ABA Panel Decision Legal Brothels Urged . ^^ ^ . . . itX' -· · · ····· CHICAGO (AP) -- Laws g a i n s t prostitution are i a t' a n 11 y discriminatory gainst women, invade individ- al privacy and should be ropped from state books, a ommittee of the American Bar \ssociatiori recommends. The recommendation .is in' a eport that calls for the adop- ion of a resolution which urges tales to "repeal all laws which lassify as criminal prostitution jr solicitation by or on behalf f a prostitute." The resolution is to be considered by the ABA's House of Delegates at its annual meeting n August. Approval of the reso- ution by the full House and the ABA's Board of .Governors will irovide guidance to state bars ind other lobbying groups be- 'ore state legislatures. The committee says there is no reason for a state to outlaw 'commercial sex." "Whether a person chooses to engage in sexual intercourse matter of individual choice, the report at a meeting of its 20 members in May. A primary reason for the committee's action was the discriminatory nature of statutes outlawing prostitution. "In accordance with society's double standard of sexual morality, the woman who sells her body,is.punished criminally and stigmatized socially while male customer, either by not for governmental inter- 'erence," the report states. Decriminalization could lead to a reduction of crime associated with protitution, it says. Carole Bellows, a Chicago lawyer and vice chairman of the committee that approved the resolution, said the rise of the . liberated woman, expanding notions ahout the right of privacy and 'a growing concern about so-called victimless crimes contributed to the committee's unanimous approval of her the explicit design of the statute or hrough a pattern of discriminatory enforcement, is left unscathed," the report slates. It says that in most slates the law ignores the fact that male homosexuals can be prostitutes and "more importantly, tha male customers, without whom prostitution would be impos sible, are accomplices in this so-called criminal act." It also' calls for the deer iminalization of solicitation tc prostitution, saying such a lav discriminates against poor an minority women who must op erate in the streets in contras to call girls who operate out o plush hotel suites. The report was approved _, the ABA's Section ot Individua Rights and Responsbilitics headed by Albert E. Jenner Jr . Chicago lawyer now serving a counsel to the House Judiciar ommillee considering articles Impeachment. Jenner was chairman of the iceting in May and did no ote on the resolution, said liss Bellows.
