A bill to legalize adult prostitution in Vermont was recently introduced by female lawmakers in the state's legislature, the Breitbart website reports today (January 12, 2020).
One of the bill's sponsors, Rep.Selene Colburn, said she believed decriminalizing so-called "sex work" would offer prostitutes more safety and improve their health.
She also stated that if prostitution were not considered illegal in the state, charges would not be brought against the sex worker or the buyer.
"By driving sex workers underground, we're creating much more dangerous conditions for sex workers. They should feel they have the protection of police if they need it," Colburn added.
