Don't raise age of consent

Published: Monday | November 12, 2012 Comments 0

THE EDITOR, Sir:

In the media, there are ill-advised calls to move the age of consent to 18. That arbitrary figure is inconsistent with natural law and will only increase crimes by our children, who are supposed to be our future, thus creating an increasing number of adults with criminal records and attendant social and economic problems.
