A couple participants said that there are no benefits to sex trafficking, because exploitation is wrong and one person said it only benefits the people in charge. Sex trafficking should be illegal everywhere and perpetrators should be held highly accountable for their actions and pay for the pain and suffering they have made their victims face. Sex trafficking is dehumanizing and cruel. Women who do not consent to selling their own bodies, like prostitution, are responsible for themselves, whereas; someone else sells your body for sex to gain profit for themselves.
–Unknown Second, prostitution should be something of free choice, not to be stopped by the government. People have sex all the time; it is a natural part of human nature. Why should something like that be controlled and stopped? It’s okay for a woman to have sex with a man she hardly knows after he buys her dinner and drinks or jewelry or other trinkets, why is cash currency treated so differently? Prostitution should be a business where a service is offered for a price.
Sweden says to decriminalize the selling of sex, but to criminalize the buying of sex. This will help protect the human rights of people in prostitution while reducing the demands for paid sex. Sweden states that decriminalizing the buying of sex would protect people and make prostitution “safer.” There will be a decrease in human trafficking. There has been a study of prostitution in different countries where the buying of sex has been decriminalized. The studies show that sex trafficking is more common.
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 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.
Instead of having sex with the customer she would kill them and take their money. From her crime that she committed I can understand why it is illegal. The only problem with that not everyone wants to have sexual intercourse with a prostitute. It is basically like doing drugs or drinking underage or not there are people who want to do it then there are people who chose not to do it. I am not saying doing drugs and drinking is not a proud thing to do, but it is a human right
Max Shellenbergar PHL 202: Critical Thinking Professor Turner 1 December 2017 Decriminalization of Prostitution We all believe that we have the right to our own bodies, however if we need protection shouldn’t it be the government's duty to help us protect our bodies and create the best possible environment for the business person and the consumer. Prostitution is what is known as a consensual crime. This means that prostitution is directly a victimless crime, however there have been reports of prostitutes suffering from abuse of their consumer. The acts of battery are not a victimless crime. However, due to its current illegal state prostitutes are unable to seek help from local officials.
Some view prostitution as a business, selling goods and services to make a profit, but others view it as morally wrong. Most people think selling one’s body for money should not be promoted, but others simply see prostitution as business. Critics of prostitution are concerned with the ethics of the service. They argue that, prostitutes do not have morals because they are having intercourse to make a profit. This also ties into religion; most religious people believe intercourse should be shared between a man and his wife.
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

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).
