Legalization of prostitution, rejected by Senate’s legal committee

The Senate’s Legal Committee rejected, yesterday, unanimously, the bill for the legalization of prostitution, promoted by the Democrat-Liberal Silviu Prigoana. Prigoana tried to get to the senators’ better nature by arguing that the main beneficiary of such a law would not be the state budget, but those who practice the trade, as they would benefit from social protection, healthcare, unemployment benefits and even a pension. The representative of the Interior Ministry, inspector Vasile Viorel, did not agree, however, arguing that the legalization of prostitution would amplify the trafficking of Romanian, “beautiful and still healthy”, women, expected to perform such services for a meagre pay in other European countries. The representative of the Patriarchy argued, in turn, that “it is not a law that we are debating here, but the nature of sin”, and that the legalization of the prostitution would be tantamount to a rupture between law and morality.
