On Abbey 2 I wrote a post concerning a bishop from the UK endorsing the legal regulation of brothels. Brothels are just one aspect of the sex-trade industry. Movies such as "Butterfield 8" starring Elizabeth Taylor remind us there is a class structure within prostitution - not every prostitute works the streets or a brothel. (Think royalty and their concubines, the rich and their call-girls, or, as in previous days, women married off against their will into arranged marriages for money or property. Sounds like prostitution to me.) Nevertheless, prostitution in all of its forms is dehumanizing and degrading - not just to women, but all of humanity.
