Courageous state representative Elizabeth Edwards in New Hampshire has put forth a bill HB-1614 to decriminalize adult consensual prostitution!

Activists representing several sex worker orgs were present. , Bella Robinson of COYOTE Rhode Island and ESPLERP (Erotic Service Providers Legal Education and Research Project) and Phoebe Jones from the Global Women’s Strike and Rachel West from the US prostitutes collective, took questions from the press and government officials present. This clip features Bella Robinson, long time erotic service provider and activist.

First-Ever Bill to Repeal Prohibition On Prostitution – Hearing and Press Conference

Published on Jan 30, 2016

Elizabeth Edwards is a Free State Project early mover and elected democrat state representative who has heroically put forth the only proposed repeal of the prohibition on prostitution

Senator Elizabeth Edwards testimony during the house vote on HB-1614. This is the entire testimony and vote presented on March 10, 2016 during the house session. There were some interesting developments regarding this bill as Edwards points out at the beginning of her testimony. An unorthodox meeting had to be held after documents of a previous vote had been lost. A video record and photograph of the document was not accepted by the committee as evidence of the previous meeting. She notes resistance to the bill by the majority whip before any evidence or testimony had been presented and states “evidence should proceed conclusions”. Despite all of this- one could say that the bill almost made it thru, losing by only 7 votes. There were 145 who would have passed it, 152 were against it. That is not a landslide loss by any stretch and is a good sign that with another round and more work, NH could be one of the first states to decriminalize thru a house bill.

We are very grateful to the Senators who carried and supported this bill. It is a courageous and compassionate action.
