Just so I understand….
Legislation pushed by Burlington lawmakers would repeal state prostitution laws, regardless of the outcome of today’s Burlington City Meeting vote.
In Germany, Las Vegas, and other legal prostitution locales, the sex trade explodes, vulnerable people are lured into the business, and the number of men buying sex increases.
Sex trafficking is inherently dangerous and cannot be made safe by either regulated legalization or decriminalization – as the evidence shows where both have been tried, Maggie Kerrin of NEASE told Burlington City Councilors October 25.
Ten Vermont legislators have sponsored a bill (H.268) to create a “Sex Work Study Committee” concerning the legalization of prostitution in Vermont. This bill strives to rewrite Vermont history via an absurdly vacuous lie that Vermont prohibited prostitution because of “white supremacist” motives.
