Hello. I start this debate by telling you my side. Book banning has been going on sense the early 1900's. Books have been banned (or changed) because of political ideas, religious views, language, sex, and in one case, a cop being portrayed as a pig in a little kids book. I say let people express themselves, even if they express themselves in the ways that I have stated.

You have the burden of proof to show that all book banning is bad. I will argue that banning child porn books is a good thing.

Books with porn or graphic violence should be banned as movies with them are banned too.
