A report issued by the United Nations-backed Global Commission on HIV and the Law; recommends that nations around the world get rid of “punitive” laws against prostitution – or what it calls “consensual sex work” — and decriminalize the voluntary use of illegal injection drugs in order to combat the HIV epidemic.
The study received funding from the governments of Canada, Norway, Australia, the U.S. (through USAID) and from billionaire Geroge Soros through his Open Society Foundations.
The United Nations referring to prostitution as “consensual sex work” shows no thought for sex-trafficking victims, and those enslaved in the industry due to drug addictions, abuse, etc. The fact that the United States helped to fund this study is also saddening. Especially since it was through USAID, which is supposed to be helping people in other countries, not encouraging we allow more abuse.
