I think prostitution should be legalized. And sometime in my next four posts, so will you.
Legalizing prostitution will not only save billions of dollars for the government, it will bring in a very modest revenue due to its taxation. According the census bureau every year because prostitution is illegal in California it cost's tax payers over 100,000,000$ to prevent, prosecute, jail and house the prostitutes. And that is just in one state. Where in Nevada prostitution is legalized and monitered by the government it costs them nothing and gives them millions upon millions of dollars for schools, roads and government programs.
Legalizing prostitution will reduce the spread of STDs. In New Jersey one study found that 60% of prostitutes had HIV, but in Nevada where prostitution is legalized and heavily monitored by the government with monthly blood tests for every prostitute, of which not a single one has tested positive for HIV since 1989. Not that prostitutes constitute a large portion of the spread of STDs anyways, the governments best estimate 3-5% of the total spread. Teenage sex causes over 10 times as much.
Legalizing prostitution will cut back on all violence against prostitutes as well as drug use. Where prostitution is illegal, the hookers work for pimps and drug dealers who constantly abuse them physically and sexually. But even worse, john's constantly do the same and worse. If legalized prostitution will become a safe service with better care for everyone. This will also cut down drug use among prostitutes as they must submit a blood test monthly.
Prostitution is the worlds oldest profession, and it will be around as long as we are. We should make the best of it, not the worst.
