It was a dumb ass thing to say and he rightly apologized but rather than just blindly taking something out of context, it is worth looking at the whole exchange.
Did you watch the complete exchange between the two?

the neanderthal CPC MP Arnold Viersen (Alberta - Peace River-Westlock) started his comments with the dumbazz question to NDP MP, Laurel Collins (Victoria)... asking if she ever considered being a sex worker! The only other "context", as you say, has him attempting to support the Harper Conservative Bill C-36 legislation that MacKay introduced in 2014 as Justice Minister... that, as many analysts state, actually makes it harder for sex workers to do their job safely: Evaluating Canada's Sex Work Laws: The Case for Repeal

I would suggest a new thread if you feel a need/want to support Viersen's, as you say, "context"... where, I interpret, his "strong Christian faith" doesn't allow him to accept that some women are in the work at their own volition... not forced, not coerced.
