In the article, “Women have the right to be prostitutes” Kimberly Klinger makes numerous valid and commendable points supporting why women have the right to be prostitutes. Typically, one would here the classification of a “prostitute” and immediately think of a busty broad in revealing clothing waling down a damp, dark alley way of a run down city. Perhaps she is on numerous drugs and is prostituting herself to fund her dirty addictions. Perhaps all of her sleeping around has given her a few kids she must now feed, and that is why she is doing it. Or maybe, she just simply chose this as a profession. In places sch as Amsterdam, prostitution is completely legal, and because it is there are regulations that must be followed in such a career field. Since it is currently illegal in the United States prostitution occurs completely underground, which allows for no regulations and transfer of numerous STDs. Along with these diseases prostitutes are also abused by their pimps and in many cases do not have ample living conditions. The article I read by Kimberly Klinger states that women have the right to do what they please with their bodies, and the government is out of place to decide otherwise. Legalizing prostitution would reduce the amount of sexually transmitted diseases and would empower the women prostitutes. These are women who live their lives as free sexual beings, and this is what they are entitled to. No one has the right to tell them otherwise. In the underground profession of prostitution girls are forced into it, and are abused mentally, physically, and of course sexually. But when you allow women to make the choice to become a prostitute it filters out the negative aspects. This is what Kimberly was emphasizing in her article, and agree 100%.
