Punish those who traffic and use prostitutes, but help prostitutes get medical help
- United State Senate
- United States of America
Prostitution has been an on-going and growing problem in the United States and around the world. In a few countries like, Sweden, Iceland and Norway, they use the Swedish model.
In this model the offenders who buy sex are punished and the ones who are sold are treated with the necessary medical treatment. As the numbers show, the rate of trafficked victims has lowered a staggering amount.
The United States should be a part of this model.
We, as Americans, should provide victims of human trafficking with a place to go and the necessary medical needs. The johns and pimps should be the ones who get a sentence or a harsh punishment. They are the ones who are responsible for these people getting sold and raped 25 or more times each day.
America should care for those who don't have a voice.
We, the undersigned, call upon the United State Senate to eliminate the unjust treatment of punishing prostitutes, who are human trafficking victims, instead of punishing the johns and pimps.
The Punish those who traffic and use prostitutes, but help prostitutes get medical help petition to United State Senate was written by Virginia and is in the category Justice at GoPetition.
