New York Advocates Say Condom Evidence Is Unhealthy
April 17, 2012
Today in Albany, advocates for sex workers plan to release a study in support of legislation that would ban the introduction of condoms as evidence in prostitution cases. According to the report, fear of having the police confiscate their condoms and use them as evidence has led some sex workers to carry fewer condoms, or none at all, and to have unprotected sex, risking transmission of STDs. Lawmakers who support bills on the issue now before the Assembly and Senate will join the advocates in presenting the study.
