The U.S. Supreme Court scored a victory for perverts everywhere in its recent decision to strike down the Child Pornography Prevention Act.
The 1996 law – which made illegal any visualization of minors participating in sexual activity, including the depiction of underage characters by adult actors – was challenged by advocates of the adult entertainment industry along with other photographers, filmmakers and the like, who feared their First Amendment rights were being threatened. The San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in their favor, and the subsequent appeal by the U.S. Justice Department was denied by the Supreme Court in its 6-3 ruling, according to a Los Angeles Times story.
In effect, the Supreme Court’s decision allows for the continued proliferation of computer-generated pornographic images of children to satisfy the sickening sexual urges of pedophiles.
The Ninth Circuit Court

In a 6-3 vote, the court declared the 1996 law unconstitutional.
