I would like to draw your attention to the work of an organisation called Porn Harms Kids, who address the harms of children and young people accessing online pornography using a public health approach.
Porn Harms Kids have compiled a Statement of Research relating to pornography harms to children. I bring this to your attention because a motion has been put for debate in Federal Parliament by Liberal MP Luke Howarth. This motion (no. 4) was given 21 March 2017 and was deferred in March’s sitting. It is likely to be debated in the next sitting of parliament.
As a member of your constituency, I invite you to carefully consider this Statement of Research and the implications of failing to act on behalf of children. It is essential that this motion gain bipartisan support, as the harms resulting from children and young people accessing pornography transcend political boundaries.
I thank you in advance for your interest and action in this important public health, wellbeing and child protection discussion.
I look forward to hearing back from you to confirm your support.
If you would like to let us know how your MP responded, please use our feedback form here.
