Why laws against prostitution are unconstitutional
Excellent article on the current 9th Circuit case in the Sacramento Bee by a law professor

Dave notes in Canada prostitution law against incalls - outcalls were always legal - declared unconstitutional based on harm reduction under their Charter of Rights and Freedoms - (Section 7 right to security of the person). The prostitution law deprived sexworkers of their right to security by forcing them to work secretly.

Chief Justice opined that "Parliament has the power to regulate against nuisances, but not at the cost of the health, safety, and lives of prostitutes."

In the U.S. we are not protected by harm provisions of the constitution but "liberty" at the forefront of the 9th Circuit current case challenging the prostitution law I have written extensively about.

In Canada, LE goes after the real traffickers and underage, not the pretend ones in the U.S.
