Now, more than ever, we need your support to let the government know that more needs to be done to address children and young people being exposed to pornography.
Today, Luke Howarth MP, put forward a motion that is likely to be debated next week.
*4 MR HOWARTH : To move—That this House:
(1) notes that:
(a) the easy access of violent sexually explicit material online poses a risk to our children’s wellbeing; and
(b) authoritative research has linked regular consumption of pornography by adolescents depicting violence with increased degrees of sexually aggressive behaviour; and
(2) calls on our community to work together to:
(a) increase awareness that exposure to graphic images can influence children’s attitude towards sexual behaviour;
(b) encourage open discussions within families; and
(c) utilise the services of the eSafety Commissioner’s online iParent website to increase awareness of how families can keep safe online.
Will you email your MP and let them know how important this issue is to you?

Thank you for taking a stand on behalf of the children of Australia!
