...american cities like in Amsterdam. What would happen? I fear that the girls lives would be in danger not from clients but from the right-wingers. What is wrong with prostitution I do not know. But according to many it is very bad.

Yeah, just like all the prostitutes are being slaughtered by right wing zealots in Nevada, where it's been legal for decades. You should ask your teacher about it when you go back to school on Monday.

Yeah, because I am going to school on Monday. The point is that it would be more OPEN and not behind closed doors.

nope. its the truth, most christians are republicans. and they would never want to see a red light district like that of amsterdams in american cities and they would never want to see prostitution legalized. even if it meant protection for the girls from unruly males or services to help the women if they need it.

Now hang on just a second. First of all, your first post didn't say "republicans", it said "right-wingers". Second, it's a huge leap to go from "never want[ing] to see prostitution legalized" and "girls lives would be in danger".

Your post was intentionally inflammatory, and you were looking for a specific reaction - not trying to start a legitimate debate. Either that or you're not able to comprehend the difference between having a moral objection to something and acting on that belief with deadly force. Which is it?

right-wingers are republicans. Did you not learn that at school?
Ok, what i meant to say is that right-wingers(republicans) would not want to see prostitution legalized even if it meant it would be safer for the women/men involved that is why the lifes of the women are in danger.

It is like legalizing alcoholic beverages and tobacco. Every vice that becomes legal brings our society down. Nothing sinful will improve our country. Every sinful thing made legal will end up costing every citizen. I think it is better to let those involved in the sin do the paying.

I think prostitution should be legalized, just not in my neighborhood.

Just head on out to Nevada, do your thing in a legal arena. Simple, huh?
