Podcast: Could Prostitution Be Fully Decriminalized in California?

An alarming court case (Erotic Service Providers Legal, Education and Research Project (ESPLERP) v. Gascón) is being appealed in the Ninth Circuit this year that argues California’s prostitution laws are unconstitutional and that call for prostitution to be fully decriminalized.

The results of this case could impact 20% of America’s population.

That’s why the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s Law Center took action and submitted an amicus brief to the Ninth Circuit, urging them to recognize prostitution as inherently dehumanizing and harmful.

Tune in to the “Sexploitation?” podcast to learn more about this court case and why prostitution should never be fully decriminalized.
