Let's Fight This Terrible Crime Against Our Children
(Parade Magazine, February 19, 2006)
"No child is capable, emotionally or legally, of consenting to being photographed for sexual purposes. Thus, every image of a sexually displayed child—be it a photograph, a tape or a DVD—records both the rape of the child and an act against humanity."

If We Really Want to Protect Children
(Parade Magazine, November 1996)

You Carry the Cure In Your Own Heart

If You Could Listen to a Child's Soul by Andrew Vachss

Today's Victim Could Be Tomorrow's Predator

(Parade Magazine, October 13, 1985)
"The child who asks, 'Are you going to hurt me too?' is really speaking to all of us—to society at large. And if we face the hard realities, the truthful answer may well be 'yes.'"
