Kamala Harris supports decriminalizing sex work

Kamala Harris has voiced support for decriminalizing sex work, but her voting record on the issue does not support that.

Previous presidential candidate and the current Democratic VP nominee, Kamala Harris, declared her support for decriminalizing sex work. Her new position and support for decriminalizing sex work have been criticized because it deviates from her previous stance on the issue. In 2008, she argued that the proposition of decriminalizing sex workers was completely ridiculous. As the attorney general of California and Senator, Harris failed to investigate a group of police officers who trafficked a young sex worker. As a senator, she supported the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, which, according to sex trafficking survivors and sex workers, would do more harm than good to them.

Therefore, it is true that Kamala Harris has since changed her stance and declared her support for decriminalizing sex work, but her actions in the past suggest otherwise.
