Child pornography's potential to incite viewers to abuse children is sometimes used as an argument for banning production, distribution, and possession of child pornography. In Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, the Court characterized this rationale as a forbidden attempt to "constitutionally premise legislation on the desirability of controlling a person's private thoughts."
