Poland backs stricter pedophilia law after Church documentary evokes outcry

Poland announced plans on Tuesday to tighten sentences for child sex abuse. This comes days after the country’s politics were upended by a documentary on pedophilia in the Catholic Church, closely allied to the ruling party. The documentary shows Poles confronting priests they said abused them as children. The revised laws would increase prison terms for pedophilia to up to 30 years.

While I am glad that they are doing something to tackle this horrendous crime. Why did it take a documentary to force said change? it wasn't a secret.
