This House would legalise Prostitution
Prostitution is a phenomenon which appeared with the birth of human history. Sexual desire of human being appeared quite a long time ago as an action of prostitution. Globally the size of prostitution market has grown daily while in Korea, recognizing it unethical as well as enactment of law of prohibiting prostitution has located the business underground. On the contrary, quite many countries in Europe have legalized the prostitution for the purpose of eradicating the harmful effects by protecting and managing those who work in prostitution business. Also in Korea, as statistics show that the number of prostitution actually increased after the enactment of prohibiting law, discussion on legalization of prostitution has been brought up again. Can legalization of prostitution reduce the negative sides of prostitution?
a. Legalization of prostitution enables systematic management and protection by leading the prostitution market to the sunny spot.

Legalization enables the government to systematically monitor those who work in prostitution business, improving general problems including protecting their human rights and working environment.
b. Legalization of prostitution can improve the negative image.
Legalization of prostitution will improve the negative acknowledgement of those who work in the prostitution business. It can ensure women’s self-decision right and respect their occupations which they choose. Respecting one’s right leads to granting responsibility; by collecting their taxes, the budget can be increased.
a. Legalization of prostitution is an action of merchandizing one’s sexual identity.
Sex of human being cannot be used as business under any circumstance for any reason.

Furthermore, legalizing such action is unjust action which merchandizes one’s sexual identity and sexual relationship.
