Catholic Women’s League fighting ‘porn pandemic’

CWL launches awareness campaign to help in the on-going battle against pornography addiction

The Catholic Women’s League is taking direct aim at pornography.

The CWL is launching an awareness campaign to help its members arm themselves with information to help in the on-going battle against pornography addiction.

“Pornography is addictive, damages relationships and harms society,” says the CWL in a press release.

By conducting seminars, the CWL is hoping to give added ammunition to members to recognize the addiction in family members and encourage them to seek help.

The CWL has a long history in standing up against pornography.

In 2003, it presented a resolution to the federal government urging it to expedite the implementation of a national strategy to eliminate computer-based child pornography and to increase funding to enable law enforcement agencies to enforce this national strategy.

It continues to lobby members of Parliament to implement clear and protective legislation to fight the “porn pandemic.”
