  A charity has hit out at proposals to legalise child pornography in a bid to cut the number of child sex abuse cases. The proposal, by Professor Milton Diamond from the University of Hawaii, follows a study which shows that child sex crimes fell when child pornography was legalised in the Czech Republic. But child protection charity NSPCC today said the idea was 'wrong'.

  近日,一项以降低儿童性虐案件数量为目的,提倡儿童色情影片合法化的建议遭到舆论一致质疑。据悉,这项建议是由美国夏威夷大学教授Milton Diamond 经过研究后指出的,他说:“在捷克,儿童色情业得到法律的承认。有数据显示,那里的儿童性犯罪率因此下降。”与此相对,英国全国防止虐待儿童学会称儿童色情业合法化能保护儿童权益完全是胡说八道。

  Pornography was strictly prohibited in the Czech Republic between 1948 and 1989. The ban was lifted with the country's transition to democracy and, by 1990, the availability and ownership of sexually explicit materials rose dramatically. Even the possession of child pornography was not a criminal offence. Results from the Czech Republic showed that rape and other sex crimes have not increased following the legalisation and wide availability of pornography. Most significantly, the incidence of child sex abuse has fallen considerably since 1989, when child pornography became readily accessible – a phenomenon also seen in Denmark and Japan.

  据悉,捷克共和国在1948年到1989年曾经对猖獗的色情业发出警告,而随着捷克的民主化进程发展,“改革的春风”也把色情业吹进了国内,1990后捷克的色情业如雨后春笋般蓬勃兴起。不得不承认,有数据确实显示,捷克国内的犯罪数量并未曾因为该国色情业合法化而迅速增长。而更让人奇怪的是,1989年后儿童性虐案件的确呈递减的趋势,这一现象还在丹麦和日本得到证实。

  Chris Cloke, the charity's NSPCC head of child protection awareness, said: 'This obscene type of material has no part to play in our society. 'Many children suffer atrocious abuse in the making of indecent images. 'To make it legal, would suggest that inappropriate behaviour and violence towards children is acceptable. It never is and it would be quite wrong to make it legal.'

  英国全国防止虐待儿童学会的主管Chris Cloke对通过这些数据使色情业合法化的举动十分愤慨,他说:“社会绝不能容忍‘儿童色情业合法化’以任何形式出现,这个口子一旦打开,后果将不堪设想。让人误解法律一定程度上会鼓励针对儿童发生‘不适当’行为。”
