Could in terms of maybe not?

Of course the could is really will-be.

It has never been a question of “if” for quite sometime in the good old United States of America as the Court system has squashed every decent, moral and righteous boundary with every bench opinion.

  • “Still, the issue has crept into the Democratic Party’s nascent presidential campaign: In late February, Senator Kamala Harris of California became the first candidate to endorse some manner of decriminalization, an idea also floated by another contender, the former Colorado governor, John Hickenlooper.” ⟦Could Prostitution Be Next to Be Decriminalized? – The New York Times⟧

  • “Supporters of decriminalization see their efforts as part of a larger, decades-long liberalization of American mores, like lifting Sunday bans on selling alcohol and legalizing marijuana. They also frame the issue as an act of harm-reduction for prostitutes and a tacit admission that modern law enforcement and age-old moral indignation has done little to stem the practice.” ⟦Could Prostitution Be Next to Be Decriminalized? – The New York Times⟧
