California Madness Accelerates: Democrats Legalize Child Prostitution

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by Travis Allen, Washington Examiner:

Beginning on Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right.

SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution.

This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government with a two-thirds “supermajority.”

To their credit, they are sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking. Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side.

The unintended but predictable consequence of how the real villains — pimps and other traffickers in human misery — will respond to this new law isn’t difficult to foresee. Pimping and pandering will still be against the law whether it involves running adult women or young girls. But legalizing child prostitution will only incentivize the increased exploitation of underage girls. Immunity from arrest means law enforcement can’t interfere with minors engaging in prostitution — which translates into bigger and better cash flow for the pimps. Simply put, more time on the street and less time in jail means more money for pimps, and more victims for them to exploit.

As Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, a national leader on human trafficking issues, told the media, “It just opens up the door for traffickers to use these kids to commit crimes and exploit them even worse.” Another prosecutor insightfully observed that if traffickers wrote legislation to protect themselves, it would read like SB 1322.

Minors involved in prostitution are clearly victims, and allowing our law enforcement officers to pick these minors up and get them away from their pimps and into custody is a dramatically better solution than making it legal for them to sell themselves for sex. That only deepens their victimization and renders law enforcement powerless to stop the cycle of abuse. SB 1322 is not simply misguided — its consequences are immoral.

Unfortunately for Californians, SB 1322 isn’t an outlier — it’s only the tip of the liberal iceberg. 2017 will see the Golden State subjected to wave after wave of laws taking effect that are well-intentioned but disastrous embodiments of progressive utopianism.

One such new Democratic-authored law throws open the door to even greater government dependency on the part of the poor by rolling back proven reforms. In 1996, welfare reform was one of the greatest social legislation achievements of the last century, ending the lifetime welfare system and putting millions of Americans on the road to self-reliance and self-respect. In its wake, California lawmakers passed a law barring increased payments to women who have more children while still on welfare, in order to encourage women to achieve independence before having more children.

It’s a tough provision that works — which was apparently irrelevant to Gov. Jerry Brown, who just signed a bill repealing that prohibition. Henceforth, no matter how many children someone has while on welfare, the state government will ratchet up payments with each child, with no limit. Incredibly, the Democratic author of this bill claims she wants to discourage women from having more children while on welfare — but instead passed legislation replacing that effective reform with a law that restarts the cycle of welfare dependency.

      jdp…The leaders of CA WILL CAUSE THE WHOLE HOUSE TO FALL:and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions. THE MOUTH HERE IS THE LAND ON WHICH THEY STAND BECAUSE THEY ACTED AGAINST GOD CHILDREN BELONG TO God.

      But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

      • HAPPY chem TRAILS 2 you

        Jerry Br0wn was Je$uit trained

      • HAPPY chem TRAILS 2 you

        Jerry Br0wn was trained to be a Je$uit priest, and he is a tool of the Je$uits. And now Californy is bearing those wonderful Je$uit fruits. This is what happens when people don’t do any research on their candidates and you have a dumbed down society of andr0id idiots. Here is a quote from Jerry Br0wn:

        “I am applying the truth I was brought up on.” The truth of the Je$uits’ founder, Ignatius L0yola, whose principles, says Br0wn, have “worked for 400 years.” Well there you have it.

      On the logistical and personal level:

      training and passing the baton

      Ecclesiastes 4:9-12New International Version (NIV)

      Two are better than one,
      because they have a good return for their labor:

      If either of them falls down,
      one can help the other up.
      But pity anyone who falls
      and has no one to help them up.

      Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
      But how can one keep warm alone?

      Though one may be overpowered,
      two can defend themselves.
      A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

        wrong article.


    • Zabwe`

    • Anonymous

      Looks like another way for all those calif. politicians to make more money pimping off their offspring to the highest bidder.

    • Martus

      They legalized marijuana,

      • Martus

        They kill the unborn and sell the body parts, they legalized marijuana are legalizing child prostitution.

        The only people that will be arrested are those nasty Christians that stand up against this demonic behavior.

        Do what you will, will be the only Law of the US!

        Destruction comes when a society because too decadent for God to tolerate and force Him to take His hand of protection off that society so that it can be destroyed by the wicked.
