Do you have the right to drive a stolen vehicle, just because you didn't steal it? No. Why? Because you cannot claim legal title to the vehicle.
Liberty is the concept of owning legal title to one's self. Did the child in the pornography grant legal title to those pictures? Of course not, since such a grant would constitute a contract - which minors are not able to enter into. As such, a person in possession of child pornography is in possession of stolen material. And since it is KNOWN stolen material, they are KNOWN to have violated the rights of another.
And that doesn't even touch upon the distribution of such material.
