Moral censorship is the removal of materials that are obscene or otherwise morally questionable. Pornography, for example, is often censored under this rationale, especially child pornography, which is censored in most jurisdictions in the world.

One of the earliest defenses of moral censorship is to be found in Book II of Plato's Republic.
