Why is prostitution illegal, anyway? It should be legalized. Give those people proper medical care, standardized wages, and get them off the streets. Is our society really so concerned with the appearance of nicety? Do they really think that more people would use prostitutes if they were legal? If the moralists are really concerned about it, why don't we spin that if it's legal, then the thrill of doing something illegal is gone, and then fewer people would go to prostitutes. I doubt it, but that's what we can say.

Sorry, I have kind of strong feelings about this.

While the Italy story is horrible and shocking, it's also almost ten years old.
