGE aim to do our part to change that.”
