New York Lawmakers Considering Bill That Would Legalize Sex Work

Street prostitute

New York lawmakers are introducing a bill that would broadly legalize sex work throughout the state. Together with the advocacy group known as "DecrimNY," legislators have crafted a 13 page bill that would make it legal to buy and sell sex under certain circumstances.

Supporters of the bill say 9 out of 10 made are at massage parlors, often illegal immigrant women from Asian countries.

As of now, Nevada is the only U.S. state to allow legal prostitution, which is permitted in some counties.
