What exactly does this mean? I don’t agree with criminalizing child porn drawings.
The government would be able to arrest and jail anyone who creates or processes drawings/illustrations that might be interpreted as depicting a
How a human being, especially an American, can read this law and not be absolutely livid is beyond me. Where's the outrage? Artists? Animators?
If I draw stick figures and scribble ages underneath I'll have to turn myself in. Welcome to 1984.

OK so this would mean any image of a child, any illustration...!! That is exactly what it will be, cause that is what it specifically states..
"VISUAL ILLUSTRATIONs"...!! This could literally mean any image at all..!!
Can't take pics of your kids enjoying a day at the beach, can't take pics of your kids in the school concert, cant take pics of your child’s first
steps... Hell, no more children in the movies either..lol You'd be pushing child porn..!!!
So who writes these bills...? Mostly old middle aged busybodies from the bible group, who've never even had kids because they too frigid to take
their clothes off to make them,...lol
This is why the separation of church and state is more important now than ever before. Imagine what a Rick Perry type could do if he attains influence
and power. People will be burning on stakes on the White House lawn in no time.
As for the other laws addressed in this bill, do we really want more of the same? Right now we’re sending teenagers to jail and labeling them as
lifetime sex offenders for taking photos of themselves, for having a girlfriend/boyfriend that’s a matter of days younger/older, for innocent pranks
that harm nobody, etc.
Meanwhile, it’s the government that refuses to deal with bullying and harassment in schools. It’s the government that says it’s OK to literally
beat children. If you read the news you’ll see stories all the time where it’s the government that’s sexually harassing and abusing children.
Whenever there's a law that's pandered to the public as 'for the children' I know it's a ruse to that will ultimately harm children and further
infringe on our basic freedoms.
