America to ban 'vile' child sex robots that encourage paedophilia; Lawmakers say the robots 'normalize sex between adults and minors'.

Byline: Jeff Parsons

US lawmakers have approved a bill to ban "vile" sex robots designed to look like children as young as three in an effort to fight paedophilia.

The horrendous creations are being flogged online to customers in the US from sellers in China and Japan.

They are labelled as mannequins or models to avoid detection, according to a US Congressman.

Known as the CREEPER Act, the bill will now move to the Senate to be approved before being passed to the president to sign it into law.

'CREEPER' is an acronym for 'Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots Act.'

"Once an abuser tires of practicing on a doll, it's a small step to move on to a child,' wrote Congressman Dan Donovan, one of the authors of the bill.

"It's a uniquely vile person who preys on children to fulfill horrific pedophilic urges. During my 20 years as a prosecutor, I put away animals who played out their disgusting fantasies on innocent children. What I saw and heard was enough to make anybody sick.

"Now, as a legislator in Congress, I'm introducing a bill to ban the newest outlet for pedophiles: child sex dolls. They don't belong in our communities," he said.
