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
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
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.
Just as a pornographer is be paid for sex, so is a prostitute. Just as a director gets some of the pornographers pay as do the John get some of the prostitutes earning. Illegalization of prostitution on the bases that it isn’t on film and that its doesn’t consent to the first amendment is in many ways discriminating. If you pay someone to kill another person, is it not illegal? If you are paid for drugs is it still illegal?
Prostitution has social economic, physical, and a number of mental implications.

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.
It is impossible to know for certain exactly what would happen were legal prostitution a reality, but in order to effectively evaluate the consequences of such a change, the potential dangers and benefits must be considered. First of all, with legality, prostitution would become safer for both the client and the prostitute. There could very easily be a government registration system through which prostitutes could get a license, the monthly or weekly renewal of which would require health check-ups.

The fact remains that there are people who are willing to buy and sell sexual pleasure, and a better question to ask is, what is the best way of managing these transactions that will result in the least possible harm and the most possible benefit?
Although this is true, the misconception is that “the public thinks it’s illegal but it’s not” (Prasad, 2017). Moreover, there is obviously a confusion with society thinking it is illegal, but they cannot be blamed because it is not being addressed properly. This article depicts Bill C-36, the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act, as an unchanged law, rather, it proves the issue of the sex industry going into the subsurface. The internet is a platform where you can find sex workers advertising their services, which is legal because it immunizes sex workers to advertise their services,
Prostitution has never been a criminal offence except in October 2000 where brothels and pimping were banned, however this was removed from the penal code. Regulation of prostitution means that they have a trade union. Thus their quality of lives are better as the labour law in place means they are protected from exploitation. My source states another way prostitution is regulated is by making it an offence if self-employed prostitutes aren’t registered by the government. Regulation is important to the Netherlands because of abuse such as human trafficking.
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
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.
