Sarah says: Prostitution is not work!

Former government Minister, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, has strongly opposed suggestions that prostitution should be legalized.

Flood-Beaubrun declared last night that prostitution is not work.

She said work is supposed to, not only put money on the table, but provide an opportunity for growth and development.

The former Minister asserted that work is also supposed to dignify a person, which prostitution does not.

She recalled that as Minister of Home Affairs she had an opportunity to read files pertaining to women who were brought here and forced to work at strip clubs.

“Some of them are forced to work at these clubs to pay off debts to the people who brought them in because even without foreknowledge, they are told they have to work to pay the air fare or the rent,” Flood-Beaubrun said.

The former Castries Central MP disclosed that when the women get here, sometimes their passports are taken from them.

“They are denied essential things that they need,” she told Host – Timothy Poleon, during Newsmaker Live last night on DBS Television.

Flood-Beaubrun disclosed that some of the women were brought here expecting to do domestic work.

She asserted that human trafficking is a very serious issue, aptly described as modern day slavery.

She declared that in prostitution, it is the pimp, the person who trafficked the women, that profits from the exploitation of the females.

“A lot of people calling for the legalization of prostitution are not thinking about the needs of those women,” Flood-Beaubrun said.

The former Minister spoke of the need to create more opportunities for women to be gainfully employed.

“It is possible,” she asserted.

    Tell them Sarah. You will not get that kind of hard talk from Alvina and Emma. They looking for votes not the interest of women folk.

    What did Emma and Alvina as cabinet ministers do towards the abuse of women and children. They sat and watch our justice system collapse. Soft women they are.

    We need champion women like Sarah. She had her convictions And stood up to kenny. Sacrificed her ministerial position and parliamentary position for what she stood for.
    The power of that woman

    Sarah
    You saw the files and what did you do both in and out of political office. You could have stayed on and formed a group and champion the cause of these helpless women. You disappeared in Brooklyn and now you resurface and even wanted to be leader of a party you fought so hard against? Why do they trust you – can’t they see through your dirty agenda?
