New full-body scan technology is already facing opposition in Britain.
Thanks to some guy who shoved a bomb down his pants and boarded a plane on Christmas Day, Americans will soon have to subject themselves to full-body scans. The cutting-edge security measure produces digital images that can see through clothes. Kind of like a virtual strip-search.
The images are unflattering, grainy, and well, kind of creepy, and are already raising questions about decency in England. Child pornography laws in Britain currently make using body scanners on anyone under 18 illegal. Terri Dowty of civil rights group Action on Rights for Children believes the scans transgress child protection laws, which make it illegal to create an indecent image or a "pseudo-image" of a child.
Do you think body scans are inappropriate for children?
