With regulation we can start eliminating the terrible effects of illegal prostitution including: Violence, drug, STD’s and unwanted children. Prostitutes may not be morally acceptable to everyone, but nonetheless they should be protected. Prostitutes should have the same security and regulation other businesses should have. Decriminalization wouldn’t necessarily promote prostitution or make it seem like prostitution is a route everyone should be taking but allows the protection for sex workers currently in our society. With the current statistics on HIV/AIDS and other STD’s with prostitutes, the implements of brothels and proper testing we can help reduce the spread of these diseases.
Having legalized prostitutes conducting their business in one place, like in brothels or in specific identified areas, would help to identify those who are illegal or being trafficked. Equally important in the battle against human trafficking, recognizing free prostitution would allow police funds to be focussed on catching the real criminals of forced prostitution. If prostitution were made legal then police would not have to spend countless hours and money trying to eliminate it and protect the community from it. Some of the real crimes become neglected as a result and the true victims of forced prostitution are neglected as well. Resources, time, and energy that can help actual victims of sex trafficking are wasted on rescuing those who don’t want to be.
Legalizing Prostitution In the article 'Legalized Prostitution' the author, Mark Liberator, shares his views on legalizing prostitution. He believes because of women's specialized roles in society, they should be allowed to use sex as a service that can be bartered for goods and money, and by using these specialized roles, the author explains that allowing prostitution in the United States could lower a majority of murder and rape cases, and can decrease the amount of suicides and divorces. By making prostitution legal, Liberator also thinks that it will allow law enforcement to respond faster to more important crimes, help women that use prostitution as a career path, and will prevent teens from being trapped into prostitution. Though Liberator states his case strongly, and has statistics that help prove his point, his logic has holes that could even make cocaine, heroin, and other illegal drugs legal. Liberator states that our primal desires should not be ignored or suppressed, but instead should be managed.
According to Simon, though some of these laws work better for just the prostitution aspect and not the human trafficking. This is proven in a graph that shows the summary statistics of sex trafficking, human trafficking, prostitution and more. In this graph, you can see “the min ST is .29 and .75 for HT when PL is just 1 while with 4 PL ST is 65.98 and HT is at 141.80” (Hedlin). So, with this compromise two organizations with two goals that seem would never work together would actually come together and promote the kind of pro-human rights agenda that they are both truly going for. Amnesty International would help to promote the right of those who willing choose sex work and their safety while TFHT would be able to help out those who are forced into prostitution.

It is claimed that legalization will create safer work environments in a lot of ways. Prostitutes would be treated as any other worker and would therefore receive benefits. Facilities also tend to mean cleaner working spaces and taking prostitutes off the streets. Prostitution is a sexual career that has not been solved and that has always surface, so instead of alienating the workers they need to be protected by the law. Catherine Healy, National Co-ordinator of the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective accounts that “[s]ince the change in the law, people feel they can approach the police and report violence.

Prostitution should not be a crime as the US takes it, because the prostitutes are not committing an inherently harmful act. While there is an argument that there will be spread of diseases, increase in criminal activities, and health effects, all these has been challenged by the proponents side and in fact if legalized, it will lead to a reduction of the above mentioned issues. If prostitution is legalized, it will be regulated and therefore, all these implications being mentioned will be eliminated.

The first claim is the the decriminalization is a gift to the sex industry; giving dignity to industry, as well as the women. The main concern here is that the people running the industry are now normal employers. As discussed by Aquinas, not all vices can be removed, but we can regulate those employers through regulations, which is not able to be done currently. The next claim is this legislation would promote sex trafficking (sex slavery). Sex trafficking is selling people under their will into prostitution; if prostitution is decriminalized and law enforcement is able to protect and get rid of corruption, then slavery would be stopped.
