Sex Work

Celian Chan reblogged this on The World of C.C. and commented:

[Please write to the MPs now!] “You need not have to agree with people’s choices to sell or buy sexual services, but you MUST accept these choices and must restrain yourself from introducing laws that endanger people selling sex, even more so if there is no sufficient evidence that the measure would successfully make any prevention regards to the declared aim to reduce human trafficking. Therefore if you really want to protect sex workers and concerned for their well-beings, don’t give in to misguided bill proposals based on morality. As Justice Minister David Ford pointed out ahead of the vote in the assembly: It’s not about morals. It’s about how to best address the issues.” We all know that sex work can't be stopped, no matter how the law tried to stop over the years. So instead of more mistakes on policies being made, we should think again over the decisions on the policies.
