Submission + - Anti smoking ad links child sex to cigarettes (ninemsn.com.au)

Cryacin writes: Will somebody think of the children!?

Deliberately shocking anti-smoking adverts that compare nicotine addiction to sexual abuse, and which the French government has vowed to ban, has sparked a lively debate.

The ads show a man pushing a kneeling child's face towards his crotch. Two feature boys and one a girl. The children look fearfully up at him, holding in their mouth a cigarette that appears to protrude from his fly.

Under the image runs the slogan: "Smoking makes you a slave to tobacco."
