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.
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.
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.
Prostitution has been called the world’s oldest profession but it’s one of the most controversial debates in America. Prostitution is the provision of sexual services for negotiated payment between consenting adults. So defined, prostitution is a service industry in which people exchange sexual favors for money or other reward. It 's high time to legalize and regulate this part of American culture which will lead to reduction of violence and keeping sex workers healthy. Safety is normally number one for all prostitutes and brothel owners, because a safe location is better for business but we 're not helping them by making consenting sex work a crime.

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 author of "Counterpoint: Prostitution Should Be Legalized” states, “prostitut... ... middle of paper ... ...galizing prostitution would substantially help to improve the health and safety of individuals and society. Prostitution should be legalized and regulated as society would benefit in various ways, such as the reduced spread of sexually transmitted diseases, economic benefits, empowering women, and reducing the violence toward sex workers. Because prostitution is criminalized many suffer as a result. It is inhumane to subject people to violence, rape, or abuse when it could be prevented if prostitution is decriminalized and regulated. Due to the illegalization of prostitution, this profession is driven underground which undermines the safety of prostitutes.
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.
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.
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.
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. Slavery is not constitutional and needs to be stopped. The decriminalization is also claimed to increase illegal and street prostitution; this illegal activity is going to exist either way. With the decriminalization, the people within the sex industry are more likely to turn in the illegal and street activity to
