Breasts: Euro implants; banning small breasts

Amber Dorrian, Wisdom Quarterly

British women sue over French breast implants
Breast implants produced in France by PIP (Poly Implant Prothese) spell trouble and possible cancer for victims of plastic surgery disasters. Up to 30,000 French women and perhaps tens of thousands more around the world may need to have their defective breast implants removed after several suspicious cancer cases, officials said on Dec. 20, 2011.

Banning small breasts in Australia
Australia's government is "banning" adult publications and films featuring women with "small breasts," says Aussie activist Fiona Patten, on the grounds that such images encourage pedophilia. Patton, leader of the anti-censorship Australian Sex Party, is taking issue with a 2005 ruling which specified that even depictions of women who are over 18 but "appear to be" underage may be judged "illegal." Is this alleged practice a strategic way to fight child pornography, or -- as Patten maintains -- an absurd reaction to a perfectly normal female body type?
