Mexico Reduces Legal Age Of Sexual Consent To 12 Years Old
New law lowers age of consent for sex with Mexican children
Mexico has just lowered the legal age of sexual consent to just 12 years old.
This change in legislation means the country is now becoming the latest nation to give in to pressure from an international liberal network of activists determined to normalize sex with children and legalize pedophilia across the world.
Federal law in Mexico now establishes the age of 12-years as the age of legal consent.
The age at which there are no restrictions for consensual sexual activities is 18-years (sex with someone as young as 12-years-old is legal, but can be open to prosecution if deceit, force, or an abuse of authority was used).
Mexico suffered its most murderous year in memory in 2017 with 29,168 homicides as the long-term violence in Mexican society shows few signs of abating. Corruption has soared as massive acts of graft go unpunished. Now the age of consent is just 12-years, placing millions of vulnerable children in serious danger of sexual abuse, according to child protection officials.
The European Parliament in Brussels is also considering 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Laws regarding pedophilia are outdated claims top German immigration attorney, Hans Goldsberg.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 were 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 state across the USA and is currently set between 16 and 18-years-old.
The age of consent in Mexico is complex.
Typically, Mexican states have a “primary” age of consent (which is usually as low as 12), meaning a man can “seduce” a 12-year-old while operating completely within the law.
