This essay reviews the ways in which legitimating prostitution as work makes the harm of prostitution to women invisible, expands the sex industry, and does not empower the women in prostitution. What happens when prostitution is treated as “sex work” rather than when it is treated as sexual exploitation and violence against women? What
(Toh) Not to be confused with human trafficking, prostitution is done willingly where as sex trafficking is done against a persons will. Prostitution has been a very controversial issue in the United States and many states have even made it illegal. The 2011 Merriam-Webster Online dictionary defined prostitution as the act or practice of engaging in promiscuous
These are all reasons why prostitution should be made legal within The United States. One of the most important things that should be considered is the safety of sex workers. In The United States alone, there are more than 1.5 million women who work as prostitutes. With no agencies to monitor or regulate the use of protection against sexually transmitted diseases or the occurrence of violence against sex workers, lives are being put into unnecessary danger. In an article written for The Lancet, the authors state that “the prevalence of sexually transmitted bacterial infections was 80 times greater in 63 illegal street prostitutes than in 753 of their legal brothel counterparts.” (Loff, Gaze, et al “Prostitution...”) These numbers show how regulation dramatically reduces the risks
Legalized Prostitution By Simonique Hart Instructor Carl Waluconis 6/11/2008 In a world where freedom and equality is encouraged lives one of the greatest injustices of mankind. The oldest professions known to the human race is considered immoral, publicly shunned, and is illegal in numerous countries. Prostitution has been in existence longer than any other reported form of work, which proves that this profession is not just a passing fad and will most likely never cease to exist. There have been countless debates on the topic of prostitution, mostly on how to eradicate it, but the present controversy is whether or not prostitution should be recognized as a legitimate profession and therefore legalized. There are more than just two sides to the debate on prostitution, but all sides have some common ground on issues such as trafficking (forced prostitution), child prostitution, spread of STDs, and drug use.
The gangs promise the girl for the best job offer one can obtain, but force the teenagers and women into sex if they want to be alive. China is fully aware of this ongoing issue and has taken initiative to crack down and stop illegal human trafficking. China has made pacts with other Asian countries as well as African countries to help crack down on this issue. China has also been making and signing pacts with other countries in Asia and Africa. Human trafficking in China is very bad, perhaps the worst in the entire world.
Society deems it acceptable to openly shame promiscuous women, or even a woman who dresses in revealing clothing, if a woman provides any type of sexual image for herself, she’s asking for it, and any time where she is physically taken advantage of is dismissed as a slut being a slut. The issue here is innocent victims being blamed for the actions done to them. If we, as a society of intelligent and compassionate individuals were to focus as much energy into preventing the issue of rape as we put into judging and slut shaming, the issue of rape could possibly no longer be such an issue. By no means am I implying that getting drunk enough to the point that you lose control is in any way a smart or responsible decision, but, it does not excuse the fact that a woman was forced, by another person, to have sex. In any way it happens, rape is rape, whether it is a random ambush on a dark street, a close relative or boyfriend, or even, as hard as it may be for most people to believe, a drunken night at a party or a club.
Many prostitutes are taking advantage of, they are beaten by these men and many have even lost their lives. A pro legalizing prostitution Heidi Fleiss states that "nothing would happen to the client because he knows he won't be prosecuted for refusing to pay for sex". By legalizing prostitution "it would clean up a lot of crime and help protect women." "It would also reduce gender violence, allow women to escape prostitution" (Liberator). This would prevent guys from beating up prostitute and getting away with it.

Rape and sexual assault in our military has been a growing problem since World War II, as many as 500,000 men and women have been raped or sexually assaulted. According to Department of Defense, they estimate, more than 19,000 women and men were assaulted in 2010 alone. Also studies show nearly 80 percent of survivors never report for fear of retaliation, reprisal and intimidation. Victims are often afraid to come forward and speak up because they fear demotion, reprisal, scared of the gossip, or possibly being discharged while the suspect may remain in the military without any type of punishment. (USA;Military Rape) Politicians and high ranking military officials set forth a zero tolerance policy for the crime of rape and sexual assault.
I believe that it begins at conception, and that we are illegally killing innocent people. Abortion is an issue that I believe is a crime. Lawmakers in Congress keep abortion legal because they argue that it is a right to privacy which is also in the Constitution. These people neglect the fact that other parts of the law are being broken in this act. Only in special birth complications should an abortion be performed, for example one where the birth of the child could severely harm or kill the birthmother.
