One of my favorite quotes from Simone de Beauvoir is "Perhaps it is permissible to dream of a future when men will know no other use of their freedom than this free unfurling of itself." I believe that everyone has the right to personal freedom, so long as it does not interfere with the personal freedom of others. By stopping the cycle of sex trafficking and incarceration, we are pulling the snake's tail out of its own mouth at two seperate points. We keep prisoners from continuing the behavior that got them to where they are--being oppressed by a system made to dehumanize them--as well as keeping those same prisoners from carrying out their own unfettered will on their victims.
