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
On the surface, this widespread ban on prostitution may appear to combat the spread disease and sex slavery, but, upon further inspection, this assertion might not be supported by facts. The creation of a legal and highly-regulated form of prostitution in the United States could help slow the rate at which sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are spread, lower the demand for sex slaves, and improve the quality of life for the prostitutes that already operate in the United States, and should be implemented despite any moral or ethical objections some individuals may have. At first glance, legalizing prostitution may not seem like the best method for reducing STDs, and the preservation of public health might seem like a legitimate reason for continuing the ban on prostitution. However, since current prostitutes operate illegally, they may not have the motivation, education, or access to protection needed to practice safe sex, such as the use of condoms and receiving regular medical checkups for STDs. Now let us contrast this current situation with a legal alternative that requires frequent and stringent testing of prostitutes for STDs.
This is a direct quote of it from a book called "Prostitution: Prevention and Reform in England, 1860-1914": "Fears that it would infect the respectable world, destroy marriages, the home, the family, and ultimately the nation led to attempts to regulate and reform the prostitute and to prevent and suppress prostitution. Even though prostitution is illegal in most parts of the country and world, it is still legal in some places. And where prostitution is legalized it is government regulated and supervised. B. Not government
Researchers Barbara G.

Through the legalization of prostitution comes increased personal rights and health aids such as mandatory health screenings and available healthcare. Mandating the use of contraception, such as condoms, would help lower the rate of exchange of sexually transmitted infections (STI’s) in the profession. When the Bush administration incorporated the mandatory use of condoms and health screenings for pornography workers, the rate of exchange of STI’s dramatically decreased.
Further contributing to a moral argument for legalized prostitution, Simanti Dasgupta explains the moral implications and the silence that sex workers are forced into in the article, “Sovereign Silence: Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act and Legalizing Sex Work in Sonagachi.” The policies she describes take away a sex workers agency and limit the government’s ability to protect the sex workers. ***Need to find sources related to moral argument against sex
Legalized or decriminalized prostitution industries have become the major causes of sex trafficking (Raymond, 2003).

The act of the state in legalizing and supporting the violent acts of direct participants of prostitution holds it responsible and accountable for possible crimes that may be suffered by the victims in the future. Prostitution is a dangerous job, and the State is duty-bound to fight for the elimination of harmful conditions to promote the health and safety of the workers. The danger cannot be removed in prostitution if it will be changed to a legitimate profession since the act of prostitution is the harm itself (Datta & Post, 2013).
Prostitution refers to the engagement of a transaction in sexual activities with someone for a payment. The actual act of sex is not illegal, what is criminalized is everything around it – owning a house and selling sex (Alati, 2017). In this paper, I will argue that prostitution laws place prostitutes at a greater risk of harm by forcing them onto the streets and disallowing them to protect themselves. First, I will discuss the key aspects of the decisions elevated in the Bedford case while, providing an outcome of the decision made, and how the government responded to these arguments. Second, I will illustrate how the media depicts the criminalization of prostitution through (insert media coverage source and name).
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.
If Nevada where to legalize prostitution most of the prostitutes, in Nevada would not be any safer than when prostitution was illegal. There would be a rise in criminal activity and increase in human trafficking. There are many different opinions involved if legalizing prostitution in the State of Nevada. Supporters of legalization of prostitution in Nevada feel women will be safer, and there would be no spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Opponents for legalizing prostitution believe that prostitution is a victimless crime, with both parties agreeing to participate.
On the other hand, in the article “The Wrong Cure for Sex Trafficking,” Weissmueller argues that human trafficking is happening and prostitution should be made legal. Legalizing prostitution would decrease the need for human trafficking. When comparing the two articles Biswas uses a better logos and pathos argument. But Weissmuller
