Sex Work Decriminalized in New York?

Will New York become the first state to decriminalize sex work? The answer is yes — if it was up to this group of advocates, lawmakers, and sex workers fighting to push through legislation to improve the lives of people in the sex trades.

    I'm getting confused. Sex workers to have basic needs but then sex trafficking needs to be stopped. Ok

    Way too many women and children are kidnapped and trafficked for sex every day but this is the priority 😒😒😒 how about using your rescources as former sex workers to free those who are being enslaved and forced into that life? Never met a hooker who always wanted to be a hooker since she was a kid, that's not anyone's goal in life, it's a last resort...

    Are you kidding me. New York politicians have no idea what they're doing. They have no value on human life have no morals. I pray for their souls

    so you only want what you feel should be legal to be legalized but what others say should be illegal means nothing to you ? if you want your opinions heard and recognized then the opposition has that same right to expect the same from you - not justice this issue but any issue

    So when a Pimp or a Customer beats them to a pulp we can call it occupational hazard. In reality this is New York creating another tax revenue stream

    True Sex in the City, wonder if there will be cameras. What is the going tax rate on organized sex? I guess some politicians will have to increase the sex cover up fund.
