" The ANAR Foundation is a Spanish organization which helps kids in risk. They Operate a unique phone number - 116 111 - where minors at risk can get aid and consultation.

and part 3
). Is this what happens when we have to protect everyone from anything remotely racy? Do you agree with the decision to pull them off the air?
