AFF has been reporting for years that international surveys from the International Court of Justice at the Hague, Interpol, our own Institute of Criminology, the Home Office in London, the Japanese Foreign Ministry and others have placed Australia #1 on the world’s list for rape.
On 29/3/06 a new report was released from an international group called the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD). “Australians are more likely than people in any other developed nation to find themselves a victim of a serious crime, including sex crimes.” Between 1990 and the latest figures available this report showed that Aussies are more likely to be sexually assaulted and violently assaulted than in any other developed country! This is an international disgrace and must be reversed. Reduction in pornography equals a reduction in rape. The New Scientist had a cover story entitled “The Power of Pornography” and found that a 2 percent increase in porn equalled a 1 per cent increase in rape. Likewise they cited studies where a reduction in porn equalled a reduction in rape. Even a restriction in the way pornographic magazines were displayed resulted in a reduced rape rate.
ACTION: Take the actions we list in this AFF Journal, don’t listen to the well-paid apologists from the porn industry who insist no one is influenced by what they see, and watch Australia become a safer and more porn free place to raise Australian children.
