Petition: Make Internet Pornography an Opt-in Feature Only
Today, children are exposed to pornography more than ever before. With the acceptance of Internet capable devices in nearly ever part of life, comes the vulnerability and exposure to harmful material. Internet pornography has proliferated on the Internet in an unimaginable rate with statistics sharing that 30% of the Internet is now pornography. By 2017, a quarter of a billion people are expected to be accessing mobile adult content from their phones or tablets, an increase of more than 30% from 2013. Though illegal according to federal law, pornographic websites still grow and spread their influence. Porn sites get more visitors each month than Netflix, Amazon And Twitter combined.
There are many ways to combat this major issue, and our organization does so by creating education material for children, getting schools and libraries to filter pornography, and encouraging law-makers to enforce current pornography laws. But the most effective way to obstruct the transmission of Internet pornography, and protect children and anyone from unwanted exposure, is by the help of Internet service providers. Sign this petition in favor of Internet service providers creating a filtered service options for customers, blocking pornography through in-network filtering by default, or making pornography an opt-in feature only. We will continue to urge law-makers and Internet service providers to get this solution applied.
