Hello! This is the first debate that I have the honor of hosting. I think it will be enlightening for both sides. The issue at hand is the legalization of prostitution across the board in the United States (or rather, being opposed to legislation AGAINST prostitution like the status quo). I will take the Pro and argue for the beneficial aspects of legalized prostitution and attempt to repudiate any 'negative' effects of said legalization. My opponent will take the CON and argue that prostitution should remain illegal in all 50 states (ignoring Nevada) and it's negative effects on society. I wish the challenger good debating! :)
(Burden of Proof rests on BOTH sides)

If prostitution is allowed then people will get STDs and unwanted pregnancies, bringing up a whole load of issues like whether abortion is right and wrong... Why do you want prostitution? It brings about worse than it achieves.

In the Uk prostitution is not a crime, but soliciting is.

A rather organised way to go about things i'd say.
