New Bill Could Force You To Pay Your State To Watch Porn

Virginia House Bill No. 1592, known as "The Human Trafficking Prevention Act" was introduced Jan. 19 and proposes making it, "unlawful for any person to distribute or sell any product that makes content accessible on the Internet unless the product possesses an operating digital content blocking capability that renders obscene content, including obscene items, obscene performances, or obscene exhibitions, inaccessible."

Lawmakers who proposed the bill said that by making pornography less accessible on the internet, it will reduce the amount of human trafficking. Terrie Foss of Virginia agrees with the bill:

β€œIf people want to view pornography, that’s their prerogative. But by having it free, it makes it too tempting for other people on the web to have access that can be influenced in a negative way."
