Payment For Sex Banned In France, Prostitutes Protest

Prostitutes protest in France as they say that their livelihood is under threat from new legislation. The lower house passed new legislation banning potential clients paying for sex, it is meant to make life tougher for human traffickers, but sex workers say that it is taking away their means of paying their social taxes or bills. The new law will target those seeking to pay for the service, but it will no longer punish the act of soliciting.
