Drug legalization is slowly making progress, next up: sex work:

Paper by Scott Cunningham, Gregory DeAngelo, John Tripp:

Between 2002 and 2010, Craigslist provided an “erotic services” section on its front page which was used almost exclusively by prostitutes to advertise illegal sex services. The company opened this service in different cities at different points in time. We use a differences-in-differences strategy to identify its causal effect on female safety and find that Craigslist erotic services reduced the female homicide rate by 17.4 percent.

That’s 17.4% across the entire female population, not just prostitutes. Government enforced morality laws kill people, exhibit B.
