Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Prostitution is consensual and is a business which women and their customers all are on board with.

1. Legalization would make sex workers healthier.
Workers may be pressured into not using condoms or protection from their pimps/masters. With this act legalized, it would require the workers and pimps to test for diseases and overall keep them healthier.

The United Nations also released a statement (UN): "Criminalization increases vulnerability to HIV by fueling stigma and discrimination, limiting access to HIV and sexual health services, condoms and harm reduction services, and adversely affecting the self-esteem of sex workers and their ability to make informed choices about their health."

2. Prostitution is usually a victim-less "crime:"
With all parties consensual, it is a completely accepted business with all people. Why should the government take that away?

3. Economy can Benefit:
This business can be used to collect tax revenue, leading to the government making PROFIT from this decision.

4. Having it criminalized does not stop it from happening.
Think about it, even though drugs are illegal criminals still find a way to gain access to them. Why not just make it beneficial to all parties and legalize it? We should.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro provided actual arguments, cited sources to support his claims, had satisfactory S&G, and participated in all three rounds. Con more-so attempted to derail the debate rather than argue in good faith, cited no sources, made some poor typing choices in the 3rd round (unnecessary character spacing and random capital letters mid-sentence), he also forfeited a turn. Therefore convincing arguments, reliable sources, S&G and conduct points all go to Pro respectively. However, Con did point out in his own satirical way that prostitutes can in fact be male; whereas Pro presumes prostitutes to be women (that aspect of the argument simply wasn't significant enough or presented well enough to win over any ELO points from this voter).
