Committee for Justice (CFJ) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“And, despite the fact that the vast majority of American families are concerned about their children’s’ exposure to Internet pornography…the ACLU…[has] been dogged in their determination to see that children are not protected from online pornography… The ACLU’s protection of pornographers goes beyond the issue of children’s’ exposure to obscene materials to include the use of children in pornography.”
