Electronic Frontier Foundation "In many school districts around the country, school boards have banned the works of Twain, pulled nude paintings from the classrooms and fought against the mature discussion of reproductive health." "The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been established to help civilize the electronic frontier; to make it truly useful and beneficial not just to a technical elite, but to everyone; and to do this in a way which is in keeping with our society's highest traditions of the free and open flow of information and communication."
Feminism and Pornography "This collection of essays seeks to expand the parameters of the debate on pornography. In an effort to move away from the divisive frameworks of which side are you on and who counts as women worthy to be listened to in feminist debates on pornography, this volume seeks to open a space for divergent points of view (pro- and anti-pornography) from diverse socio-political contexts (capitalist, post-socialist, post-colonial, post-apartheid) and from a wide array of constituencies (activist, sex workers, academics) to address the complexity of sexual material."
Media Awareness Network "Toronto, November 5, 1996 The Ontario Provincial Police revealed that a 22 year-old Kirkland Lake man has been charged following a Canada-U.S. probe of pedophiles on the Internet. About 30,000 computer files of containing child pornography were taken from his home, amounting to the largest seizure of child pornography in North American history. Although the police have yet to investigate all the material taken in the raid, the computer files contain text, still photos and movies of pre-pubescent children having sexual intercourse with adults, other children, and animals."
National Center for Missing and Exploited Children "As the nation's resource center for child protection, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) spearheads national efforts to locate and recover missing children and raises public awareness about ways to prevent child abduction, molestation, and sexual exploitation. A private, nonprofit organization established in 1984, NCMEC operates under a Congressional mandate and works in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention."
National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families  "Our mission statement: To empower concerned citizens and community leaders to significantly reduce sexual exploitation and violence in America by: increasing public awareness of the availability and harm of exploitive and abusive pornography, particularly in the lives of children; supporting the enactment and enforcement, within the Constitution, of limitations on pornography ; and offering assistance to people whose lives pornography has harmed."
PedoWatch "Reducing the sexual victimization of children is our ultimate goal. We are addressing the issue of Internet child pornography, not because it offends us or because we despise pedophiles, but because there is a genuine, but difficult to prove, relationship between the distribution and social acceptance of child pornography and the incidence of sexual abuse of children."
Thunder Net This site is a home page for a Christian magazine. The current issue covers information on child pornography and abuse. "Lord, you have called us to be guardians of all children founded on your principles. Whatever our tasks as defenders of the "silent ones", we do them to serve You and our nation. We are proud to accept the responsibility of this high calling. We dedicated ourselves to our vocation, and ask for guidance and courage in aiding America's children to live free from perversion and with dignity, in safety and peace."
Up Yours Congress The CDA has been deemed unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court. This page also includes a personal opinion poll. "Congress is using a recently passed piece of legislation called The Communications Decency Act, which was wrapped in the larger Telecommunications Reform Bill, to restrict our rights. The CDA would make it illegal to make available obscene and indecent material, on the internet or other online services, to anyone under the age of 18. If convicted, a person would be subject to fines of $200,000 and up to two years in jail."
