Prostitution is only the way it is now because it is illegal. If prostitutes did not fear the law, they would not have to submit to the abuse of their pimps. They wouldn't be afraid to report crimes against them just like any other business owner. Government has made that business what it is, just like when they outlawed alcohol and created crime families because of it. People still want the service, but when it is illegal, the evil people take over the business because good people tend to follow the law, even when it is unjust. This whole conversation is ridiculous and why it was posted with something about gay marriage is just beyond me.
Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
