When we criminalize an activity, we withdraw that activity from the protection of the law.

I think sex work should be legalized so that it is no longer de facto legal to abuse sex workers.

Pimping should remain unlawful and be more stringently enforced, as it involves so many other personal crimes of violence. Pandering should be regulated.

There are cases where people are transported from country to country and forced into sex work. This is a human trafficking issue, not a sex work issue. Legalizing sex work would drag this out into the open, and keeping sex work a crime creates a market for human traffickers.
