Petition To Shutdown PornHub

Written by on June 11, 2020

A petition demanding that the popular pornography website PornHub be closed down for allegedly profiting off of and enabling sex trafficking. As of yesterday morning, the petition has gathered more than 1,007,000 valid signatures and has been endorsed by around 300 human rights groups worldwide.

PornHub, the world’s largest and most popular porn site, has been repeatedly caught enabling, hosting, and profiting from videos of child rape, sex trafficking, and other forms of non-consensual content exploiting women, men, and minors.

A 15-year-old girl who had been missing for a year was finally found after her mother was tipped off that her daughter was being featured in videos on the site — 58 such videos of her rape alone, and sexual abuse were discovered on PornHub.

In response, PornHub says they have an “extensive team of human moderators dedicated to manually reviewing every single upload.” Pornhub claims a “steadfast commitment to eradicating and fighting any and all illegal content on the internet, including non-consensual content and under-age material.”

Right now, all it takes to upload a video is a valid email account. A video of any nature can be uploaded and remain on the site until a moderator reviews it. Which by that time could have thousands or hundreds of thousands of reviews already.

Porn websites are unfortunately legal, so long as they abide by strict laws to only promote sexual activities with consenting adults. Porn websites and filmmakers are required to obtain valid identification of every actor, for verification of their age. Many however don’t. If PornHub is shut down, its most likely many others will follow suit as many of the same videos are shared on other sites. Approximately, 120 million people visit PornHub daily.

Lord Jesus, I’m praying for all those who struggle with the addiction to pornography. Its so easily an attraction especially for us men. I pray that you give us the strength to fight the urges, in looking at porn, and we pray that those who promote such immorality be brought to justice. I pray all this in Jesus name, Amen.
