Concerned Women for America of North Dakota Encourages Gov. Burgum to Support the Removal of Pornographic Material From Children’s Libraries
Bismarck, North Dakota: Concerned Women for America (CWA) of North Dakota applauds the North Dakota legislature for passing legislation to protect children from pornography, which has been found in children’s sections of public libraries across the state. Pornography that is easy to access has led to widespread use leading to illegal activity, like child abuse, prostitution, and sex trafficking.
We urge Gov. Doug Burum to ensure our public libraries are safe places for children by signing SB 2360. Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for material that is harmful to children and is a public health risk.
CWA of North Dakota State Director Linda Thorson has this to say: “Internet safety policies block certain materials from being accessed through the internet in libraries and schools today. SB 2360 ensures the removal of obscene written material in children’s libraries as well. Safety policies and technology protection measures are urgently needed, and we are hopeful Gov. Burgum signs SB 2360 to protect minors from the harmful impacts of exposure to pornography.”
Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) is the legislation and advocacy arm of Concerned Women for America. Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with a rich 40-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy.
