Yachimovich praise anti-prostitution law as 'historical' step

Zionist Union MK Shelly Yachimovich praised the Knesset's passage Monday of a law criminalizing the hiring of prostitutes.
"The war on prostitution resembles the war against slavery and the emancipation of slaves - no less," she said. "At the beginning it was considered radical to call to make hiring prostitutes illegal, but at the end of the day we have made this law, which is without a doubt an important and historical step."
