man using computer in dark roomA federal agency is being asked to finally take action against pornographers.

Pornhub has received a lot of attention in recent weeks, largely because the websites it owns have featured pictures and videos of underage girls and trafficked women. Finally, after a New York Times article, the company pulled millions of its videos, thanks to credit card companies cutting ties with the porn provider.

Donna Rice Hughes of Enough is Enough is grateful fort that but says it is not enough.

"We have been trying at Enough is Enough and some of our other NGOs (non-governmental organizations) to get the Department of Justice to shut down Pornhub," Hughes tells One News Now. "They're the largest pornographer in the world. They make over $3 billion a year and get about 42 billion hits per year, and that includes children."

She points out that producing and profiting from such material violates community standards and is prosecutable.

"What we're asking the Department of Justice to do is to not just prosecute them for the trafficking cases that they found and the child pornography cases, but also the obscene pornography cases," Hughes explains. "That is the lion's share of the content that is on Pornhub."

So Enough is Enough is asking people to nudge the Department of Justice in the right direction by signing a petition that will eventually be submitted to the agency, asking them to pursue the additional prosecution.
