So you are saying consent is not enough in itself to make something legal? That's exactly what I'm saying. The reasons to legalize prostitution are not hinged on consent, but rather of making the situation better and more sanitary for all involved, and improving the situation for all communities. Also, there is the fact that in legalized prostitution, no one is being harmed. In your cannabalism case, someone is beign harmed. "No man shall be deprived of Life, Liberty, or Property without due process." That's what seperates the two issues. In cannabalism, someone is being denied life (even if it is consentual) without due process. No such thing is happening under prostitution. No, humanity is a state of being, not a state of mind. If someone thinks you are a bird, he can put you in a cage and feed you birdseed. That does not make you a bird, though you are being treated like one. That's not humanity. As close as I can tell, that's freedom and liberty, totally seperate from the issues at hand. Actually, it works in my favor. EDIT: Zykalus Euthanasia is legal in some country, although there are some condition to ask for it. Nevertheless,that is a debate for another thread. This has nothing to do with prostitution, what is the point your are trying to make ? He's the one that brought up cannabalism, why, I'm not sure. I assume it's to catch me in a double standard. I responded to why cannabalism should remain illegal while prostitution should be made legal without creating said double standard.
