Human Trafficking

The Family Foundation believes that the onjectification of women is a great injustice and must be stopped.

Efforts to bring more attention to this plight, encourage help from private individuals and companies, increase the priority of current law enforcement, and strengthen our laws must continue.

Pornography

Pornography has spread like a plague in our nation. It has moved from the margins of our culture to the mainstream, attacking marriages, families, and communities. Worst of all, it has stolen a time of innocence from our children.

Obscenity and child pornography are illegal and not protected by the First Amendment. They acquire no legal protection merely because they are sent over the Internet. Websites distributing this material from overseas can be prosecuted under extradition agreements, but the fact is that the overwhelming majority of hardcore Internet pornography is produced in the United States and should be prosecuted aggressively. The Family Foundation calls for the vigorous enforcement of all existing laws against child pornography and obscenity, and regards pornography as a form of human sex trafficking.

Courts have ruled that some adult pornography that does not meet the legal definition of obscenity has first amendment protection, but that protection is not absolute. Laws may regulate the time, place, and manner of distribution and may restrict it from children. We do not have adequate laws to protect children from this kind of material online and The Family Foundation will continue to work toward stronger laws to protect children.

Privacy/Safety

One of the clearest principles in the U.S. Constitution is a citizen’s right to privacy. And one of the most basic functions of government is to provide security and safety for its citizens.

Both privacy and safety become particularly important for students who are mostly minors and are required to be in school, by law.

As bullying and students identifying as another gender have gained attention, school bathrooms and lockerrooms have become an area of concern.

The Family Foundation believes ALL students deserve bathrooms, locker rooms, and overnight accommodations that take into account their privacy and safety needs. EVERY student should be reasonably accommodated by school officials, regardless of who they are.

The Family Foundation does not support singling out any specific student or groups of students. Students dealing with bullying, medical, self esteem, identity, or other issues should all be provided with reasonable accommodations to ensure the privacy and safety their dignity as humans entitles them to.

The requirement that accommodations be reasonable ensures that control remains at the local level, schools are not overburdened, and that students of the opposite sex are not sharing the same bathrooms, lockerrooms, or overnight accommodations at the same time.
