Bad for the Body, Bad for the Heart: Prostitution Harms Women even if Legalized or Decriminalized-New Zealand
With examples from a 2003 New Zealand prostitution law, this 
article discusses the logical inconsistencies in laws sponsoring 
prostitution and includes evidence for the physical, emotional, 
and social harms of prostitution.  These harms are not decreased
by legalization or decriminalization.  The article addresses the 
confusion caused by organizations that oppose trafficking but at
 the same time promote prostitution as a justifiable form of labor
for poor women.
