As many know, ACL is fighting the anti-women Prostitution Decriminalisation Bill sponsored by Attorney General Vickie Chapman. We are in reach of significant policy reform for prostituted women in South Australia. I am writing to thank you, and encourage you to keep going!
On the eve of the Attorney General Vicki Chapman’s second reading speech of the Bill which will decriminalise and protect pimping and brothel keeping in South Australia, a group of mainly young South Australian women expressed their opposition to the Bill by protesting outside the Attorney General’s electoral office on Greenhill Road.
The Australian Christian Lobby has expressed serious concern over the Legislative Council’s 15-4 vote last night to send the Greens’ Prostitution Decriminalisation Bill (which decriminalises pimping) to the Committee stage.
The Australian Christian Lobby commends SA Labor leader Peter Malinauskas who has raised serious concerns about the Greens' prostitution decriminalisation Bill.
The Australian Christian Lobby is urging all Legislative Council members to reject the Green’s prostitution decriminalisation bill in light of the news that girls and boys as young as 13 are being propositioned for sex on Hanson Road.

Talk of prostitution and you’re likely to hear someone refer to it as the world’s ‘oldest profession’. Abolitionists however, who want to see an end to exploitation and trafficking refer to it as the world’s ‘oldest oppression’. Mind you, prostitution is not something that most people discuss in polite conversation. But talk about it we must, as the NT Government has released a law reform discussion paper on the NT Prostitution Regulation Act and they are asking for feedback from all Territorians on proposed changes that will normalize prostitution, brothels, and therefore, exploitation.
The Australian Christian Lobby is concerned members of the South Australian Parliament are not being told all the facts regarding New Zealand’s industrialised prostitution legislation.
The Australian Christian Lobby is concerned calls for full decriminalisation of prostitution by a Victorian Sex Workers group will allow unlicensed brothels to flourish.
