Dublin City Council reject the Turn Off the Redlight Proposal to criminalise the purchase of sex

The debate on prostitution seems to have been rather one-sided, with more and more groups piling into the abolitionist camp. Thankfully not all are swayed by these arguments, and Dublin City Council rejected the call to criminalise the clients of sex-workers.

Meeting of Dublin City Council, 4th February 2013 – Mon, 04th Feb 2013 rejected calls to support the Turn Off The Red-light campaign. Amendments passed removed the proposal to criminalise the purchase of sex, and changed the report on Swedish evidence to hearsay.
