WASHINGTON, D.C.—We were probably too sidetracked (and elated) by President Obama’s speech on April 3 denouncing the Republican Party and its presidential candidates for their “cruelty and extremism” and their attempts to impose on the country a “radical vision” that “is antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity” to notice that the following day, Morality in Media (MiM) president Patrick Trueman had delivered 5,000 or so letters to Congress calling for “a Congressional hearing in either or both the Committee on the Judiciary and Committee on Energy and Commerce” to “explore the true harms of pornography” by “bringing together leading medical professionals and researchers on the subject,” a hearing that Trueman described as “now vitally necessary.

“We also know that consumption of adult pornography leads many consumers to harder and more deviant material over time,” Trueman added in a fundraising letter to supporters, “and even leads many to consume child pornography, contributing to the widespread and increasing problem of child pornography distribution in America. Children are also too often targeted by the pornography industry through free distribution of illegal hardcore Internet offerings, leading many child consumers into sexual exploitive behaviors and life-long accompanying problems.”
