Is it time to decriminalize prostitution? | The Tylt
Americans spend more than $14 billion on prostitution annually, but it's still illegal in most of the United States. Instead of curbing the industry, prohibition makes the sex trade profitable for those who exploit it and dangerous for workers. Many say decriminalization will give sex workers much-needed rights and protect them from violence. But others argue all sex work is exploitation and say decriminalization will increase trafficking and abuse. What do you think?
