Petition Background (Preamble):

This petition is to ask President Obama to close down free internet porn sites.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on the US government to close down free internet porn sites. How many families and relationships have been damaged by pornography addiction?

Those sites contribute to violence towards women and young girls (with names such as bitch likes it up the ass etc it is easy to see that they promote a very negative image of women).

Some sites (virgin's first time, 18 and barely legal, exploited babysitter, coed dormitory etc) are slowly but surely planting the seed of child abuse in viewers' minds.

More and more sites have interactive links (for so called cybersex) and some even publish lists of 'easy' locals in your area. In other words, if you are looking for sex without commitment, while your wife/husband is not there, just log on and you will find a willing partner.

Pornography is not freedom of speech but an abuse of freedom of speech. Teenagers view the contents of hardcore sites and believe that this is how they should behave once in a relationship. They learn that violence, humiliation and degradation are 'normal' and enjoyable.

We, the undersigned, find this unacceptable and would like to ask you to permanently close down such free sites. Ideally we would like to see all porn sites deleted but if at least, it isn't possible to access porn for free, it would be a positive first step.

Thank you.
