Supreme Court to hear prostitution law appeal


 

TORONTO – The Supreme Court of Canada is willing to take a look at the country’s main laws controlling prostitution.

The top court said today it will hear a government appeal of a ruling striking down the ban on brothels.

Ontario’s top court had ruled the ban on bawdy houses increased the dangers prostitutes face because it forces them to work outside.

The Ontario court also upheld a ban on soliciting and reworded the law against living on the avails of prostitution.

The Supreme Court will also hear a cross-appeal by sex-trade workers on the soliciting ban.

The top court says a stay on legalizing brothels will remain in place until it decides the case.

  1. Isaiah 59:14-15……….
    14 Our courts oppose the righteous,
    and justice is nowhere to be found.
    Truth stumbles in the streets,
    and honesty has been outlawed.
    15 Yes, truth is gone,
    and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The Lord looked and was displeased
    to find there was no justice………..

    • what?!!?!?!? I have no idea what you are talking about!

      • Psalm 11:3
        If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?

  2. What’s the big deal with prostitution? Has always existed, will always exit. Regulate it and let people make their own choices. But that, of course, would mean that people would actually be free. This would directly contradict conservative ideology, which is based on state morality.
