So, your real topic is things that just seem wrong, but you can't actually defend your uneasyness. Some things are just . . . WRONG.
Well prostitution isn't one of them. Besides that keeping prostitution illegal does more harm than if it were made legal. So people can not use the argument that prostitution causes harm as a reason to keep it illegal. Because that is a logical fallacy.
If both parties are entering into the situation fully willingly then why would it be considered harmful? If it were to be forced in the sense that the person is there against their will and would not do it upon their own volition then it is wrong. But a majority are not in that situation. In fact if you made it legal there would be even less chances of someone being forced into it.
No one who typically objects to prostitution honestly ever considers every aspect of the whole business when they consider it. They only look at one aspect of the business and that tends to be the part they disagree with the most and stop at that. They rarely ever look at what the effects of making it illegal will do. They don't care about those effects. They don't care that the demand for sex will still exist regardless if you make it illegal. They don't care that since there is a demand that women will get involved in it and put themselves into unsafe situations. They don't care because they write it off with some stupid comment like, "Well since it was illegal they get what they deserve if they are getting hurt because it's illegal."
Pimps would not exist to take advantage of women if prostitution were legal. Sure there would still be technically "pimps" however the conditions by which these women or men would work would be higher quality or better conditions. How do i know this for certain? Because no woman is going to work for an abusive pimp if they have the chance to go somewhere else that doesn't abuse them. Just like any other job. If you boss abuses you, are you going to stay working there? No, you'll leave. You think your boss is going to show up at your house with a gun and make you go to work to flip burgers. No. Never happens and it wouldn't happen if it were legalized. But since it is illegal, they can abuse the women because they have no other option, n0 other place to go. If they do try to find another pimp to work with, chances are the conditions will be just as bad.
Another aspect is that you can control diseases and the chances of spreading AIDS if you legalize it. You can have the women and men tested where as street walkers are not or rarely ever tested for AIDS or other STDS. So the chances of spreading disease is much higher if it is illegal. Sure you could tell people don't go to prostitutes and then you won't get an STD or AIDS but that is just plain silly. It's going to happen because the demand for sex is not something you can just make go away.
It does not even matter if you were to make prostitution a death penalty for convictions. There would still be prostitutes however if the penalty were that high, the price of it would also increase dramatically which would bring even more people into the business. It would solve nothing.
Not only would you make the whole business safer but you would free up police resources. So many law enforcement officers are spending time trying to either stop prostitutes or to catch sex buyers that there are far worse crimes going investigated or even looked into because they are too spread thin on trying to prosecute and convict people of this non crime.
Which brings me to court costs. All the trials and convictions of prostitutes or sex buyers eats up even more of tax payer money to pay for the lawyers and judges where this money could be spent on real crime cases.
Sex walkers would not walk on the street if prostitution were legal. More than likely they would establish businesses similar to a strip club, where the women can be in a safe environment and the men who go to these places can be monitored. The women or men can be safe from predators who just want to rape and murder someone. Which brings me back to police investigations of murdered prostitutes. There are thousands of murders every year that are prostitutes and police are paid to investigate these crimes. Which is nothing more than tax money. If prostitution were legal, these murders would drastically reduce, I wouldn't claim they would completely disappear but they would definitely dramatically drop. This means less work for police investigators and less tax money wasted on crimes that may never get solved.
I know this is getting long, so long story short. You must weight every thing in your consideration other than your own moral opinion. Sure you might consider it wrong, but that is not a universal truth. Not everyone thinks it is wrong. You don't have to accept prostitution nor go to a prostitute if it were legal. Just like alcohol is legal to consume, yet I don't consume it. I have never been to a prostitute and probably never would even if it was legal. However; I still support it's legalization because it actually causes the least amount of harm.
