Anti-Porn Campaign Highlights Harm to Kids

It's the second week of Morality in Media's month-long "Be Aware: Porn Harms" National Awareness Campaign. This week, the group is holding events that focus on how pornography harms children.

"Many children are getting addicted to pornography because U.S. pornographers are providing free, obscene, illegal porn to kids online. Sadly, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to enforce federal obscenity laws which would protect children," says Patrick Trueman, president of Morality in Media. "The average age in which children first view pornographic material is 11 years old and for many it is earlier."

Each week of the campaign emphasizes a specific way pornography proves itself to be detrimental: pornography addiction, harms to children, links to sex trafficking and violence against women, respectively.

"This week's events focus on one of the most disturbing aspects of pornography," says Dawn Hawkins, Morality in Media's executive director and director of the Be Aware: PORN HARMS campaign. "Many child pornographers start with an interest in soft-core adult pornography, but over time turn to harder, more deviant porn and this leads the way to child pornography and molestation."
