Would you support decriminalizing Prostitution?

Dem Candidate Tulsi Gabbard supports it.  When asked, she gave a very direct answer.

My question to you is, do you support the decriminalization of prostitution?

I know there are many libertarians here who champion individual freedom.

Should the government have a say in what two consenting adults do with one another? 



I've examined the pros and cons of it. 

Those who advocate for it:

it takes the criminal element out of it, especially if the government takes it over and regulates it, makes it safer (in theory). 

no pimps, no organized crimes, reducing the violence towards women.

Prostitution is the oldest profession in human history.  no matter what laws the government passes, people will always pay for sex. 

What do you think?

No

Making legal what was once a crime is standing on a very slippery slope, that will be used to make this legal and that legal, once it starts it snowballs, same sex sex was once a crime and now  look were it's at.

History shows where prostitution is legal sex slavery and child sex slavery run rampant!

D2D, that's actually a very good point. 

unfortunately that happens now already...I wonder if legalizing it would exacerbate it.

since prostitution is a state law I'd say it was up to the state government on whether to legalize prostitution or not.   Some local governments in the US have legalized prostitution already.

One would think that a woman can  do anything with her body INCLUDING  ABORTING THE LIFE OF A CHILD AFTER  IT HAS EMERGED FROM THE WOMB.. that she could sell some saddle time for money.

Who are these  one-way thinkers?

Let's see now, after all it's her body her choice, she can kill the life she's carrying and walk away but if she sells some saddle time then in some states she can be arrested, so it may be her body but some states still control what she can do with it.

Abortion should be part of this debate. If it is a women's body, she should be able to rent it out, if that is what she desires!
