Anti-Pornography Web Site Launches
Special Report - February 19, 2010
Pro-family advocates now have a new weapon in their fight against pornography with the launch of a new web site dedicated to educating the public about its detrimental effects on individuals, families, and society. Created by Patrick Truemanformer chief of the U.S. Department of Justice Child Exploitation and Obscenity Sectionthe web site, http://pornharms.com, is intended to “provide ready access to credible, peer-reviewed research documenting” the harms of pornography, including the latest peer-reviewed research. Trueman, an attorney based in Virginia, collected the information, along with a group of professionals and concerned volunteers. Within 24 hours of its launch on February 17, Trueman reports that the web site received 2,000 visits from every state and 39 countries.
“Since the advent of the internet, pornography has flooded homes, businesses, public libraries, and even schools,” Trueman said in a press release. “The results have been devastating to the social and family fabric of America.”
“Pornography is a neglected pandemic and it will remain so until knowledge of its destructive forces is widely understood and disseminated,” he added. “Pornography Harms, http://pornharms.com, is a one-stop location for sound research, news articles and opinion pieces demonstrating the harm from pornography.”
