Sign the Petition: U.S. Needs an Age-Verification Law

Posted: 01-03-20

"It’s been since the late ’90s since Congress passed a large-scale solution to a child’s instant access to pornography. More than 20 years later, children are accessing pornography more than ever before and with hardly any restraint. Technology has never been in a place like it is today to make online pornography difficult to reach for a child. It is time that Congress passes a new law regulating the porn industry. Sign the petition and tell Washington, it’s time for a new law to protect children from the harms of pornography."

MCAP Calls for Action: Pornography is a Public Health Crisis

Porn websites now constitute 30% of all web traffic.  It has the same effect on the brain as drugs and most children are now exposed to pornography before they even reach puberty.  Pornography objectifies women and creates unrealistic expectations for relationships, acting as a twisted form of sex education. Viewing it is linked to an increase in sexual violence and a decrease in empathy and self esteem among viewers. The porn epidemic has been called "the largest unregulated social experiment in human history" (Hughes 2014).
MCAP is asking our Maryland legislators for this resolution as a call to action, stating that this problem has become more than any individual or family can combat on their own. We need our legislative bodies, educational institutions, private businesses and community members to educate, prevent, and treat this growing pandemic. A resolution does not change existing laws, but it does create a foundation on which to build changes in attitudes and policies. Please sign this petition!  Start the conversation in your community and in your home. Pornography is creating a public health crisis. An online version of this petition is here.   Post it on your Facebook account, help us spread the word, mention it to your legislators. We are seeking sponsors.
