A Better Way on Prostitution

Julia Beazley, of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, writes on a recent report that analyzes Sweden’s ten-year-old campaign to reduce prostitution by prosecuting pimps and johns. It seems to be a dramatic success, not only in reducing crime and exploitation, but also in encouraging proper attitudes toward both sex and women. At a time when some of our Canadian and American politicians talk about decriminalizing prostitution–and a lunatic fringe defends it as empowering for women–this is refreshing news.
