(Worthy News) - A federal appeals court gave the go-ahead Thursday to activists seeking to overturn California's 145-year ban on commercial sex.

A three-judge panel of 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said the plaintiffs' legal challenge against the ban may proceed.

The plainitiffs say the current law violates the right to engage in consensual sex, as described in a 2003 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that revoked criminal laws against gay sexual acts, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]

  1. Wait a minute.

    Prostitution is already illegal in CA?

    It's been illegal for 145 years?

    Well, that's a whole lot of corrupt cops then? And D.A.s and Judges...

    Sort of like Anchorage, Alaska, which was built on prostitution and continues to protect and defend contractual consensual sex, so much so that it barely recognizes any wife too damaged to do the work of a whole SWAT Team herself to do it all "and bring home the bacon too." Well, unless the abused wife is Law Enforcement personnell, then they do send in the Troops (with training, intercoms, guns, and stuff).

    The truth is, the whole USA just can't be bothered to interfere with what one of the parties says was consensual sex, and that's what marriage is, right? A contract for sex? In order to accommodate everyone's views on what constitutes a marriage (and this was before Gay Marriage) it was watered down to a contracct for sex. Else, how could secular courts announce that "a marriage is broken" while one of the parties is still screaming they don't want the divorce, except they know a contract for sex when they see one?

    And now, in CaliFornication itself, you're telling me that prostitution is and has been illegal, for 145 years.

    Oh, when did CA ever prosecute prostitution unless they had to use that excuse because a D.A didn't have enough evidence for the other crime they knew the perp had done?
