The U.S. Department of Justice released a report to law enforcement reinforcing the intent around the Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) Federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 Public Law 106-386. The report linked pornography with the victimization of children, sexual trafficking and the incidents of other sexual crimes such as rape and sodomy. Pornography was showcased as a catalyst, fueling fantasy-driven criminal behavior. Quantifying pornography’s deleterious effects is critical in applying remedies to reduce those effects. This bill passed the Kansas House (HB 2042) in Feb 2011by a vote of 119 yea; 2 nay. It died in a Senate committee.
