Child Pornography: A Comparative Analysis
Abstract: Protecting children is extremely important due to the way societal norms are changing. Given the fact, that children cannot assess the wrong and right path by their own selves, the modern technology can trap them into something serious and irreparable. A child, being defenseless, can go through serious torture both mentally and physically, if he falls prey to the ordeal of child abuse. Child sexual abuse is an international epidemic and no single jurisdiction can be held liable for its rapid growth, alone. Child Pornography is pernicious part of child abuse which is aimed at scarring children in every way possible. The trauma of this abhorrent crime has made its roots strong and it is pivotal to address the problem in a proper manner. The criminal justice systems, holding strong on the outside reflect negligible results due to shortcomings of interpretations and inconsistency with parallel enactments. This essay aims at defining the problem of child pornography and discussing its predicament in three jurisdictions, namely, USA, UK and India by comparing their respective frameworks and interpretation of enactments.
