Political advance from Lower Austria – child pornography should now be called differently

No voluntary decision
“It is therefore important to me not to speak of pornography in connection with children. If adults choose to do so voluntarily, it is not a crime. Sexual abuse, violence, corruption and the recruitment of children for sexual purposes, on the other hand, are something completely different,” explains State Councilor Teschl-Hofmeister. According to her, children also suffer violence in a completely different dimension. The last few years have shown that the Internet offers a platform for the topics of violence and abuse of minors, which fuels the consumption of “child pornography”. People who satisfy their inclinations in this way accept and encourage the abuse of minors.
