A new anti-pornography law is up for debate in Uganda.

It would impose bans on what can be shown on TV and in the movies in the African nation.

The law would also limit what women can wear.

If it is passed, wearing a mini-skirt would become a crime.

The ban was proposed by Uganda's ethics minister, a former Catholic priest.

He says 90-percent of the parliament is on his side, but the public is somewhat divided.

"Mini-skirt" is being defined as any skirt with a hem above the knee.

Violators would face thousands of dollars in fines and up to 15-years in jail.
