Should prostitution be legalised?

I often wonder should the government simply legalise prostitution in the country.

The reason being the high number of rape and incest cases which we read about almost everyday.

Some of these cases are shocking where a father repeatedly rapes his daughter and other horrifying incidents.

I believe such cases would see a decline if men were simply free to visit prostitutes to satisfy their lust.

I know some religions may consider this immoral, but don't you think it is better than raping women?

Of late, I have read so many cases of rape in the papers, almost an average of three each day.

And sadly, these are only cases which go reported. I am sure there are many more that are not reported.
