Confession must not protect paedophiles

I CANNOT understand how canon law can be upheld when it comes to the abuse of children. Surely any law that protects the paedophile to the depredation of the child is a law that needs to be changed without delay.

As for the so-called seal of the confession, there must never ever be a seal on any law when it comes to the abuse of children.
