ACLU Suits Could Allow Porn on School Computers

Thursday, 22 Sep 2011 04:46 PM

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has launched a joint initiative with Yale Law School that could expose children to hard-core pornography via school computers, David Cortman writes in an editorial at HumanEvents.com.

The “Don’t Filter Me Project,” which the ACLU and Yale claim is to protect schoolchildren’s access to information about alternative lifestyles, “is really nothing less than at attempt to bully entire school districts — including elementary, middle, and high schools in those districts — into allowing students to be exposed to sexually explicit material,” Cortman says.

The groups are filing lawsuits nationwide in an attempt to prevent the schools from using specific Web filters. Before launching a suit, the ACLU first recruits a student to file a complaint of First Amendment violations, Cortman contends.

“But no matter how the ACLU plays this one, it’s indefensible for a simple reason: It does not violate the First Amendment-protected rights of anyone to block sexual sites in school,” writes Cortman. “And make no mistake, the sites that would be accessible if the filters were removed are rife with what can only be considered pornography.”
