CONCORD - N.H. State Representative Elizabeth Edwards, D-Hillsborough, is sponsoring a bill that would remove the criminal penalty for prostitution among adults if it is consensual.
The 2016 bill does not provide for regulation or licensing of prostitution, however.
Prostitution has come up several times in the past year after a Manchester sting netted 10 arrests - including the arrests of some political figures - and after the mother of Eve Tarmey was accused of prostituting out of the room where the Rochester eventually died in.
The argument for some is that if it's consensual, people should be able to make their own decisions - while others say it opens to door for more sex crimes, human rights violations and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
What do you think? How should New Hampshire be handling prostitution. Let us know in the comments below.
