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Outdated laws

Laws on pedophilia are outdated claims top German attorney, Hans Goldberg.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. Why is everyone following this topic…hmm..makes me wonder!

  2. Can they DRINK?
    Can they VOTE?
    Can a 12 year old DRIVE?
    Should they be out living out of their parents house?

    erm.. seemes a bit young. We don’t even know if the young lady has had a visit from the ‘angry fairy’ yet. 16 is fine. 16 is good.. in fact.. 18 is too long, in Scotland.. you can vote have sex get married at 16 .. its our adulthood. 13 is to young.. even medically .. and adult man could in fact permanently injure a young girl. I support the idea that God made our biology.. and I wouldn’t dare correct Him. Each young woman is individually biologically set by God.. but since we are Human and need laws to protect our people. 16 is fine.

  5. The pedophiles must, have to be STOPPED!!!!
