Penny Nance: Fight Against Sex Trafficking and Child Porn Could be Hurt by Change to Internet

By | Culture, News and Events, Sex Trafficking / Pornography | No Comments

CEO and President Penny Young Nance wrote an opinion piece recently for Foxnews.com explaining how a new standard could have implications in protecting children on the Internet:

Google and Mozilla recently announced plans to begin testing a new standard that would encrypt the Domain Name System, often referred to as “the address book of the Internet.”

Depending on how DNS encryption is implemented, it could have serious implications for the protection of children.

While encryption in the name of additional security is a laudable goal, it needs to be done in a way that does not have the unintended consequence of impeding law enforcement and efforts to filter inappropriate and, in the case of child pornography, illegal content.

As a leading organization dedicated to protecting children and ending sexual exploitation, Concerned Women for America is deeply concerned about any potential changes to the functioning of the Internet that could inadvertently open the floodgates of harmful content and hurt efforts to identify and stop sex trafficking and child pornography.

Denny: The Epstein Case Is Back – Will Justice Be Done?

By | Legal, News and Events, Sex Trafficking / Pornography | No Comments

In a recent opinion piece featured in the Townhall.comDoreen Denny – CWA’s Senior Director of Government Relations discusses the Jeffrey Epstein case and asks, ” … if justice will be done in sex cases involving wealthy, sex-obsessed men?”

“Jeffrey Epstein is back in the news.  The case against multi-millionaire, serial pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is sickening, outrageous, and a total annihilation of due process and the rule of law. The absolute tragedy of the case cannot be overstated.

Pedophile sex trafficking charges against Epstein underscore the travesty of how wealthy, sex-obsessed men can get away with years of predatory behavior and leverage special treatment from prosecutors.   In Epstein’s case, vulnerable girls as young as 13 were groomed and enticed with cash for massages and sexual favors.  They were victims of sexual abuse.

In November, the confirmation hearing of William Barr for Attorney General served as a catalyst for resurrecting the decade-old case.    Senator Ben Sasse called for an investigation of the Department of Justice’s handling of the plea deal after The Miami Herald published a bombshell  investigative report. That report mustered scant attention. Outrage was relegated to random op-ed pages and an occasional columnist.”

Nassar Case Demonstrates Harms of Pornography

By | LBB, Legal, Sex Trafficking / Pornography, Sexual Exploitation | No Comments

The pornography cancer that continues to consume our nation reared its ugly head again as the sentencing hearing of Larry Nassar concluded this week. The former USA Gymnastics doctor was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, who told him, “I’ve just signed your death warrant.”

Nassar abused more than 150 girls over the past two decades. He got less than what he deserves.

But those getting acquainted with the case now might miss that, just like virtually every other predator in the history of sexual assault, Nassar fed, groomed, and rotted his brain on pornography before and after abusing girls for years.

It was pornography that did him in…
