Safety With Caution started this petition to Jacinda Ardern

I have seen many problems with decriminalising prostitution in New Zealand & would like to stop this & avoid it becoming a precedent for other countries.

Firstly it is far more likely your own daughters or nieces will know somebody involved regardless of your status in society & in turn makes it appear more desirable than when it was illegal. Once they are introduced to the legal industry the chances of them recovering safely are severely impaired.

Many more women are victimised with NZs slack law due to the fact that they can be pushed into it & once involved be too afraid of complaining as it's more difficult to prove they were victimised than if the trade was illegal. Police tend to take a complaint less seriously & this needs to change. 

The pros for this system are weak & only seem logical on the surface. The only winners as far as i can see is the IRD.

In a small community where that type of industry was already controlled by undesirables there is now less chance of a female escaping as there are influences from too many people who aren't directly involved with the trade. The huge majority of upstanding moralistic citizens are unaware of the sick methods & undercurrents these sad victims are facing & this needs to change today not tomorrow.

If you care about people in your community & don't like to see the vulnerable exploited then prove it & sign this petition.

I can assure you without going into detail here or getting too deeply involved you are doing the right thing by signing & will avoid a tragic future.
