Reid Calls on Nevada Legislature to 'Outlaw' Prostitution
Published February 22, 2011 | FoxNews.com
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, urging Nevada to have an "adult conversation about an adult subject," called on his home state Tuesday to abolish legalized prostitution.
The Nevada Democrat issued the call during a speech to the state Legislature. Anticipating the challenge to their livelihood, brothel owners and prostitutes traveled to Carson City in advance to attend the address.
Reid cast his plea Tuesday as an economic decision, suggesting major businesses will not invest in the struggling state as long as it's the last holdout where prostitution is legal.
"When the nation thinks about Nevada, it should think about the world's newest ideas and newest careers, not about its oldest profession," Reid said. "If we want to attract business to Nevada that puts people back to work, the time has come to outlaw prostitution."
