Open Letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Urging Amendment to US Constitution that Permanently Prohibits and Imposes Ban on Paid Sexual Prostitution

The following is the text of the body of an Open Letter I wrote and sent on September 12, 2010, to U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of California and my duly elected federal lawmaker in Congress, Republican U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul of Texas. That letter from me contains a proposal that the U.S. Constitution be amended as soon as possible to impose a permanent ban on any and all sexual prostitution anywhere in or on any United States-owned or United States-governed state or island or territory. One intent of this proposed Amendment to the United States Constitution would be to nullify the currently outrageous legal system in Nevada under which paid sexual prostitution at designated houses of prostitution or brothels is legal and permitted by the government in several counties of Nevada.

Dear Democratic National Committee Officials, Republican National Committee Members, Congressman Michael McCaul, and U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi care of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C., respectively,

I am writing to each of you today in regard to my written online statement of this weekend to U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a public-policy suggestion I wrote to her at her official Congressional website.

I am hopeful that your very influential Democratic National Committee will also share with Speaker Pelosi of California the following specific reasons, among others, why the United States of today has an urgent need for a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting any and all sexual prostitution anywhere in the USA or in any U.S.-owned territory or island:

(1) The United States of America has an urgent need to promulgate a nationwide and bipartisan healthy moral vision to our own citizenry, and to the entire world, that conveys why the USA is the most freedom-loving and idealistic nation in the entire world. This type of freedom-loving and wholesome message to the entire world offers some of the best possible political "propaganda" that helps to convince people all over the world that the U.S.A. is dedicated to goodness and decency and human rights for everyone.

(2) The proposed Constitutional Amendment will delineate an eloquent reply to the ill-advised legalization of paid sexual prostitution that the European nations of Germany and The Netherlands, for instance, have chosen to authorize. There is every hope, in fact, that the proposed Constitutional Amendment will help to halt the very alarming apparent trend toward more and more nations of this planet legalizing prostitution in their own country.

(2a) The proposed Constitutional Amendment would offer a much-needed rebuke to the defiantly decadent U.S. state of Nevada, a state that has exploited women in this ruthless and injurious manner on behalf of adding "tourism dollars" to that state's economy. The crassness of Nevada's abusiveness toward women in this manner is so outrageous that it's imperative that the U.S. Congress lend its support to a Constitutional Amendment offering a resounding "NO!" to what the brutally callous state of Nevada has done.

(3) As you know, the U.S. Constitution ever since the 19th Century has contained an Amendment prohibiting slavery. A Constitutional Amendment prohibiting paid sexual prostitution anywhere on American territory would be a natural expansion upon that same very crucial human rights theme. Sexual trafficking and sexual prostitution comprise a form of enslavement of women and female youths in the 21st Century for which a new Constitutional Amendment specifically addressing that pervasively injurious societal injustice is urgently needed.
The enslavement and subjugation of women and female youths in the U.S. who are "employed" as sexual prostitutes occurs partly because the male pimp or female madam controlling those women's activities is very similar to a ruthless slave-owner. Also, many of the women and female youths who are paid sexual prostitutes were kidnapped or held hostage or subjugated by others, and were themselves either forced or unduly pressured into that illicit and degrading "career" by relatives or associates or acquaintances of theirs.

(4) A Constitutional Amendment prohibiting sexual prostitution in this country, if accompanied by a kindly empathetic and generous nationwide program to help former prostitutes achieve the transition into law-abiding and salutary and intellectually rewarding and creative lifestyles featuring gainful employment for themselves, would protect thousands of American women and female youths from the risk of their contracting cervical cancer and other forms of cancer as well. The proposed Constitutional Amendment would also help to significantly reduce the number of female Americans who each year contract the HIV virus or some other sexually transmitted disease, such as gonorrhea or syphilis or chlamydia.

(5) The Proposed new Constitutional Amendment would also help to reduce the per-capita incidence of addiction to illicit drugs and alcohol on the part of American women and American female youths. The illicit pursuit of a "career" in sexual prostitution, as you must be painfully aware, all too often spawns an addiction to illicit drugs and alcohol on the part of those women or female youths.

(6) A Constitutional Amendment prohibiting sexual prostitution in this country would make a profound statement to our entire nation, and to the entire world, that American society emphatically rejects the view of many observers that human identity is primarily sexual in nature. As each of you must be painfully aware, nationwide addiction to the pursuit of frequent and indiscriminate sexual practices (sexaholism, as it is sometimes called) all too often has gone hand in hand with a nationwide contempt toward strictly-platonic non-sexual relationships.
This contempt for platonic relationships that's all too pervasive in American society of today has all too often been accompanied by a tragically myopic and very crass genitalia-focused view of American women and American female youths, in particular. The proposed Constitutional Amendment would promulgate the very crucial message that women and female youths are not, in fact, "sex machines," and that they have every right to emphasize platonic personal relationships in their lives, including in their career-related pursuits. The human right of all women and all female youths to lead a life of complete and year-round celibacy, if they so wish, would also be strongly upheld through this proposed Constitutional Amendment.

(7) The proposed Constitutional Amendment would also promulgate the message to our entire nation, and to the entire world, that the United States Government, and the people of America, are very dedicated to a salutary and very healthful and comprehensive
re-alignment of our nation's economy. It is the type of urgently-needed re-alignment
that helps to liberate our entire nation from sexual prostitution, illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco products, for instance.

I hope that your Democratic National Committee and officials of the U.S. Department of Justice will also be willing to help urge House Speaker Pelosi to assume a leadership role in asking the U.S. Congress and the American people to approve a new Constitutional Amendment prohibiting sexual prostitution anywhere in this country.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,
