Hospice Supports Prostitution

Douglas House hospice in Oxford, UK gave their support for a 22 year old patient to lose his virginity to a prostitute, The Daily Telegraph is reporting. Nick Wallis, who was born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, was supported in the decision by Sister Frances Dominica, the founder of the hospice.

"I know that some people will say 'You are a Christian foundation. What are you thinking about?' But we are here for all faiths and none," she said. "It is not our job to make moral decisions for our guests. We came to the conclusion that it was our duty of care to support Nick emotionally and to help ensure his physical safety."

Now, I might be missing something here, but when the hell does allowing someone to have sex with a prostitute constitute caring for their emotional and physical well being?
"It was not emotionally fulfilling, but the lady was very pleasant and very understanding. I do not know whether I would do it again. I would much rather find a girlfriend, but I have to be realistic."
Wallis's reflection on the encounter was predictably typical, what else would you expect from a guy who just got laid for the first time with a hooker?
