STOP PUNISHING POSSESSION OF CONDOMS!!!

125 Signatures Goal: 100

STOP PUNISHING POSSESSION OF CONDOMS! We, the undersigned, encourage you to support the No Condoms as Evidence Bill (A3856, S1289). This bill would stop police and prosecutors from using possession of condoms as evidence that people engaged -or intended to engage - in prostitution. Currently, police and courts can use the fact that a person has or is carrying condoms against them in court to prove that they are engaging in criminal activity. Sex workers report that they are more likely to be arrested if they carry condoms, and that sex work venues are more likely to be raided if there are condoms on the premises. Police officers regularly confiscate condoms from people they allege are engaged in prostitution to use as evidence against them at trial. As a result people are hesitant to carry condoms to protect themselves and others for fear that it will lead to arrest or be held against them in court. Sound public health policy would encourage condom use by eliminating the fear that carrying a condom will be used against you by police or in a court of law. Please support the No Condoms as Evidence Bill (A3856, S1289)!
