    True, but I'm not 100% what it involves exactly. Does it mean that prostitution becomes legal and therefore free to practice anywhere and free to be bought by anyone or does it mean that you legalize prostitution but make the purchase of sex illegal? I dunno if that's considered a stupid question or not :P And I hope I make sense :P

    It's no business of the governments to tell two consenting adults what they should and should not do between one another. If there are two willing parties wishing to exchange money for sex then what harm is that?

    Why does the Conservative party advocate infanticide?

    Infanticide is killing a baby 12 months after it has left the womb, which is something I am against.

    If you mean abortion the reason I believe in the right to abortion is because I don't believe life starts till after the first trimester.

    As for the Conservative Party on abortion, it doesn't have an opinion its members do but it doesn't. Any votes on abortion goes to a free vote (no whip).

    Prostitution is already legal. However Brothels and organised prostitution are illegal. Legalising brothels will create safe working enviroments for the women, and i am guessing a consequence will be compulsory std tests and requirements for the girls aswell. By making organised prostitution illegal, we are forcing these women to work at illegal unsafe brothels run by criminals. We are also inadvertently creating a market for the sex trade where girls are pretty much sold into slavery from places like eastern europe.

    If you want to know this, maybe update how many people are for and against those matters in your first post so we get a clear point of view.

    Right to abortion --> For. This might be a harsh choice, as the 'baby' does feel the pain when he/she/it is being killed. Yes, killed, because it's alive. However, you can't refuse abortion when a woman is raped in my opinion. The woman would probably suffer more the rest of her life than the bably will. The same goes for a 13 year old girl, because a pregnancy can be dangerous for 12-13 year old girls. That's why I'd say 'for', but only in extreme situations.
    Drug legalisation --> Against
    Gun control --> Undecided. In many countries guns are illegal. The main argument is that 'everyone can buy a weapon' so people are in real danger for criminals when they can buy a weapon everywhere. The fact is that criminals are usually the only group of people who actually own a weapon in those countries. That leaves the non-criminals helpless. Of course there are enough arguments for gun control, so I haven't made up my mind yet. Maybe an independent research for crime rate in countries (with the same wealth status approximately and government) with gun control and without gun control.
    The EU --> Undecided, but probably for. Pro: Better competition on the world economy. Con: Political power is too much concentrated.
    Euthanasia --> For (when the individual in question did sign for it in the time he/she was not mentally disturbed).
    Stem cell research --> For.
    Legalised prostitution --> For, but only for 18 / 21+
    Gay marriage --> For
    Gay adoption --> For
    Positive discrimination --> Against.
    Capital punishment --> Against.
    Faith schools --> For
    Immigration --> For, limited.
    National service --> For a few months perhaps, otherwise against.
    ID cards --> For
    Nuclear disarmament --> For.
    Corporal punishment --> Against.

    You're wrong. The life clearly starts even before conception. It's human life that you might be talking about.

    Well, On faith schools I'm not really undecided. I agree with them being allowed for private schools, just not in state schools. The EU I put undecided, but I like the idea of a European market, just I dont like the current institution of the EU. National service is the only one I'm quite undecided on. I'd more than likely fall on the 'against' side of it though.

    So what is your point? We shouldn't kill life, even if all it resembles is a microscopic collection of cells.?

    So there's never any discussion of illegalizing the purchase of sex? Why not?

    Firstly on principle. What right does a Government to stop two consenting adults coming to an agreement for sex.

    Secondly , Even for our Government, trying to make sure no-one pays for sex would be an almost impossible job.

    Thirdly, It would just add to the problem of organised crime, and increase the danger for women who do wish to sell their bodies tenfold.
