Companies to ask for ID before giving access to pornography (USA)

The Louisiana Legislature is trying to protect children from porn and they’re asking for adults to present their ID when trying to access it. Children have much easier access to pornography than they used to have. According to Dr. Gail Dines, an anti-porn advocate, children under the age of 10 now account for 22 percent of underage online porn consumption. While 10-14-year-olds make up 36%. The average age of first exposure to pornography is 11 years old. The Representative pushing the bill, Laurie Schlegel, stated that the bill would make it so that the verification would only reveal if the user is over 18. Unlimited access to pornography on the internet is causing a public health crisis for our children, Schlegel affirmed. The law passed out of the committee without any opposition.
