Preventing children from watching porn infringes on their human rights – UNICEF

An article published by UNICEF has it that preventing children from watching porn may violate the child’s human rights based on extensive on extensive interpretation of the international covenant on civil and political rights. But most anti – porn organisations hold a divergent view on the matter. Some have totally disagree with UNICEF’S data because according to them, it overlooks the harms of pornograohy to little children.

But Lisa Thompson, Vice President and director of the Research Institute at the the National Center in Sexual Exploitation revealed that UNICEF’S report ignores the vast body of research.

‘Mainstream pornography contains horrific sexual abuse, rape, incest, racism. All of which children should not consume. UNICEF’S milquetoast assessment of the impacts hardcore pornography on the children does nothing to challenge the political narrative that pornography is benign, and as a result, puts children in harm’s way’ she said

The report based its conclusions on European study of 19EU countries. According to the the report, 39%of Spanish children were happy after seeing it.

But hours after the publication, it was taken down by UNICEF
