Will Prostitution Be Legalized?

Question by : Will Prostitution be legalized?
About 50% of all countries have legalized prostitution. It has existed since ancient times. Many great philosophers felt it was necessary for society to function. Statistics (that I know of) in the United States compared to countries that have legalized prostitution support the assertion that legalized prostitution improves the overall state of the country in terms of crime, health-care, and social conditions to name a few. Many people believe that legalized prostitution will proliferate and gain legitimacy, just like pornography has, but that the morals and ethics will remain a contention.
I’m currently doing a research paper on prostitution and have really been torn by the statistics and criticisms from anti-legalization supporters. However, I still believe I will argue in favor of legalizing prostitution in the United States. I’m also currently working on tearing down the arguments of Janice G. Raymond in her article “10 reasons for not legalizing prostitution”. I have no idea what kind of answer I want, I suppose just answer the title question and add your opinion or views or information that might be useful, opposition or otherwise. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
And that’s what makes it so hard to argue in favor of legalization. 8 (
>,< But whatever, at this point I'm just going to argue my side as best I can regardless of personal feelings. The problem is when I look at both sides of the situation I agree with both sides, I think its a newbie thing as this is my first research paper and I generally stay ignorant of problems, but it might also be to the nature of subjects like prostitution. I pretty much asked: "should there be war?", and then I'm trying to argue in favor of it lol...Best answer:
