Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 11.26.17 AMPROS + CONS OF LEGALIZING PROSTITUTION
What are the pros + cons of legalizing prostitution? Why is there a movement to decriminalizing sex workers? And what about decriminalizing sex buyers, clients (“johns”)? How prevalent is sex trafficking and also the sex workers industry that are not forced/coerced and have a pimp?  Won’t legalizing prostitution be more or less harmful to sex workers? And won’t legalizing prostitution legitimize pimps into being law-abiding business people?
