Prostitution in France: Paying for sex just got a lot more expensive
Date created :
FRENCH CONNECTIONS – Thurs. 14.04.16: Last week, French MPs passed a law that makes it illegal to pay for sex. Clients caught red-handed will be fined. Anti-prostitution groups applaud the new measure which recognises sex workers as victims, not criminals. But aid groups, doctors and the police are divided over the law. Meanwhile, many prostitutes say it won’t stamp out prostitution and violates their personal freedom.
