UN Panel Recommends Legalizing Prostitution Worldwide
A new report released by the United Nations-backed Global Commission on HIV and the Law recommends that nations around the world should legalize prostitution and intravenous drugs in order to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS. The panel “forcefully calls for governments, civil society and international bodies” to, among other things, repeal all laws against what it calls consensual sex work in the hopes that doing so will ensure an effective, sustainable response to HIV/AIDS.
This clip from Fox News explains the issue and offers discussion on the ramifications, and possible motives, behind the report.
