By decriminalizing sex work, sex workers would:

1) Have legal recourse in the case of abuse by client, police or street gangs
2) Have social services including health benefits, unemployment, and retirement plans
3) Have protection from sexually transmitted diseases by reducing unprotected sex and having access to screening and other health services
4) Their human rights would be protected and their lives dignified
5) Last but not least, they would be able to chose the career of their choice

The society would also benefit from decriminalization, because:

1. The incidence of HIV and STI would decrease
2. It would be more just, with everyone enjoying their human rights, sex workers too
3. The corruption in police and judiciary would be decreased More
