This has always bugged me. Its okay to murder unborn babies but its not okay to sell yourself for profit aka Sex for 50 bucks. I mean when your actively Dating your basically selling your body already especially if your not in a serious relationship. You take them out to Dinner/Movie then go home and you might get the goods. For Men like myself the ultimate goal is to get Laid. I mean you probably spend more Dating then you would for a Cheap Prostitute.

Illinois Gov. Rauner signs bill allowing Medicaid for abortions



CHICAGO -- Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signed legislation Thursday allowing state health insurance and Medicaid coverage for abortions, ending months of speculation after the Republican reversed his stance on the issue last spring.


Looks like he gave into peer pressure from the Left.



The General Assembly controlled by Democrats approved the measure in May but delayed sending it to Rauner until Monday, in part because he has changed his mind about support of the plan.


Nope he gave in to Political Pressure from the Dems.

Mind as well make Prostitution Legal while your at it. As I thought this was all about a Woman's Right to choose after all its her body. So if its her right to choose whether she wants to abort why isnt it her right to choose to sell her vag?Sure Prostitution spreads Disease but Disease doesnt kill you right away like Abortion does.

You can't tax prostitution, that's why. If the government can't make money off of it then they make it illegal.

It really is as simple as that.

Really good question.

"My body, my rules".

Same with drugs etc also.

What harm does it do to anyone else if I get high in my own home?

There is no good reason for prostitution to be illegal. So yes, it ought to be legal too.

Pointless criminalizing the words oldest profession.

Yeah why not? Prostitutes could open a business right next door to the abortion center. Talk about convenience.

Why can't they? They can tax massage therapists and other professions that exchange money for physical services.

Now that I think about it prostitution is legal, it's just not called prostitution it's called porn. You gotta make your prostitution public in order for it to be legal, anything private (non-taxable) is illegal.

It's all about money, not morals or personal freedom.

Of course it can be taxed. No matter what the industry is, there are some that work under the radar and don't pay tax. If it were legal, it would be licensed, the ladies screened and checked on a regular basis for diseases. The government would get their share and the punters would get a clean lady.

Sex is the only thing it is legal to give away but illegal to sell (I think).

I visited Brazil some years ago and at that time it was the reverse. Prostitution okay, abortion illegal.

Because if it were legal it would be called porn. Private prostitution is illegal because it's not traceable or taxable, public prostitution is ok though because it is traceable and taxable. They just don't call it prostitution even though they're still getting paid to have sex.

How do you make it public? Voting.

Both used to be illegal.
But women who wanted the choice to regulate their bodies as they saw fit stood up and fought for it to become legal.
Women who provide sex for money are far fewer in number and did not stand up and fight for legalization.
Plus, many men supported not continuing an unwanted pregnancy for obvious reasons.

As for legalizing prostitution, the men in Congress would not support it because what would that look like to their wives. "You voted to do what??"
