Transcript of Prostitution must be legalized in the Philippines to reduce

Prostitution must be legalized in the Philippines to reduce violence against human rights.
Should we legalize prostitution? Many arguments arise on how we tackle about prostitution. Legalization plays different roles in regulating prostitution in some of the countries in western jurisdiction. Each country has different approaches on how to settle the problem of increasing number of prostitution. A movement is incorporated to oppose conventional wisdom about prohibition. Prostitution’s illegality increases the violence related to sex work. Prostitution precedes entry into prolonged and repeated trauma, with most women starting prostitution as sexually abused adolescents.
Legalization of Prostitution will protect sex workers.

Pros :
Legalization of Prostitution would allow local authorities to control and monitor sex workers, protecting them from abuse.
Cons :
Sex workers will hardly rely on local authorities to protect them from harm
Legalization of Prostitution reduces sexual violence.
Pros :
Violence will decrease if Prostitution is legalized because prostitutes may comfortably call for help from the police or have somebody back them up.
Cons :
Prostitutes will continue to do their job whenever they are coming to the point of having an HIV aids.
Legalization of Prostitution will cut down sex trafficking.
Pros :
Legalization of Prostitution will entail the relocation of prostitutes as respected workers.
Cons :
Due to the illegality of prostitution, more people will rely and work as sex workers, resulting to the increase of population of prostitutes.
Legalization of Prostitution will protect sex workers.
We can think of a lot of reasons that might prove how decriminalization could reduce sex-related crimes. Once legalized, sex workers would be empowered to approach a police if they are in danger or having a problem with their clients and pimps. Furthermore, sex workers would also be given an opportunity to conduct their business on their own without the control of an abusive pimp, which reduces the possibility of violence and abuse.
Prostitution cannot eliminate rape when it is itself bought rape. The connection between rape and prostitution is that women are turned into objects for man's sexual use; they can be either bought or stolen. A culture in which women can be bought for use is one in which rape flourishes.
Legalization of Prostitution reduces sexual violence.
There have already been lots of studies performed and evidence gathered proving that legal prostitution reduces rape, sex violence, and other sex crimes. One study that shows the correlation between legalizing prostitution and declining rape cases comes from Rhode Island, wherein they accidentally legalized prostitution. Decriminalization would better protect people in the sex industry from violence and abuse. Police cannot and do not simultaneously seek to arrest prostitutes and protect them from violence.
Regardless of prostitution's status (legal, illegal or decriminalized) or its physical location (strip club, massage parlor, street, escort/home/hotel), prostitution is extremely dangerous for women. Homicide is a frequent cause of death. It is a cruel lie to suggest that decriminalization or legalization will protect anyone in prostitution. It is not possible to protect someone whose source of income exposes them to the likelihood of being raped on average once a week.
Legalization of Prostitution will cut down sex trafficking
While prohibitionists claim that decriminalizing prostitution and related activities – including pimping and maintaining of brothels – encourages the growth of human trafficking, recent reports and studies don’t support them. The average age of sex workers in Germany is 31. Criminalizing the sex industry creates ideal conditions for rampant exploitation and abuse of sex workers.
We believe that we will never succeed in combating trafficking in women if we do not simultaneously work to abolish prostitution and the sexual exploitation of women and children. Particularly in light of the fact that many women in prostitution in countries that have legalised prostitution are originally victims of trafficking in women.

Legalization plays different roles in regulating prostitution in some of the countries. Prostitution’s illegality increases the violence related to sex work. In the Philippines, we should legalize prostitution in order to protect women form sexual violence. The human rights will remain strong and women who seeks for desire will not be considered as prostitute. It will also help to regulate to decrease the early pregnancy of the womens in the Philippines because contraceptives will now be appropriate to use.
