Resources used to support "no"

Prostitutes solicit and accept payment in exchange for sexual favors. This form of income is despised by many because it is regarded as an act performed merely to satisfy an animal lust. It is also considered to be void of any emtioal commitment. Decrimin alization of prostitution may introduce regualtion of health care, taxes and business code standards for those choosing to work in this profession but, it opens the door to increased inequality and exploitation of persons in society. Prostitution is a mea ns of sexually transmitting diseases, including HIV, and is associated with drug use. These are not the types of activities society needs more of. Nor does society need more cases of physical abuse and assult, which are also associated with prostitution.
