Belgium Parliament to Lower Age of Consent to 13


Brussels | The Belgian Federal Parliament will vote this week on a motion which could lower the legal age of sexual consent from 16 to 13 years of age.

Laurent Cassius, a member of the opposition, proposed the motion which “could free thousands of unjustly convicted prisoners” if the assembly 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 asked before the assembly Tuesday.

Some even argue that a law on the age of consent has become superfluous and should no longer exist

Outdated laws

Laws on pedophilia are outdated claims top German attorney, Hans Goldberg.

“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.

“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 Belgian law if they have performed oral or penetrative sex. 

The age of consent varies by jurisdiction across Europe and are currently set between 13 and 18.

  1. The pedophile, master be stoped!!!!

  2. thats why I dont wanna be european union CITIZEN ….EU ”system and ill law” working AGAINST HUMANITY promoting terror,murders war,child abuse and GLOBAL TYRANY!!!!!!!!!!

  3. So many comments are based on whether or not age of consent should be raised or lowered. What we are missing is the answer to one question. “Does government with their laws raise your children?” Some of you have kids (teens) hanging with friends right now, but do you know exactly where, with who, and what they are doing.

    It is the parents job to raise their kids, not the position of government. When I was young our mom knew where we were, she called to verify a kids parents were home when we went to their house. We had to check in every 30 minutes when hanging outside, when we were older it moved to every hour. Do parents do that now? From what I’ve seen they are doing It less and less.

    My youngest daughter is 15 and proud to be a virgin. Laws are in place, but most of her friends have had sex, so why hasn’t she with peer pressure etc.? Its how we parent and raised her to have a high sense of morality and self esteem. That’s what kids need more than anything. If you don’t raise kids right, then yes laws are needed because parents aren’t doing their job.
