United Nations Recommends Legalization

Recently a United Nations committee recommended that prostitution become legal in every country of the world .

The UN says that legalizing the oldest profession and perhaps allowing governments to monitor health for people who engage in paid sex...will actually reduce HIV and AIDS cases.  Tomorrow night at 10  in a special report we'll ask whether that's a good idea. We've already heard both sides from  our facebook viewers. You'll get more points for view tomorow including a man who  believes in a higher law for men and women.

Pastor Mike Woods at Coronado Baptist Church opposes any notion to legalize prostitution.  "It dehumanizes women, and this is one of the things that's misleading in my opinion, that it would be humane for the sex worker and the customer, but really it's not.. It's degrading to women, it turns them into a commodity, instead of person created in God's image who is valuable."

What's your opinion? You can go on Facebook right now...to our page Newschannel 9 El Paso, and comment on the post we've put up this evening. Then join is at ten tomorrow as we ask again...should prostitution become legal here and around the world.
