    Three separate robberies of sex workers in Dublin last night. Three. Well done @FitzgeraldFrncs, you must be so proud right now.

    Looks like opponents of the law were right it would put sex workers in more danger. The law criminalises them for working in groups indoors. Therefore they go on the streets in more danger.

    Well one of its prominent supporters stated it will act as a deterrent to women entering the industry! Thus we have a rare law passed which was deliberately intended to cause harm! The only other one I can think of in my lifetime was The 8th amendment and even then, though it is an absolute disgrace, the harm is a by product rather than a deliberate intention with that ammendment!

    On 17th June 2017, the World Health Organization and the United Nations issued a joint statement on ending discrimination in health care settings which, inter alia, calls upon supporting States to review and repeal "punitive laws that have been proven to have negative health outcomes and that counter established public health evidence. These include laws that criminalize or otherwise prohibit .... adult consensual sex work".

    This outrageous law putting peoples' lives in danger and knowingly enacted in that spirit has got to go!
