The Public Health Pornography Pandemic Campaign

"Donna is one of the leaders in the fight against pornography aimed at children on the Internet." Oprah Winfrey

The campaign continues to fuel the growing movement to shed light on the social costs and corroding influence of Internet pornography as a public health epidemic, backed by peer-reviewed social and medical science. Our goal to create a cultural shift in attitudes about obscene Internet pornography in order to curb its damaging impact on children, adults and the culture. EIE is working with a broad coalition of medical and public health professionals to achieve these goals.

Since 2016, 15 states have proposed or passed resolutions declaring pornography a public health crisis, including Utah, South Dakota, Arkansas and Tennessee, with several others (see up-to-date list here).

EIE's President┬áDonna Rice Hughes' article, "The Internet Pornography Pandemic: The Largest Unregulated Social Experiment in Human History" for The Southern Evangelical Seminary's 2014 Christian Apologetics Journal has become the "go to" reference source for updated peer-reviewed studies and research on the issue and also provides a roadmap for solutions. "… a superb job of marshalling the extremely disturbing evidence of the massive harm being done to our fellow citizens, especially children, by hard-core pornography." Dr. Richard Land, President of Southern Evangelical Seminary
