This bill’s chief sponsor is Rep. Rob Nosse (D, HD-42)
This bill repeals crimes of prostitution, commercial sexual solicitation and promoting prostitution. It defines prostitution as “engagement by a person in sexual conduct or sexual contact with another person in return for a fee.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
NY Post writer states the cost of legalizing prostitution, “Nevada has a 63% higher rate of illegal sex-trade activity than any other state in the country and ranks in the top 10 for trafficked and exploited youth…only 10 percent of prostitution in Nevada is legal. Nevada also is ranked sixth in the country for rapes.” This that family values we want to portray for our state?
With the 2020 decriminalizing penalties behind hard drugs, legalizing of homeless trespassing, and of the legalizing of protest rioting it seems like Oregon is hell bent on creating a highway to harm yourself while erecting barriers to improve yourself. Is their greed so strong that trafficking seems like a normal activity?
I can’t believe this is even being considered! This bill if passed, would dramatically increase human trafficking, thereby codifying into law the victimization of human beings made in the image of God. With hard drugs having already been legalized, this bill would further erode the fabric of civil society in Oregon and become another stain on our state. In short; this is INSANITY!
