Glad this Bush era rule has been struck down, I have a feeling our Justice department didn't fight real hard to keep it in force.

I have come to the conclusion that when Scalia and Thomas go one way and rest of the court goes in the opposite, normally the opposite direction is the one that is right and just. We can only hope for the day when Scalia and Thomas retire and are replaced. That will be a great day.

The healine had me wondering if the article had to do with some of the justices prostituting themselves politically.

The language that was struck down by the court once again exposes the puritanical hypocrisy of some members of the US government.

Keep in mind that prostitution is legal in the state of Nevada (except for the counties where all the tourist go...lol).

Prostitution is also legal & regulated in a LOT more countries than many are aware of..... it's not just Amsterdam's right light district.

It's staggering that the Congress and all layers of courts have to waste their time and millions of our dollars on ultra-rightwing nonsense like this.

The only objective is to keep the public busy and distract the attention from more important issues

It just amazes me how short-sighted American piety is. Whether it's demanding drug tests for people who need food stamps, or dissing women who have no other choice for survival than selling themselves, or forcing women to carry unwanted pregnancy to term, some Americans will make a career of self-righteousness on the backs of these unfortunates.

And nobody even mentions that if the CUSTOMERS weren't there, women wouldn't be able/have to resort to selling themselves to survive.
It's always just the woman's 'sin'. Not just this subject either. grrr

Right.  It's perfectly in keeping with supply-side economics.

Robert's opinion appears to support prostitution. Why is Thomas on the Court?

This is significant affirmation of what sex worker rights advocates have been asserting since the advent of this policy. For those who don't know and want more information about this terrible policy-watch "Just Sign on The Dotted Line: The Anti Prostitution Loyalty Oath" https://vimeo.com/43262622 BUT isn't this only for US based organizations. Don't other organizations still have to sign the Pledge? I have not seen this issue addressed in any of the reports about this decision. Foreign organizations don't have 1st amendment rights, and that's why this doesn't make sense...unless that flaw in the policy negates the whole thing.

They had plenty of guidelines to make the decision, all the corporate hoes in congress.

It is not prostitution that is the problem. If there are customers, there will be prostitution. regulate and tax it like in more developed nations of the world.

I'm glad this has been struck down. In some countries, girls are sent into prostitution very young and once in the brothel, it's very hard to have any other life. As bad as this is, they should have access to anything that would help them stay AIDS free.

I'm sure they are very carerful, but some things can be passed from skin to skin contact, so sadly condoms won't always protect against say, HPV (including the kind that causes warts),

Sure, but the article refers to HIV, and prostitutes are very diligent about protecting themselves. Hehehehe, not that I would know first hand, but I live in a country where it's legal, and the gov't not only has a registry for them, but also makes them be tested every 3 months.

Doesn't this also make future abortion "gag rule" provisions unconstitutional?
