The Family Policy Institute has released the following concerning the S. A. Law Reform Commission's release of their discussion paper on adult prostitution for public comment:
S. A. Law Reform Commission Releases Discussion Paper on Adult Prostitution for Public Comment
The South African Law Reform Commission will be hosting workshops around the country to discuss law reform with regard to Adult Prostitution.
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the proposals contained in the discussion paper on Sexual Offences: Adult Prostitution and to focus on law reform initiatives in this regard.
The discussion paper is heavily weighted in favour of decriminalising prostitution despite research revealing this policy will be catastrophic for corruption riddled South Africa
SWEAT and other anti-family groups have been lobbying hard to decriminalize prostitution in South Africa to advance their own nefarious agendas despite overwhelming public opposition.
I appeal to all pro-family groups, Churches and Para-church organizations to attend a workshop in their areas to defend the dignity of women and the integrity of the family.
The workshops are the first step in formulating policy to amend the Sexual Offences Act
Family Policy Institute will be lobbying for the criminalisation of the entire sex industry with particular focus on arresting & prosecuting men who solicit and buy sex.
FPI will also provide solutions to get women and girls of the streets and into sustainable rehabilitation programmes that will restore their human dignity.
I have compiled an easy to read summary of several key points explaining why prostitution must not be decriminalised or legalised in South Africa.
You need to be equipped with this vital information to help bolster your arguments against decriminalising or legalising prostitution.
Please download and print the attached documents at the foot of this e-mail and use as a handy reference tool at the workshop
The Commission will consider inputs made and use insights gained during the deliberations in drafting its report on Sexual Offences: Adult Prostitution and its final recommendations to the Minister for Justice and Constitutional Development.
That is why it is vital that pro-family groups attend and submit their recommendations!
