    I firmly believe that prostitution is a very vulgar and unethical profession. It is unsafe and very immoral. There are many reasons why this should not be allowed to come to pass in our nation. This profession shows just how greedy people are, they are willing to sell themselves into a lifestyle of this sort just for a pay. And some not even for that! I have no doubt that if this was passed; there would be a great increase in STD’s, in the human trafficking, and in the delinquent teen state,…

    Around the world corrupted men and women sexually exploit children solely as a business move. Most of these prostitutes cannot escape, due to limited access to help and fear of retaliation from their bosses, commonly called “pimps.” These pimps control their constituents’ every move; most of the men, women, and children involved remain in captivity for several years (George 565). Through economic drive, a constant supply of victims, and governmental neglect, child sex tourism continues to haunt…

    Prostitution is the act of sexual relations for money. I support the act of prostitution as an occupation. While many people are against this “occupation” it would actually benefit the world so much if we legalized and supported it. Prostitution should be decriminalized because it will reduce crime, it will help us live healthier, and it will benefit the world. Many people don’t really look at prostitution as being a job. Their first thought is, “illegal”, “whore”, “is he/she being forced?”,…
