23. Fundamental principle: Who has sovereignty of the body?

The state or the individual? That is the fundamental question that confronts us. The progressive march of history is for rights to be held by the individual and not the state or church. This is no different and is the real right we are fighting for, even though the 'fronts' are the draft, euthanasia, gay rights, freedom of consenting adults, drug use, abortion rights, and yes prostitution.

If we focus on the principle - the right of self determination for one's own body, then the answers become clear.
