Letter – Protect sex trade workers

What is more backward than the conservative double standard that exists where one women or group can take choices away from other women.

Protect sex trade workers

What is more backward than the conservative double standard that exists where one women or group can take choices away from other women. All women have the right to choice and having the final control over their own bodies.

Women, regardless of what they do, deserve the same rights and protection as any mother, daughter and sister or worker in our community. They deserve dignity, they deserve to be alive and not to become victims of violence or die in the context of their job.

As a former police officer, a onetime Catholic priest and as a father and grandfather of girls, I support decriminalizing the industry and coming out of the dark ages. Keeping women safer should be the only concern.
