Being Socially Progressive

First, legalizing gay marriage, then decriminalizing marijuana, now Canada's Liberals are considering decriminalize prostitution.

This is something I would be in favour of, not because I would go out and me a hooker, but because sex for money between consenting adults is a victimless crime. Plus a legal sex trade would mean workplace safety laws and benefits for abused women who otherwise work for little money or drugs.

The purpose of laws is not to enforce morality, but to protect the public.

Speaking of being socially progressive, the United States Supreme Court has outlawed juvenile death penalty.

Good news all around.
