Commission on Pornography

May 11, 1986

I must express my disappointment with the coverage The Times gave to the Attorney General's Pornography Commission (May 1), "Commission Founders on Limits to Sex."

Even the title was misleading. The commission was not trying to limit sex, but to define what practices were harmful to the society.

The whole issue of what the commission members are trying to do is sidestepped. Instead of showing how the commission is trying to put an end to pornography, which includes the murder of children, violence and degradation, this article brought up isolated facts--to point to the laws in some states that regulate sexual activities within the marriage and then make it look as if this commission is trying to saddle us with the same kind of recommendations.

The article also implied that the commission was not able to be as thorough as the Nixon Commission because it was not given the funds to do its own research. All they had to do was to look around them. The facts they needed are here in our lives today as a result of the liberal findings of the Nixon Commission.

I applaud the efforts of those people who are trying to change the direction in which our country is heading by attacking evil, even though their involvement means danger, pressure and perhaps signing a less-than-perfect recommendation.
