Liberals always claim they care about “the kids.” However, Leftist ideas rarely help. In fact, their lamebrain ideas generally hurt those the “idea” was intended to help.
Such is the case with SB 1322, legislation passed in Californicate that legalizes underage prostitution.
As The Examiner reported,
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 Left feel vindicated, as they have cut out the middle man in sex trafficking. Thus, children can now sex-traffic themselves.
Anybody can see how that will make things better for children. I’m shocked the “Pimp Lobby” didn’t fight this new piece of legislation.
Maybe the The Examiner can explain it?
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.
Translated: Bigger cashflow for street pimps means bigger cashflow for political pimps.
Liberals could have really made having sex with minors a huge offense, with mandatory long sentences. Knowing what happens to pedophiles in prison, a punishment like that would be a fate worse than death.
But why punish the perpetrators, when Liberals can enable children to make adult, potentially life-changing decisions?
Decisions like this make it difficult to believe that people would dare vote for Democrats. But the ignorant do.
They are fooled into believing Democrats care!
