And here comes the moral cavalry riding (sic) over the horizon

my posts have NOTHING to do with morality

Some pay hookers, that's the cheap way, others take them home after the wedding and shell out for them for years. Humans being human.
yep - it happens. There is another way you know. Marriage between equals does exist, truly!

These women who fall into business with pimps and human traffickers, by thier own free will in an attempt to make some quick cash, are hardly victims by default. They are coming here with the sole intent on breaking the law - working illegally, not paying taxes, etc...
Wow. What a crock of shit.

Wind your biased, blinded opinion in and show a little compassion.

Human trafficking = deplorable and contemptible act of enslaving other human being (sad)

Prostitution = consensual act to provide pleasure and service offered by human to human (it can be funny)
Not sure which planet you're growing up on, but prostitution and human trafficking are very well inter-related.

This statement / attitude as well as previous ones really makes me want to barf . Am checking out, and would prefer to continue to inform myself over more informed channels.

lol, yes, i'm devoid of compassion. If someone chooses to become a prostitute, that is their decision and here in CH at least, it is their right.

If they are forced into prostitution, it is a tragic form of slavery.

Obviously there is a difference - and I don't have any pity for prostitutes who choose prostitution, more than I have any pity for a trash collector who chooses to collect trash or a banker who chooses to work in banking.

Obviously, everytime one tries to find connection between the two, one will always get upset.

At least in Europe, human trafficking of women for sexual exploitation may constitute about 85% of all cases:

Punishing the "customers" is a nice twist; I hope it'll actually work.

The article says 85% of cases of human trafficking reported involved sexual exploitation (which itself is not identical to prostitution, as there are other forms of sexual exploitation)

However, this is not at all the same as saying that 85% of prostitutes were trafficked.

Many prostitutes get there because of greed and stupidity and then get entrapped in a system they can't easily get out of.

If you're a school leaver and can choose between doing an apprenticeship and earning $hit or becoming a prostitute and maybe raking in 10K a week (cash, no questions asked, no taxes paid) if you're sufficiently good looking, its obvious that immediate greed will attract a certain segment of the population to the latter. It's only later that they realize that they're not going to stay 18 forever and that they haven't got a training or anything to put on their CV but that their income dwindles as their wrinkles spread yet they've got used to a good lifestyle and not saved or invested anything or even payed anything into AHV or a pension fund ...
