Pfeiffer And Bates Call For The Legalisation Of Prostitution

MICHELLE PFEIFFER and KATHY BATES are calling for prostitution to be legalised in the U.S. after playing historical hookers in a new period movie.
The duo portrays 1920s French courtesans in director Stephen Frears' new film Cheri, and the risque subject matter has prompted them both to question why the 'world's oldest profession' has been banned throughout most of their native America.
Pfeiffer says, "There is an argument to be made for providing some protection for prostitutes. It would solve a lot of problems for them. They're going to do it anyway."
Her co-star Bates agrees: "For health reasons, it would be better for people to enjoy those pleasures."
