Proposed Legislation Could Ban All Prostitution Advertising

Posted by familydynamics on March 4, 2008

Meretz MK Zehava Gal-On is set to unveil legislation Tuesday that will potentially ban all media – including promotional pamphlets and “business cards” – from advertising prostitution services and providing possible clients with access to the sex industry.

Drafted by the Hotline for Migrant Workers legal adviser Nomi Levenkron, the legislation is intended to widen the existing scope of punishment for those who advertise and promote prostitution; increase jail time from six months to three years for those found guilty of advertising sex services; and up fines meted out.

If passed, even those who place promotional material on cars, distribute provocative business cards or print leaflets advertising sex services will be made liable for prosecution. Newspapers, national and local, could also be found guilty if they run advertisements for brothels and other sex services.
