National Council for Civil Liberties (now LIberty)
campaigned to decriminalise paedophilia
I have just been taking a look at this PIE organisation, and found it was affiliated with the NCCL, now known as the charity Liberty which campaigns for human freedoms! Though apparently not for children, only adults.
Here is what Wikipedia says…..
In 1976, the NCCL in a submission to the Criminal Law Revision Committee of the British Parliament argued that “Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage… The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all cases of paedophilia result in lasting damage”. Organisations such as Paedophile Information Exchange (P.I.E.), a pro-paedophile activist group, and Paedophile Action for Liberation became affiliated to the pressure group. These groups were later excluded from the organisation.
