New U.N. Report Advocates for Worldwide Legalization of Prostitution

After two years of study, a U.N. commission produced a new report on “HIV and the Law: Risks, Rights & Health,” which advocates for the international legalization of prostitution. Proponents say legalization will decriminalize “voluntary sex work” and prevent the spreading of HIV/AIDS. Others, like Dr. Janice Crouse, the director of the Beverly LaHaye Institute at Concerned Women for America, say that legalized prostitution has historically spiked illegal trafficking as well, resulting in a slew of other problems.
