'Civilised' to recognise prostitution as a profession: Italy

IANS 

Rome, Sep 12 (IANS/AKI) Recognising prostitution as a legal profession will be "an act of civility", Italy's far-right said on Wednesday.

"We've gathered thousands of signatures for a referendum," told Italian Rai's 'I Lunatici' programme.

"I believe that to legally recognise what is a profession, removing it from the grip of the mafia and the realm of exploitation, would be an act of civility," he said.

Society is mistaken to judge prostitutes for their occupation, said. "If someone freely choses to be a sex worker, who am I to judge?"
