Background


The story of the oldest profession is the topic of religious, ethical, political, and constitutional debate. There are those who claim it is a victimless crime. Some believe that the prostitutes are victims without knowing it. Still others feel keeping it illegal only exacerbates the spread of disease with a lack of regulation, reporting when getting sick, and hospitalization when necessary.

Should prostitution be legalized?
 

Arguments For

Yes, it should be legalized

Yes, our constitution should give us the freedom to live the way we want as long as it does not hurt or tread on others freedoms.

Arguments Against

No, it should not be legalized

It is ethically and morally wrong. It is a crime that preys on desperate people.

Prostitution is a victim-less crime. Legalization would pave the way towards healthier conditions. The business would be controlled by regulations as every other business is, as so not to disturb or disrupt others. Social problems caused by prostitution should be dealt with through programs such as church or the community. Moral issues can and should be dealt with by individual communities and can certainly be banned in areas where the overwhelming community sentiment is against the business.

Freedom of religion should allow, however, other communities with far different opinions to run a safe business where no one is being harmed. - admin 0

I think it should not be illegal or legal federally, but allow the states to decide. - jennyhooah (twitter) vote up image vote down image 0
