Child torture, child murder in Africa

Here some links on child torture and child murder in Africa.

Compared to this much worse moral problem, all the attention on a few child prostitutes is but moral grandstanding. Grandstanding, too, because working on the moral problem of child prostitution guarantees huge publicity and media fame with an absolute minimum of effort and danger. We all know that the media anywhere in the world loves sex topics. But if readers are presented with real moral problems, they may not have the appetite to buy a newspaper the next day. Cheap trick number 1 if anybody wants international fame on the moral front: deal with the juicy topic of child prostitution.
