    Child porn is a little more serious than violation of intellectual property law.

    If anyone/anything is to be banned, its those who delight in child porn, those sick minds which MAY need to be cleansed. The purveyors of porn are only filling a need.
    Banned? no, this is an artificial thing.

    I agree. But you still need some logical basis on which to base a law.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Child porn is only child porn when there is an actual child involved. Anything else is not child porn. Real child porn can be illegal as it has infringed upon the rights of an actual person.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What if it's an adult whose body has been manipulated to appear younger? Also, what if the child was never aware that their face had been used? You can't be humiliated over things you never know.

    Couldn't CGI fall into that category if that image happens to like a certian child?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    We dont prosecute people for doing that to adults.

    You may be able to make a case for it being copyright infringement, especially if you take a professional photograph (say out of a magazine) and photoshop it. However if you just take a picture of someone in public, there's no expectation of privacy so you cant really make that case.

    The fact that it promotes the abuse and exploitation of children is logical enough for me.

    I think it pertains only to depiction of actual children.
