Amnesty International considers legalizing prostitution

500 Amnesty delegates from more than 80 countries will gather at an international conference next week in Dublin to vote on whether to advocate the elimination of all penalties for sex work, on the grounds that it is a matter of privacy between consenting adults. Simply put, the Human Right group will vote on a new policy that calls for the global decriminalization of sex trafficking.

The sex-trade policy, according to the group is the best way to respect, protect, and fulfill the human rights of sex workers.

Its Deputy Executive Director, Cammie Croft said, "Sex workers are one of the most marginalized groups in the world so it is important that we understand how, as Amnesty International, we can work to support their human rights.

The violations that sex workers can be exposed to include physical and sexual violence, arbitrary arrest and detention, extortion and harassment, human trafficking, forced HIV testing and medical interventions" “They can also be excluded from health care and housing services and other social and legal protection.” she added. -

OK, everything will become legal in this world, any time soon. No qualms. Keep at it! Those doing good, should continue. Those doing bad should continue also. Some day, One day, we shall all meet the Almighty God and we shall give account of every minute detail of our lives on earth.

Even though it is illegal, they still do it in the open.
Is there need for this?

Smh. You legalised gaysm , now you want to legalise prostitution. May God save us all

I think it's a welcomed development. This will help keep them safe from sexual predators, and help prevent people from taking undue advantage of their situation. This also means the state can finally benefit from their trade by way of taxation.

It sounds like a silly idea, but I think it's totally worth it... especially when one considers their safety.

See what USA has caused? If gay have rights, prostitutes will want rights. Soon those who sleep with their mothers and sisters, those who sleep with other animals will want rights.

Amnesty international me no trust them. Promoting evil in world. People should stop taking these serious. The trying to impose western culture to every part of the world. You can not force people to embrace what is against their culture and societal norms

OK, the should. Allah has already said it in the Holy Quran. So it most surely come to pass. That's sign of end-time.

This amnesty international is really getting on my nerves. Where are the good people amongst them that actually make a difference? People are suffering around the world and of all topics they choose prostitution?

I don't think it is a bad idea! People will always figure out a way to have illicit sex, legalizing sex workers will make it difficult for sex workers to be recognized under the law and afford them solace and succour under the law.
