No change to current laws surrounding sex work and related charges. Brothels, kerb-crawling and solicitation remain illegal.
Keeping brothels illegal reduces the number of sex workers abused and/or exploited by pimps
Sex work is one of the most exploitative professions. The legalisation of brothels would legitimize the pimps, who have the most to gain from passing off legal protections to the state rather than creating a healthy working environment (which decriminalisation does not guarantee).
Legalising sex work opens the door for loopholes relating to sex trafficking and exploitation
Since full decriminalization of sex work also legalizes the work of pimps and brothel owners and expands the market, it will help them find cracks in the system to exploit prostitutes and commit sex trafficking.
Decriminalisation means sex worker specific support services will have their budgets cut and many will be closed
Due to sex work's current illegal status in many countries, sex work support clinics have been essential in supporting the workers where the law will not. If sex work is decriminalised, those support networks will be invalidated.
Decriminalisation opens the door to increased use of sex workers, leading to a culture that enables and encourages sex addiction
As our society becomes even more sexualised, legitimising the purchase of sex reinforces the idea that commodified sex should be the norm, rather than forging intimate relationships outside of formal transactions.
The majority of sex workers opt for this work in case of a financial crisis
completely legalising sex work would lead to promotion of selling their body for money, when they can earn money through various fruitful ways. leagalising it would lead to greasing the wheel for women in need of money.
