Prostitution consultation deeply misguided

A consultation calling for prostitution to be decriminalised has been slammed by anti-trafficking charity CARE for Scotland.

The consultation, launched by independent MSP Jean Urquhart who is standing down after next year’s Holyrood elections, would allow the keeping of brothels, soliciting and kerb crawling all currently illegal under Scots law.

CARE for Scotland said the consultation was deeply misguided and would send a terrible message to victims and those who find themselves in prostitution because of a range of external factors such as poverty, abuse or trafficking.
