TORONTO, Ont. Oct. 7, 2009 – The Catholic Civil Rights League, Christian Legal Fellowship and REAL Women of Canada have filed their factum in the court challenge to Canada’s prostitution laws. Their arguments emphasize the shared morality of Canadians, and point out that more than 80 per cent of Canadians claim affiliation to Christianity, Judaism, Islam or Hinduism, all of which consider prostitution immoral. The factum, which is scheduled to be read in court Oct. 19, discusses the harm prostitution causes to individuals, family and children, particularly those forced to engage in it, the importance of retaining a legal mechanism for addressing that harm, and the broader implications that legalization would have for society.
