If prostitution was legalized countrywide, do you think it would lead to a great many women being forced into the trade against their will? I've always argued on principle that prostitution shouldn't be against the law. I mean, why shouldn't a woman be allowed to legally sell what she can legally give away for free. But I recently heard an opposing argument I hadn't thought about. Basically that legalized prostitution would lead to more, not less oppression of women and many would be forced into the trade against their will. And for that reason, surrendering this liberty is worth the price. I'm not totally convinced, but the argument does make some sense.
