Legalizing prostitution is inhumane because it can cause the rise of crime rate and that would be big problem of the community. In an article, "Why Is Prostitution Illegal" article mentioned, the government claimed that legalizing or tolerating prostitution would create a greater demand for human trafficking problem.

Sex work indicate that individual take their decisions to employ in sexual businesses and trafficking for sexual exploitation take place when a person is forces to have sex against their will. There are arguments that rise over whether decriminalising sex work increases human trafficking or not. In most countries sex work is still regarded as a criminal offense like in South Africa. The argument that rises for the decriminalisation of sex work is that in countries where sex work is decriminalized they experience the number of reported occurrence of human trafficking. This incident shows the impact of decriminalized sex work increases the maximum growth of illegal industries in the world.
The Nordic Model also criminalizes those who traffic women to sell for sex, also known as Pimps. The most common argument against this is that the source of income is being taken away from prostituted women which will only serve to further impoverish them.

This treatment that they receive is unjust harm and is unethical according to Farley’s ethical framework. Prostitutes are now in some cases seen as a “victim of an immoral institution” (Green). A major form of prostitution that is necessary to examine in relation to the ethical condition of unjust harm is human trafficking. An organization called Traffick Free claims that there are 16,000 to 25,000 individuals in the Chicago area alone that are involved in prostitution and human trafficking (Dueholm 28). Society has taught us to blame the prostitute for the violent things that occur to them simply because they chose this profession.
For many of the workers, prostitution is a chosen profession. The group COYOTE, is a organization for prostitutes’ rights. They “advocate for decriminalization and even regulation of the sex trade” (Miller). This is a group of ex-prostitutes who feel the job should be legal, and regulated to help those at risk of being unemployed. If prostitution were to be legalized, then “the workers could be more readily protected from abuse by their employers” (Economist) or customers, so that the workers could be safer in a safer working environment.
Sex Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally. It is one of the biggest lies in society (Farley et., 2014). The Vanderbilt Law Review indicates that the majority of prostitutes do not enter the prostitution lifestyle on their own free will choice, but instead becomes a prostitute due to a variety of vulnerabilities that both pimps and traffickers exploit. This explains why young women get blindsided and think they are becoming a prostitute when in reality they are a sex trafficking victim (Elrod 2015). When the United States made prostitution illegal, it did not change the mentality of the johns.
However, agencies that served larger communities are more likely to identify human trafficking particularly sex child trafficking as a more pervasive problems. (Ferrel, Mc Devitt June, 2008). This mean the negative assumption of the local law enforcement towards the trafficking industry makes them unaware and an unproductive attitude to combat this problem. The exposure and reality towards the problem of trafficking industry should reach and well understand by the local law enforcement in order for them to manage the problems. Musa said (Bernama 20 June, 2009) Malaysian forces agency are committed in addressing human trafficking by tightening surveillance and check on travellers.
Ironically sexual protections as condoms are highly stigmatised in so many places. Not only women in general but women working as prostitutes also suffer from this severely. To quote from Stratton , as he states in his book that people doesn’t like the use of condoms when they hire sex-workers, “If I try to make them use it, they will go to somebody else. (102)” The way of preventing the virus transmission is blocked by another stigma. Thus, sex-workers are highly exposed to the probability of getting infected and HIV
Is raping a girl a right way to take a revenge? Raping a women to take revenge or teaching a lesson just because she is against the wrong deeds is not at all fair.
