Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff Biography

Title:
Washington Bureau Chief of Die Zeit
Position:
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Legalized prostitution creates the same problems that legalized marijuana does. While prostitution is legal, forced prostitution is not. The latter occurs, and the new German law unintentionally makes it harder to hunt down human traffickers, especially from Eastern Europe and Africa. Similarly, it is harder to combat under-aged prostitution. With legalized marijuana and prostitution, Amsterdam became a magnet for human traffickers, drug traders and petty criminals. This is not the world legalization’s proponents envisioned, but it happened.”
