Nationwide 'Porn Harms' Campaign Launches, Organizers Say Porn 'Silently and Secretly' Destroys Lives

Pornified society?

A broad coalition of 110 groups have come together to launch a month-long campaign intended to educate the public about the harms of pornography. The initiative, created by the War on Illegal Pornography Coalition, brings local and national groups together to address the negative consequences of porn, while providing educational and support tools.

Each week, the campaign will tackle a different issue associated with pornography. This week, experts will discuss porn addiction. Then, the campaign will shift to the harm that is done to children, an exploration of sex trafficking and, in its final week, it will conclude with violence against women. According to LifeSiteNews.com, the campaign's planners say:

“[Porn] is a pandemic ruining lives, marriages and families. Our now Pornified society has eroded the cultural norms in America to the point that even a major TV network, using the public airwaves, is planning programming with a known pornographer and exploiter of women. This harm must end.”

Organizers, who claim that pornography is "silently and secretly" destroying lives, are planning 25 events, webcasts and plenty more. They claim that they, much like the producers of pornography who they are combatting, can use the Internet to spread a message of hope. Below, watch the campaign's first online event:

This initiative is one of many that address what appears to be a rise in addiction to pornography. HeLPAddictions.org is a new web site intended to help cure this growing problem. Examiner.com reports:

Those addicted to porn now have a website to go to, a sort of Internet-based hotline, to help with their addiction. A U.K.-based company, HeLPAddictions.org, has launched a porn addiction hot line of sorts, based on the Internet as a 24-hour a day counseling website...

[Faye Blackwell, one of the site's three counseling experts] said, "It's obvious to us that Internet-based addiction has become increasingly prevalent over the years. This addiction carries extra baggage. People are embarrassed and guilt-ridden, and there aren't many places that they can go to talk about it."

Below, watch Dr. Mary Anne Layden explain why she believes pornography is harmful to individuals:
