Sex Worker Policy

Australian Christians Sex Worker Policy

Australian Christians protects the value and dignity of every person, male and female. It declares that prostitution is a modern form of slavery and exploitation.

There is no such thing as a safe environment for prostitution; it breaks all the normal occupational health and safety requirements that are applied to other industries.

We also support the provision of safe exit strategies for those currently involved in prostitution. We support the development of legislation based on the Nordic Model where those who use prostitutes are prosecuted, thus discouraging men from harassing women in the street.   Legalising brothels only increases the demand for sex and therefore the number of prostitutes in this dangerous trade. Our policy is based on a desire to support families structure and ensuring that marriage, and women in particular, are not harmed by prostitution.

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
