Many poor countries have turned to prostitution as an outlet from their economic difficulties.

Legal brothels apparently transmit much fewer sexually transmitted diseases than does illegal prostitution. Thus, legalization will ensure the health of both the prostitute and her customer. There is so much that legalizing prostitution can do for society in general. Considering the improvement of economy, society and public security, prostitution definitely should be legalized. By making prostitution legal, governments are provided one more methods of controlling, managing and protecting prostitution.
Prostitution should be legal in the U.S because the government can help regulate the spread of STD’s between customer and prostitutes by periodically being tested, reduce violence/rape, can benefit the economy, and sex workers can get labor laws.

As a matter fact, the majority of the men and women who enter prostitution do it because they are financially disadvantaged and have no other options. Our society economically and institutionally oppressed people with lower socioeconomic status and criminalizing prostitution is just another form of systematic suppression. Furthermore, criminalizing someone because of their profession is immoral in the sense that we as a society have failed to protect the most vulnerable individuals in our society. Providing sex workers with a safe way to live their life is the moral thing to do. I’m aware that in our society, there are those who have the sentiment that prostitution is inherently immoral, however, I would argue that universally, exchanging services for money is a business ideal that is considered permissible in every society and even encouraged in most.
However, we as a society we need to realize that prostitution has been in our society since the beginning of civilization and calling it immoral when sex workers are just trying to earn money to survive is morally wrong because they are not hurting anyone.

Furthermore, criminalizing someone because of their profession is immoral because it's how they are trying to survive. Providing people with a safe way to live their life is the moral thing to do.

Legislation was passed to address prostitution, but the classification was to loose to categorize anyone definitively(Rollo-Koster). Generally, prostitution was not a lifelong career for women in the middle ages. Most women who dabbled in Prostitution only did so in times of great financial need(Roberts). Legal action was taken against mothers on several occasions for prostituting their own daughters out(Findlen). Aside for youthful prostitution, it was accepted as a necessary part of life during the Middle Ages.
While some individuals are morally opposed to the legalization of prostitution, it would have many benefits if legalized including: protection for both parties involved, less violent crimes, and it would benefit the economy. The benefits for the legalization of prostitution outweigh the benefits for prostitution remaining illegal in the United States. In Robert Trapp’s book entitled, “The Database Book: A Must-have Guide for Successful Debate”, he explains that prostitution has existed throughout history in all cultures and that the government needs to recognize that prostitution will not disappear. Therefore, the government should pass laws to make this profession healthier and safer for the individuals involved in the act of prostitution (192). By regulating these acts, the government would benefit as well as the prostitutes and their clients.

I know that prostitution is not a good working environment to be in, but no matter what men and women do in the streets, we must protect and give them the respect they deserve. They are human just like us, so we should not turn our backs on them like there garbage. Legalizing prostitution may decrease sexually transmitted diseases on both sides.
Criminal organizations are proven to degrade women and give no care for their individual rights as the women are not only forced to do things they do not want to but also the fact that they are acting out of obligation to the organization they work for (Admin, 2014). Additionally, in the current state of the law, women are in places far out of the reach of possible health or protection assistance. The protection and well being of a country’s citizens should be the government’s first priority. In order to protect the rights of a person involved in the sex industry, there must be government aid in legalizing. Not only do prostitutes often face abuse at the hands of buyers and pimps, but they are also stigmatized by the rest of society (Morgan et al., 2014).
