Dem-controlled state house legalizes teenage prostitution. Seriously!
California's Democrat-controlled legislature keeps getting crazier: They've just passed a bill legalizing prostitution by kids under 18. (SB1322)
Yes, you read that right. As of Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California.
The rationale is that decriminalizing underage prostitution will somehow help victims of sex trafficking. No one has explained exactly how that's supposed to help, but the Dem super-majority doesn't much care.
Pimping and pandering will still be illegal, regardless of age. But legalizing child prostitution will simply increase the incentives for pimps to exploit teen girls, because legalizing child prostitution translates into more cash for the pimp.
Ending arrest of the girl means more time on the street, so more money for pimps. And more victims for them to exploit.
One prosecutor notd that if pimps could write a law to protect themselves, it would read like SB 1322.
