SA - Prostitution on the agenda
South Australian Labor MP Steph Key¬†has announced that she will introduce a private member's bill into the South Australian parliament to 'decriminalise' - that is, legalise -¬†prostitution in South Australia.
She made the announcement whilst speaking at a rally outside parliament - organised by SA prostitutes. She plans to have draft legislation ready by the end of the year and wants a 'conscience vote' on the issue.
The Adelaide media reported that the¬†rally was held on June 1 on the steps of parliament calling for 'reform' of the prostitution laws - and that also "supporting industry reform yesterday were Minister for Women Gail Gago, Greens MP Tammy Jennings and Liberal MP Michelle Lensink."
That reminds us of the cross-party motion in the federal¬†parliament calling for the legalisation of the abortion drug RU486.
Naturally, we don't support the legalisation of prostitution, since prostitution exploits women and demeans men and families.
Read the media report:
If you live in South Australia, it is important that you contact your MPs to ask them not to support the legalisation of prostitution in South Australia.
You have ONE MP in the House of Assembly but ALL the Members of the Legislative Council represnt you, so please contact all of them!
