Parent Group Sues Over Porn Given to Students

Written by 

From FreedomProject Media:

With help from the Thomas More Society, a group of Colorado parents calling itself “Pornography Is Not Education” (PINE) is suing a controversial company that provides hardcore pornography and other obscene material to children in government schools across America. The Massachusetts-based firm, dubbed EBSCO Information Services, literally pumps graphic sex images and extreme perversion into more than 55,000 public schools. And the tax-funded Colorado Library Consortium helps. Parents have now had enough.

One of the key claims in the lawsuit is that the company is violating Colorado’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act, which prohibits using false claims to sell goods or services. In particular, the company markets its services to schools by claiming the content it provides is “age-appropriate.” No reasonable person would consider much of the filth in EBSCO's databases, which includes hardcore porn and instructions on how to engage in all manner of perversion, to be age-appropriate for school children.

In fact, so grotesque is the material provided to children by EBSCO that the National Center on Sexual Exploitation listed the company as one of the worst 12 companies in America that perpetuate sexual exploitation. A horrified state school board member contacted The Newman Report and provided access to EBSCO's databases. Among other obscene material, this writer was able to locate materials encouraging sexual perversion and even stories about adult sex with children within minutes.

“It is against the law to ply children with pornography,” explained Matthew Heffron, an attorney with the Thomas More Society who is engaged in litigation on behalf of the outraged Colorado parents. “If the local convenience store or movie theater can’t do it, why should EBSCO and the Colorado Library Consortium be allowed to get away with it?”
