Amnesty International Advocates Decriminalization of Sex Trade

Amnesty International approved a controversial policy Tuesday to endorse the de-criminalization of the sex trade, rejecting complaints from some women's rights groups who say it is tantamount to advocating the legalization of pimping and brothel owning.

Advance word of the Amnesty policy sparked opposition from some women's groups who argued that the human rights organization has made a serious mistake. The groups, such as the U.S.-based Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, have argued that while it agrees with Amnesty that those who are prostituted should not be criminalized, full de-criminalization would make pimps "businesspeople" who could sell the vulnerable with impunity.
So, the left used to be big proponents of freedom of speech. We all know those days are long gone. In its place, liberals now advocate sexual liberty of what appears to be virtually every possible kind, with the exceptions becoming fewer at a rapid pace.

Now they are pushing to legalize prostitution. How many times have these people told us, "Oh no, we would never advocate ______. That is extreme and ridiculous and you are not being fair by suggesting it. We never would." And then a while later, they not only push for it, but push for it under the banner of universal human rights. Is this what human rights advocacy has become? Advocating for the marketing of women (and others) as sex objects?

As if pushing to legalize prostitution wasn't enough, this new leftist human rights campaign would also encourage and facilitate international sex trafficking. Of course they say it wouldn't. Perhaps Hillary Clinton can vouch for them. They say they do not support sex trafficking, but by legitimizing these activities, they would be encouraging it and would make the stopping of this vile practice harder rather than easier.
