CWA Helps Sponsor Briefing on the Harms of Pornography

WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- The Coalition for the War on Illegal Pornography today announced a major briefing at the United States Capitol Visitors Center in HVC-201 at 11 a.m., June 15, titled "Pornography Harms: What Congress can do to Enforce Existing Laws."

Concerned Women for America (CWA) is proud to be a sponsor of this event, which is open to every Member of the U.S. House and Senate, their staffs, the Capitol press corps, and the public.

Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, Senior Fellow at CWA's Beverly LaHaye Institute, said, "This briefing focuses on the harms of pornography. While obscenity laws are on the books, they are not being enforced, and the pornography industry is rapidly expanding as a result. Pornography has moved out of the sleazy dives into our homes through 24-hour-a-day, easy Internet access. The data shows that porn has taken over much of the nation's entertainment; it is addictive, it's pervasive, and it's harmful."

Crouse continued, "Americans rent 800 million pornographic videos every year - that's one-in-five of all video rentals. The pornography industry produces 11,000 new porn movies annually - far more than Hollywood's annual output of 400 mainstream movies. An all-star list of speakers will detail the ways that pornography harms those who become addicted, as well as the ways that it is destructive to those girls and women who are used to produce the obscene materials."

About The D.C. Group on Pornography
The Coalition for War on Illegal Pornography is an effort by The D.C. Group on Pornography, a group of national organizations which meet quarterly in Washington, D.C., for the purpose of education, strategic planning, and action. The group has met with the Department of Justice on several occasions, asking that federal laws prohibiting interstate transportation of adult obscene pornography be enforced.
