    Should Prostitution be made Legal?

    It would bring in taxes

    Yes it happens anyway, and that way it will be regulated, so that diseases don't spread and there are no abuses by "pimps".

    Of course it should. The state has no legitimate interest in criminalizing private contracts of sale the object of which is a peaceful one.

    Well, in this case, I suppose it should be considered "mostly peaceful." Some people get a bit loud with it, which could be thought of as disturbing the peace.

    It is legal in many places around the world - Secret Service agents got in trouble because it looked bad not because it was illegal.  Moving it to the light would make it easier to protect the women involved in it from some bad characters.

      i think they got in trouble because they were foolish enough not to pay the poor gal, and they didnt realize she would go to the police, as was her right to do,.... they got busted for being criminaly STUPID, ha!

    as i hear hack polliticians tell me that there are "service industry jobs" that americans dont want or wont do, and thats why we have illegal imigration,.... i just shudder at the thought of what the DC priggs would do with the concept! ha!

    in all reality however,.... prostitution should ABSOLUTELY be legal,.... we ALL prostitute ourselves in one way or another,... a select few of us just invlove sex..... prostituting ones self sexualy is far less disgusting than other options i assure you.

      It is funny if you think about it.  If a cop busts in it is prostitution.  If a cop busts in and there is a video camera in the room then it is porn and it is okay.

      Likewise, if your name is Barack Obama and you want to sell three dollar tickets to a drawing for dinner at Anna Wintour's, it's politics as usual. Try that for dinner at your house, and you may be charged for an illegal gambling operation.

    yes prostitution has a dark appeal because it is illegal. I'm sure if it was legal there would be plenty of ppl who wouldn't be prostitues

    Yes, it should because there is no reason to prosecute some one for a private business arrangement between two willing adults. As long as this arrangement is not being made in public.

    like marijuana, it should never have been made illegal. i find it rediculous how so many people want laws that even govern our own bodies.

    Yes, it should be legal.  I bet the price would come down.  It is up to the person whether they want to sell their body. 

    It should be regulated just like alcohol and cigarettes are.

    All drugs should be the same as well.  We would see less crime and less prisoners in jail.

    Why?  Just because something as wicked and filthy as prostitution will happen anyway doesn't mean it should be made legal.  Wrong is wrong no matter if you can stop it or not. 
    "It would bring in taxes"----the Bible says the "love of money is the root of all evil"..........

      Yes, He did.  Money isn't the problem.  It's the "love of money" that causes a person to do something wrong that is the problem.

      i fully agree that prostitution is a moral wrong,... but so is gambling,... so is drunkenness,.. so is failing your children,.. but the state runs a lottry, taxes liqure and dictates child welfare standards.

      And I fail to see your point.........everything you mentioned is equally wrong.............Just because the state runs things a certain way doesn't mean it makes wrongs right.  The Bible is the absolute for right and wrong......read it! smile

      @Emily: Whether or not prostitution is immoral depends on the morals in question. Not everyone holds it so. The question wasn't about that, though, it was about legality, which has nothing to do with morality.
