AUS: Should child sex offenders be allowed to travel?

Australia has passed tough, “world-first” legislation that will deny passports to about 20,000 people on the national child sex offenders register. The aim is to stop Australians who are planning to abuse children in regions like South East Asia before they even get on a plane. But how will it work, is it fair and will other countries follow suit? Full Article

    Despite the insistence of certain individuals it is not possible to prove an assumption that someone has the intention of going somewhere exclusively for the specific reason(s) assumed. Prohibiting travel based on a belief that such travel will include at minimum disagreeable conduct should not ever be a valid justification for banning travel. Additionally while focusing on those who have convictions might seem like good policy, it is not. For each person with a conviction being forbidden from traveling at least one other person with far worse goals travels from place to place. If a society wanted to outright prevent future offenses it would focus on stopping potential perpetrators and victims from ever becoming perpetrators or victims.

    They should stop with the epithet of calling someone on the registry “sex offender, violent sexual predator, pedophile, etc ” which creates stigma on registrants that are real human beings that have paid their dues to society.
