David Norris on Sex Work, Ruhama and Prostitution in the Seanad today:
"I also want to take up this business of Ruhama, and Stop the Red Light (sic). Its time this type of nonsense was really, honestly addressed .Despite the puppeteering going on by this middle class collection of ex-nuns and radical feminists 98% of the women for whom the voices are being articulated by the self-appointed group are opposed completely to it .the police are against it, by and large. Everybody realises that its going to be inoperable, ineffective and going to lead to serious risks to the lives and welfare of women and men involved in the sex business. So yes, prostitution is messy, its regrettable but its a fact of life."
