As a result, street prostitution, and sex trafficking have decreased.

  • NAMBLA organization (North American Man/Boy Love Association)

    The Constitution was ratified in 1788. The purpose of the First Amendment was to defend the freedom of the American people, and to grant the freedom of expression. But, it was NEVER meant to be used to take another human’s freedom, to use it as an example to bully and attach someone, or to exploit other human beings for one’s own benefit.  For example, the NAMBLA organization (North American Man/Boy Love Association) is an organization that advocates pedophilia OPENLY. Is this what the Constitution intended? Absolutely not. And NAMBLA is not the only organization of its kind. There are hundreds of organizations around the world that advocate pedophilia. Some of these organizations have been “laying low” to avoid further investigation, but they are very public, and anyone can become a member.
