Debate Rounds (3)
prostitution and the sex industry promotes sex trafficking.
prostitution does not control the sex industry. It expands it.
prostitution increases clandestine,hidden, illegal and street prostitution.
prostitution does not protect the women in prostitution.
It boosts the motivation of men to buy women for sex in a much wider and more permissible range of socially acceptable settings
Prostitution as work doesn"t dignify women or human , its not a professionalism or dignify work.
Legalized prostitution encouraging the society to create a legitimate sex entrepreneurs or third party businessmen in sex industry. its trading human for profit,
No woman should be punished for her own exploitation.
Prostitution industries are one of the root causes of human trafficking
the International Organization of Migration (IOM) has estimated that 500,000 women and children are trafficked in Europe annually . In contrast, it has been estimated that 45,000-50,000 women and children are trafficked annually into the United States
One goals of legalized prostitution was to move prostituted women indoors into brothels and clubs where they would be allegedly less vulnerable than in street prostitution. However, many women are in
street prostitution because they want to avoid being controlled and exploited by pimps (transformed in legalized
systems into sex businessmen). Other women do not want to register or submit to health checks, as required by law in
some countries where prostitution is legalized. legalized will create a society view of prostitution is acceptable, it also encourages men to buy women for sex . men who would not
formerly consider buying a woman in prostitution think, "Well, if it"s legal, if it"s
decriminalized, now it must be O.K."
Most women in prostitution did not make a rational choice to enter prostitution
from among a range of other options. They did not sit down one day and decide
that they wanted to be prostitutes. They did not have other real options such as
medicine, law, nursing or politics. Instead, their "options" were more in the realm
of how to feed themselves and their children. Such choices are better termed
agree with me not to Legalizing Prostitution , when its legalized it will encourage and support unfaithful man , it will teach our future generation the wrong value in life. it will encourage businessmen in sex industry, human trafficking. criminal group will start to operate in city . will any decent businessman run a sex industry? most women in prostitution because of survival strategies.
Also, legalising prostitution would eliminate most pimps, because prostitutes would be able to work on their own. Sure, some would still work for pimps, but they would clearly act very differently. The reason pimps can abuse prostitutes is because they cannot call the police or complain in any way. Legalizing prostitution would give prostitutes a chance to report the abusive pimps to the police without risking their own freedom.
Human trafficking would be just the same if prostitution was legal. Legalizing prostitution doesn't mean legalizing human trafficking. Also, legalizing prostitution wouldn't have any effect of human trafficking, it wouldn't make it easy or encourage more people to do it.
Legal prostitution would also mean a very different work space for prostitutes. As long as prostitution is illegal, they must work on the streets. Legalizing it would allow them to work in more decent and safe conditions. This would also solve the problem of safety. Prostitutes are very vulnerable. This is why most serial killer kill prostitutes. When you allow prostitutes to work in decent, clean, safe, legal brothels, you also protect them from murderers or abusive clients.
These are the main benefits of legalizing prostitution. I don't have much time so I will post my rebuttals in the next round.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro makes a lot of assumptions in his argument, and each of the link stories are easily demolished by Con. Vulnerability of women to pimps, killers and poor work spaces goes down as a result of legalization, I buy that. I also buy that it becomes a safer occupation with regards to STDs. A lot was left out of Con's arguments that could have helped his case, like the fact that they would be able to choose their clientele, but he does enough. The only argument Con doesn't respond to is this point that prostitution will increase and that more Johns will engage in it, but Pro never states why this is harmful, not to mention that the point has a flimsy warrant (legalizing something doesn't necessarily increase the number of users). Frankly, much of Pro's analysis is just straight up wrong, especially his point that women who engage in this are, by necessity, desperate and unwilling, an assumption he in no way warrants or sources. Neither does he warrant increased trafficking.
