  • Should both be legal. The government has no place controlling what an adult does with their body.

  • abortion isn't legal everywhere.

    The reason is more people care about abortion, than prostitution.
    Those who care about prostitution can't allow there constituents to know it!

  • SOME prostitution is legal. Like the bunny ranch. And it's veeeeeeeery closely monitored, supervised, scrutinized, tested, etc etc

    I think *some* abortion should be heavily limited just like selling your @ss. You should have to see videos, attend a birth, a psych consult, wear a pregnant belly, hold your ultrasound photo, etc etc.

    Limits, rules, and regulations prevent mistakes and regrets.

  • I mostly agree w/ Shelley.... no one should tell you what to do with your adult body. But if you allow an egg to become fertilized you obviously aren't doing a good job and you require some laws/assistance to prevent you from making further screw ups. Like paying someone to kill your mistake.

  • Good question.

  • Prostitution is legal in Nevada....In fact, the infamous Mustang Ranch went into bankruptsy once, and the federal government found itself in the embarrasing position of running a brothel for a while...

  • what do these two things have to do with each other?
    but I think they both should be legal.

  • it just really, really breaks my heart that the waiting list in the USA for a newborn is like 5 years or so, infertile happily married white christian hetero couples with money in the bank would give soooooooo many of those "oops" a great great life.... and instead of costing you time/money to pay an abortion clinic, you'd have maternity clothes, medical expenses, etc etc etc taken care of for you. my brain quite literally does not understand the logic

  • Prostitution is not legal because they cant tax them for it. They can do it wherever and whenever and the gov wont know.

    For an abortion u need to go to the doctor, so they get paid.

    Answer by BrittanyD07 at 11:40 PM on Oct. 15, 2010

  • Exactly what BrittanyD07 said - prostitution is not legalized because it is difficult to regulate and tax it. Abortion is legal because it can be regulated (as much as any medical practice can).
