There is, on estimate, 42 million prostitutes in the world and our taxpayer dollars pay, annually, $250 million for prostitute’s court and jail fees (Prostitution Statistics).

The Chinese government has been trying to cover up this issue - illegal organ donors. A part of the society argues that there is no need to be ashamed of this action.
