Adelaide, SA, “the city of churches”, but right now the city and state are being besieged by ungodly legislation – the prostitution decriminalisation bill, a surrogacy bill and we are awaiting the South Australian Law Reform Institute's report into abortion law reform. The Liberal party Attorney-General seems determined to enact as much destructive legislation as she can, and is front and centre in promoting all of these.
The news on Saturday 24 August that the SA Police Commissioner, Grant Stevens considers that the Prostitution Decriminalisation Bill (which decriminalises pimping and protects pimps) would place community safety at risk and allow organised crime to flourish, and the news that organised crime syndicates are operating in the SA prostitution industry, means that that House of Assembly should reject the Bill. As the editorial in the Advertiser last Saturday stated, lower house MPs should listen to the Commissioner.
