    spin off surrogacy

    Advertisements
    I was reading the surrogacy thread and a thought came to mind...

    A surrogate effectually sells her body to another couple for baby making. A prostitute sells her body for the sexy time..... so.....

    We discussed prostitution in one of my classes the other day so its on my mind. I am not trying to say anyone who is a surrogate is bad, I am just saying there is a similarity.

    So why is one legal and the other illegal? Should prostitution be illegal? If so then shouldn't surrogacy also be illegal?

    Hmmmm. Interesting thought, but I don't think that prostitution is illegal because of the idea "it's wrong to charge a fee to use part of your body", I think it probably has more to do with public morality, safety, and health or some similar ideas. And whether you think that's right or wrong, I don't think there's much of a comparison with surrogacy in that respect.

    I agree BUT... I wonder what business the government has legislating morality when it comes to the decisions of two consenting adults. And why only certain kinds of morality? You can give your body to whoever you want for free, but if you want to be paid it's illegal?

    What if there was a surge of people in politics that believed that if someone couldn't have kids it was because they weren't meant to and decided to make surrogacy illegal? How is that different than criminalizing prostitution? It is still legislating morality.

    When prostitution is legal, it actually cuts down in the health risks.

    Yeah but being promiscuous for free is okay? If we are really going to make moral judgment on the behavior that two consenting adults engage in then why is it okay to have sex when you aren't married?

    And where did the idea come from that it is somehow moral to BUY a baby? Isn't that akin to slavery? How can you purchase a human?

    I can't argue this because I never have understood why prostitution is illegal

    I mean, yeah, its trashy and disgusting...but...even outside of the "surrogacy" argument...

    why is it ok for models to sell their faces and bodies (body parts) for money....but a woman sells her hoo-ha (last time I checked...a BODY PART)....she goes to jail

    makes no sense.

    Yep, totally agree. I don't get it either... Of course I don't understand why gay marriage is illegal.

    Also, prostitution is okay as long as there are cameras rolling during the act. So having sex for money is okay as long as it is for a movie? Is that really considered "acting">? LOL.

    Yeah, what others have said - Prostitution is illegal because of the disease and crime it has and continues to dredge up...But it's not illegal everywhere, still good to go in Nevada.

    Surrogacy is the equivalent of donating your organs, IMHO - no sex involved, it's all about reproduction.
