Ask your local MP to reject the fifteenth attempt to decriminalise prostitution and pursue a better way…
While decriminalisation has been found to increase prostitution, criminal activity and abuse – the Equality/Nordic model of prostitution reform has proven to reduce prostitution and trafficking, increase safety for women, and provide meaningful exit strategies for women.
SA Police Commissioner Grant Stevens has said decriminalising prostitution would place community safety at risk and allow organised crime to flourish. The Adelaide City Council also opposes the decriminalisation of prostitution.
Since prostitution was decriminalised in New Zealand, prostitution has grown exponentially. Street work has shifted to residential areas and waste is left in the streets and on private property.
The Equality/Nordic model is the most progressive and just prostitution law in the world. It has been adopted in Canada, France, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Northern Ireland, Iceland and Israel.
It targets the men and pimps that profit through exploiting women – not the victims. It decriminalises the selling of sex and criminalises the buying of sex. Most importantly it provides meaningful exit strategies for those who want to leave the trade.
Please email your local MP now to ask them to vote against decriminalising prostitution, and instead to enact the Equality/Nordic Model for prostitution law reform.
