My friends and I have been discussing making prostitution legal, and they are say its immoral however one agrees that the facts outweigh the morals on
this. Now personally I think it should be legal since it is a victimless crime that harms no one, if they both consent in this case what is the
problem? Now the other two say that the government should enforce morality,use religion to create laws and that ultimatly all laws were based off of
Now I did research on victimless crime and this is what I found. Pesonaly my belief is that people should be allowed to rise and fall based on pesonal
morality issues, that most victimless crimes should be abolished, and the the government has no right or power to tell consenual adults in prvate what
they can and cannot do in terms of sex, and that the government has no right or power to enforce personal morality issues that involve sex etc.
"More than 350,000 people are currently in US jails for consensual crimes.
An additional 1,500,000 are on parole or probation for such crimes.
More than 4 million will be arrested in any year for committing such crimes.
Our governments will spend more than $50 billion in punishing people for ‘crimes’ that do not physically harm the person or property of another.
An additional $150 billion will be lost in tax revenue.
McWilliams also claims that if we just live and let live, we’ll be able to:
Reduce personal income tax by one-third,
Create 6 million tax-paying jobs, and stimulate the economy,
Reduce real crime by freeing the police to catch real criminals,
Unburden the court system,
Double available jail space,
Free federal authorities to track down polluters, terrorists, consumer frauds, and [Bush-style] savings-and-loan embezzlers, and
Create an environment in which people can live their own lives in their own way, free to experiment, free to fail, and free to succeed. "
