Should Prostitution Be Decriminilised?

Below is a  discussion regarding the decision of Amnesty International to support the decriminilisation of prostitution. There are some interesting points made on both sides of the argument.

(In  the UK it is legal for someone over the age of 18 to buy or sell sex provided the sex worker is not subjected to coercion. It  is an absolute offence to pay for sex with a  person who has been forced into prostitution irrespective of whether the person handing over money is aware that the prostitute is being forced.

Many of the activities associated with prostitution are illegal. It  is illegal to profit from another’s involvement in prostitution and brothels are prohibited).
