    What are the debates for prostitution being illegal which don't involve religious objections? We can test the workers for disease, we can tax it, what willing people do doesn't concern me.

    Before I sound too much like what our Tea Party fellows pretend to be, I don't support drugs besides alcohol and pot being legal. You just can't have ppl running about on PCP. But if they could go rent a whore instead of getting high life would be better.

    Right?

    Well this isn't going to be much of a debate lol!

    Maybe we can debate tax rates on it or something stimulating like that.

    In Missouri historically labor is not taxed while goods are. It is the type of industry which is gonna cost us some oversight so I'd say we may as well tax the labor done in the whore house?

    Me? Or the folks who are driving prostitution into the dark underground support violence against women?

    Far as I'm concerned, the ROTC / Frat house Rush Era fellows are finally making headway with me on the legalized pot thing so I'm just applying what I've learned elsewhere. Not to mention what prohibition had to teach me.

    If we make something legal it means folks don't need to go to drug dealers to get pot or mobsters to get whiskey, they can go to Walgreens.

    Similar with prostitution. Sure the classiest of gals will still end up trophy wife 3, old runway model types. We'll just up the quality of pimp from thug to businessman and give folks a decent option of reviewable places to go and get a classier $$$ whore instead of a $ whore.

    Go small government.

    Well maybe. Are we in agreement though that small government with a constitutional separation of church and state doesn't care about prostitution?

    Oh, who is "we"....I figure the state has to test the prostitutes. I really don't want to do it. Honestly I figure we have to tax their services enough to pay for that testing. While I'm all for small government I believe in immunizations and modern medical realities.

    Does Legalized Prostitution Increase Human Trafficking? by Seo-Young Cho, Axel Dreher, Eric Neumayer :: SSRN

    "Countries with legalized prostitution are associated with higher human trafficking inflows than countries where prostitution is prohibited. The scale effect of legalizing prostitution, i.e. expansion of the market, outweighs the substitution effect, where legal sex workers are favored over illegal workers. On average, countries with legalized prostitution report a greater incidence of human trafficking inflows.
    • The effect of legal prostitution on human trafficking inflows is stronger in high-income countries than middle-income countries. Because trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation requires that clients in a potential destination country have sufficient purchasing power, domestic supply acts as a constraint.
    • Criminalization of prostitution in Sweden resulted in the shrinking of the prostitution market and the decline of human trafficking inflows. Cross-country comparisons of Sweden with Denmark (where prostitution is decriminalized) and Germany (expanded legalization of prostitution) are consistent with the quantitative analysis, showing that trafficking inflows decreased with criminalization and increased with legalization.
    • The type of legalization of prostitution does not matter — it only matters whether prostitution is legal or not. Whether third-party involvement (persons who facilitate the prostitution businesses, i.e, “pimps”) is allowed or not does not have an effect on human trafficking inflows into a country. Legalization of prostitution itself is more important in explaining human trafficking than the type of legalization."
