prostitution can make our economy down

I would hope that all viewers of this debate would judge on argumentation rather than personal opinion. Even though this usually doesn't come through to all, I feel better stating it... Now onto the debate:

A) Prostitution is always going to exist.
-No matter what we do, no matter how many laws we make or consequences we set forth, you will see that prostitution will always be around.

B) By making prositituion legal, more people will be protected.
-Look to the government here. Everytime they legalize something that could be considered bad (like alcohol), you will see that the use of it actually is much more prudent. Just like the abolition of alchohol, the abolition of prostitution has simply made people upset. Therefore, there is one more reason to do prostitution, to get 'back' at the government. Finally, you will see that if we can make regulations on prostitution rather than outlawing it, that when someone doesn't pay a prostitution, that they can go to the police rather than not eating for a week. Or when a jerk beats the living snot out of a prostitute, that they can go to the police rather than do nothing at all. But most importantly, there can FINALLY be a system of medically checking people for STD's and deadly diseases to prevent the negligent spread of these unnecessary diseases.

C) Prostitution is the choice of the woman and man.
-Why are we trying to prevent two people, from something they both obviously want to do (EG: make money and have sex)... Trying to outlaw this, simply ticks people off to an extensive degree, which actually furthers this act. But moreover, how does it affect you if a prostitute does anything? If you don't want to be a part of it, then don't. I certainly consider it something that I don't want to be a part of but in America, I feel it my obligation to allow other people to make the choice for themself rather than me make the choice for them.

=================================================

Off my opponents only argument thus far:

Economy--> An economy with prostitutes is actually BETTER than an economy without them. The money people spend, the more the money flows around the system. Essentially, the more people that spend money, the better the economy is. But also, you must recognize that people who are prostitutes are likely on welfare (since they don't have an official job). So do you really want your tax dollars to go to someone who is making more money than you anyway?

In the end, prostitution is a choice. Prostitution will always exist, therefore, if we were to continue this abolition of it, more people will actually get harmed. But finally, the economy is increased by making prostitution legal. Therefore, I urge you to vote PRO!

Thanks for this debate and good luck!

I know that pro made the arguments and yes he should have won. But i am just stating my opinion on the matter. I myself did not even vote for con. There would be no sense in debating if anyone voted for someone who didn't even argue. That is why i offered someone to challenge me on it.

I do apologize for any miss-communications that i caused.

Here is my actual stance on prostitution:

Morally- bad
legally- I don't think we have a right to impose our morals on others.

Dude, alex_hanson911, you are a total jerk. Even I know why prostitution is wrong, but that doesn't exuse the fact that jaycresanth didn't argue so johnicle is the better debater and wins this round. This site is not a we decide the issue forum or a place to discuss morals, its sole purpose is to bring people together around the idea of debate. Not the issues that we do so over

I do not understand how this is right, sure con may have made a better argument but people are voting on something completely immoral. If someone would like to take me up on a prostitution debate i am all for it.

What none of you look at is how sick and wrong prostitution is, it takes away the meaning of sex, is a waste of money, and provides financial support for those that are undeserving, and decided to be failures at life.
