Proposers for criminalization argues that decriminalizing prostitution protects the pimps, but not only that it will also protect women sex workers. Decriminalization will protect sex workers from exploitation, trafficking and violence from these pimps. Laws will be passed against all these brutal acts against women sex workers which will deter men clients and pimps from doing any devious act against prostitutes. In the article “Buying Sex Should Not Be Legal” by Rachel Moran stated that, in the US prostitution is worth at least $14 billion a year. Moran said, “Most of that money doesn’t goes to these girls,” but if is was legal the law enforcement and the government would also protect workers from being underpaid and
It can save prostitutes from being hurt or getting sick. There are many reasons why prostitution is illegal some do make sense on why it is illegal. That still doesn’t mean that the government can tell us what to do with our life choices. A reason why it is illegal is because of homicide. How this works is by the customer promising a big load of cash.
While the client could legally buy sex, sex workers could suffer legal consequences as legislation made soliciting, brothel keeping, and living on the earnings made through prostitution illegal (Abel 20014). The effective criminalisation of sex work prevented prostitutes from receiving the same rights as workers in other industries. Sex workers are extremely
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.
Liberator states that our primal desires should not be ignored or suppressed, but instead should be managed. If this is the case, then should our first instincts to lie, cheat, steal, and kill should also be managed? No. Managing these things, and not suppressing them, means that we are making it legal to rob stores, lie about it, and kill anyone who disagrees with our reasons as to why we?ve committed the crime. 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.
Pimps will force these girls or women to perform the sexual acts taken place in Prostitution and then they take the money given. These pimps don’t tend to get much punishment because the women did the act of prostitution. Alex K. Rich expresses that prostitution needs to be more policed since there are so many loopholes. He goes further to say, “The bulk of the punishment, however, needs to be directed at those who have forced these women into prostitution and controlled them at every turn, namely the pimps and customers. One solution to the problem of prostitution is across-the-board enforcement of laws that prohibit or even criminalize the actions of pimps, customers, and prostitutes while providing rehabilitation opportunities and federal aid for former prostitutes”(Rich).
Many prostitutes will become drug addicts to better deal with the illegal sex acts they are performing, hoping that prostitution will only be temporary. Unfortunately when this situation occurs, prostitutes will quit selling their bodies but cannot kick the drug habit and in turn have to continue to solicit themselves in order to continue their addiction to illegal crimes; this is a depressingly vicious cycle. Both illegal drug use and illegal prostitution are part of public order crimes. Public order crimes are thought out crimes that often make society an innocent victim. Rather than just affecting an individual, public order crimes happen to the society that you reside within.
Should A Woman 's V-Spot Be Regulated By The Government When people think prostitution they think of sex for money, diseases, crime, work place violence such as rape and also robbery. In every way they are right. Prostitution has become one of our major issues in the U.S. It has caused spreading of disease, unplanned pregnancy, deaths and robbery. You would think that with all the issues given with prostitution that we should continue with its illegalization, but that’s incorrect.
Sex can be a victimless crime if prostitutes sell their bodies of a conscious choice. Most of the times, sex workers become their own victims, and it seems unreasonable to arrest prostitutes. On an aggregated scale, sex might be seen as a way of expressing meaning and significance. It’s a form of communication in the society, expressing emotions and interests, fulfilling some needs and offering affection or therapy for others. People, like sex-addicts, would find prostitution as a solution to their needs or at least they would know it is legal and it could be accessed without legal punishments.
