Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"...[T]he most important argument for the legalization of prostitution services is that such prohibitions violate one's most basic and inherent rights. Prostitution is the voluntary sale (or rental) of a labor service. Individuals own their own bodies and their own labor services and have the absolute right to decide how those labor services should be used. As long as the prostitution transaction is voluntary, there is no justification for governmental interference. Indeed, such interference constitutes an infringement of the privacy and personal liberty of the individuals involved."
