This is not about prostitution, it's about pedophiles and child trafficking.

Is that website responsible for the hookers or do people take advantage of the website in order to get to do immoral things?
First Amendment isn't just Freedom Of Speech, it's Freedom Of Conscience.

Who made you the arbiter of morality? You are not Government but you sure are acting like North Korea.

Just might inspire some Conservative to find a niche in the market for a quality site to sell goods uninhibited by the left.

As long as prostitution is illegal and forced to hide in the shadows, the criminal element who controls it inevitably expands into child prostitution. There are far too many drug addict parents out there willing to hore out their kids for their next fix...

Of all "Criminals" I feel worst for Prostitutes.

Though I rarely fall for the "Bad Childhood" BS, for them I will.

The majority, I believe, have been severely abused.

Can they be "Rehabilitated" ? Maybe. I'd like to think so.

But if not they deserve safety.

If their crime has a "Victim", the Victim is themselves.
