Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"The science is unequivocal: criminalization of sex work in Canada, and globally, has been an abject failure in protecting sex workers from violence, predation and murder, and has exacerbated vulnerability to HIV and other health inequities among sex workers...
Protecting the health and human rights of sex workers means removing all criminal laws surrounding sex work, including the purchase of sex."
Cowritten with Kate Shannon, "Kate Shannon & Sandra Ka Hon Chu: Legalize the Sex Trade," nationalpost.com, June 11, 2013
