Legalizing Prostitution??!

A pro-family activist in Canada is applauding a decision by that country's justice minister to appeal the ruling of an Ontario Judge who gutted federal prostitution laws in the province.

The Globe and Mail reports that Justice Susan Himel struck down all three Criminal Code provisions that had been challenged -- communicating for the purposes of prostitution, pimping, and operating a "common bawdy house." Himel argued the current laws endangered more than protected prostitutes.

Brian Rushfeldt, executive director of Canada Family Action, sees things a different way.

"She's in essence legalizing it as long as you do prostitution now within your home or within a brothel," he remarks. "It's atrocious to think that a judge could ever endorse prostitution, which really is an abuse and a violence against all women when it comes down to it."

Rushfeldt says as with the ongoing legal wrangling over California's marriage amendment (Proposition 8), this case demonstrates that activist judges are working both sides of the U.S.-Canada border.

"I would term it 'judicial dictatorship' -- because what these judges are doing by the rulings, whether it be in Canada or the United States, [is] overriding the elected officials; and in doing that they're overriding the will of the people," he explains. "And if that's happening, then in essence democracy is dead."
