The European Parliament will vote this week on a motion which could lower the legal age of sexual consent from 16 to 13 years of age across the European Union.
Laurent Henry proposed the motion which “could free thousands of unjustly convicted prisoners” if the parliament decides to pass it.
“Our prisons are filled with young men that have been robbed of their youth, condemned to rot in jail for an act that should not be a crime. Why are we denying these young men the chance to play a more positive role in modern society?”, he said before the assembly Tuesday.
“Some even argue that a law on the age of consent has become superfluous and should no longer exist.”
Laws on pedophilia are outdated claims top German immigration attorney, Hans Goldsberg.
“There will be the need for a consolidation of national laws under the current European system on the legal aspects of sex. Most of these national rulings don’t represent the modern social complexities of our times and are legally baseless. Some even argue that a law on the age of consent has become superfluous and should no longer exist,” claims the lawyer who has worked for more than 35 years in his field of work.
Support for the European motion also exists in the United States.
“Just think about how 2,000 years ago the Greeks were a much more open society. We must remember that love between a man and a boy where not as taboo as today,” explains cultural anthropologist, Thomas Black, from the University of Michigan.
Adults who have sex with underage children now face from two to six years in prison and up to 12 years according to current European law if they have performed oral or penetrative sex.
Currently the age of consent varies by jurisdiction across Europe and is currently set between 14 and 18.
