Definitional and Ethical Issues in Child Sexual Abuse
Pages 24

This chapter will examine two questions: (1) What is meant by the phrase, "child sexual abuse"?, and (2) What is the moral status of adultchild sexual contact? The reader should be advised at the outset that no conclusive answers are provided. Rather, the chapter provides outlines of the subproblems associated with these questions and explicates the reasons why these questions cannot be definitively answered.
