Urgent reform needed to end sex trafficking in Australian suburbs

The Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) has renewed calls for the enactment of the Equality Model of Prostitution law reform following Border Force raids uncovering sex slavery in Australian suburban brothels and massage parlours.  

ACL’s National Director of Politics, Wendy Francis, said “If the Queensland government are serious about protecting women, they will abandon their planned legislation which would encourage a growth in the demand and supply of prostitution. Instead, they must seriously consider the Equality Model of prostitution law reform which has been proven effective worldwide in stopping trafficking.  

“The uncovering of sex slavery in Australian suburbs also provides a further impetus for the South Australian parliament to enact the Equality Model, completing its principled approach begun in 2019 when it rejected full decriminalisation.”

Francis said, “How many more women have to suffer before we act?”

The ACL calls on all State Governments to consider the Equality Model of prostitution which is recognised globally as the most comprehensive approach to abolishing the ugly sex trade by repealing laws that criminalise people in prostitution, providing exit programs for survivors, and reducing the demand for prostitution by penalising, and holding accountable, buyers, exploiters, and traffickers. Our sons and daughters deserve no less.
