New law on teenage sex 'will make criminals of young girls'

The law is being changed in Scotland criminalizing consensual sexual conduct between children ages 13-15. The current law punishes only boys who have consensual sex with a girl ages 13 to 15 of similar age. Opponents of the change argue that the criminalization will not have an effect in the reduction of sexual activity in teens and will in fact punish those who seek medical advice.
