Unions would probably be the best enforcer of the industry. They would help ensure that under the radar would stay off the streets.

Instead of putting millions of dollars into stopping this consensual act, the money saved and made from the legalization of prostitution can be spent on fighting child prostitution. Prostitution has overcome every attempt by man to abolish it and even now we can’t stop it.
I think it is also heightening the playground for serial killers an other sociopaths to take out their frustrations and urges on innocent women. Another problem I find with illegal prostitution is that Pimps protect their hookers from the law, and from other pimps. If there was no law against it, then pimps would not exist, nor would they control the actions and moneys of their "employees" with violence or any other coercion. Prostitution arrests is rampid and have been proven to cause long-term increases in crime and drug abuse in society. What we need is a sensible solution to these problems like allowing specific places where prostitution and soliciting are designated and can be in a controlled and safer environment.
A sad story repeated across America and is very prominent in other countries. In America, a lot of the times victims are the ones that usually serve time in jail since in some causes it’s considered prostitution, even if it was forced by the pimp. In most cases, the pimps aren’t found out and if the victims of human trafficking come forward as to who their pimp is, they could get killed after serving time in jail. The laws on Human Trafficking should be changed to something that helps the victims like stricter cross-border communication, making prostitution illegal,
If a prostitute were abused, she would not go to the police for fear of being prosecuted (Perer 826). Many think that if the Johns (clients) were prosecuted instead of the prostitutes, the prostitutes would be more willing to get help (Perer 823). Another aspect that both parties agree on is sex trafficking. The bigger the sex work business becomes, the more women are sold into human trafficking (Perer 830; Sanders, O’Neill, and Pitcher 67). Human trafficking sparks a completely new category of prostitution.
However, only two can count a safety and the protection of law enforcement in their line of work. It’s been said that prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, yet it still carries an enormous amount of stigma, and is still illegal in one of the most industrialized nations in the world. Although prostitution and sex work in general have many negative societal connotations, its legalization would not only have economical benefits, and improve working condition for those already working in the industry, but would also control the spread of STDs and HIV in the sex industry. The truth as with anything, resists simplicity. The issue of legalizing prostitution is not a simple one and would come with many restrictions and provisions.
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.
Resources, time, and energy that can help actual victims of sex trafficking are wasted on rescuing those who don’t want to be. This is very counterproductive financially when everyone is painted with the same brush. Criminalizing prostitution forces it into the underworld where legalizing it would bring it more in the open so that human trafficking can be easily tackled. The legalization of brothels allows the government to have more control over the prostitution industry and gives them more ammunition to prevent the illegal forced trafficking of women who are exploited and coerced to
Prostitution is one of the oldest professions in history. In this modern age there are several classes of prostitutes with several methods of finding work, but they still face violence in their business. Though prostitutes are frowned upon by society and treated as criminals, under the law they should not be scrutinized by the morals of the people. Prostitutes frequently feel they have no options due to their illegal work, should they be assaulted they cannot turn to the police since many officers refuse to aid them as criminals. Prostitution should be regulated to fight human trafficking, increase quality of life for the women working in the industry, and generate taxes for the government while reducing the cost of dealing with prostitution.
Max Shellenbergar PHL 202: Critical Thinking Professor Turner 1 December 2017 Decriminalization of Prostitution We all believe that we have the right to our own bodies, however if we need protection shouldn’t it be the government's duty to help us protect our bodies and create the best possible environment for the business person and the consumer. Prostitution is what is known as a consensual crime. This means that prostitution is directly a victimless crime, however there have been reports of prostitutes suffering from abuse of their consumer. The acts of battery are not a victimless crime. However, due to its current illegal state prostitutes are unable to seek help from local officials.
Not only that, but if we make prostitution legal, it is possible that there could be an overflow of prostitutes, that would create larger drug chains, which could ruin our countries credibility as a safe place to live. I feel that legalizing prostitution is the first small step to that future, and that we should avoid making prostitution tolerable in America.

In closing, the argument that the author presents falls weak in most aspects. Though he seems to have positive end results to the issue, the immoral act of prostitution still is part of the solution.
