France's Socialist Government Try To Ban Paying For Sex, Again

4 posts in this topic

In true socialist fashion they'll stop at nothing when it comes to imposing their morality on others.

That the French economy is in shambles and other minor issues means nothing compared to this.

 

 

PARIS (AP) — A bill which aims to make it illegal to buy sex has been approved by France's

lower house of Parliament for the second time on Friday,

in a sharp battle that divides the two houses.

Supporters argue that the bill backed by the lower house and

the Socialist government would help fight human trafficking networks,

while opponents defend those who buy sex from France's 40,000 prostitutes.

The bill as approved Friday would penalize clients and remove punishment for soliciting.

 

The upper house — led by conservative opposition — wants the reverse, and rewrote the bill accordingly in March.

 

The legislation will return to the Senate where the same scenario will probably repeat itself.

At the end of a complex process, the lower house, dominated by the Socialists, has the final say

— but the ultimate vote could be months away.

Pascale Boistard, junior minister for women's rights, recalled what she said to express her disappointment

when the Senate rewrote the bill: "Prostitutes are still guilty and the customer is still king."

"I am happy now to say that this adage is over," Boistard said Friday.

Prostitution is currently legal in France, but prostitutes are often arrested and charged for soliciting in public.

Brothels, pimping, and the sale of sex by minors are also illegal.

The bill approved by the lower house aims to introduce a 1,500-euro (about $1,620) fine for buyers and decriminalize soliciting.

The bill, if approved at Parliament, would make French law one of the toughest against sex buyers in Europe.

It was inspired by a similar law introduced in Sweden in 1999.

Yeah don't worry.. We are the stupidest Nation in EU, they are voting laws that cannot be enforced and nobody gives a shit about them... Almost 10 years since it's forbidden to smoke in train stations and guess what people are still smoking there, same thing goes for the Subway I never saw some get a ticket for smoking...

 

The Socialists are taking people for incompetent idiots and they feel the need to regent every parts of people life (it's called "lois sociétales").... They feel obliged to do such crappy laws for us to be happy, we could be stupid enough to get hurt... The funny thing is that's the conservatives who wants to give people more Freedom...  Go figure ! 

 

To be honest I stopped punting in France for quite some time now because the scene is as fucked-up as the country (I should say as the big city ,Paris being the most fucked-up !)... Not a great loss and cops have a shit load of other stuff to do so...

Talk about pissing against the wind--this is more like doing it in the face of a hurricane if they think they're going to stop prostitution in France..
