Short and simple, this is WHY Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act must be amended.
"Classified advertising websites have made it as easy as ordering a pizza to order human beings for sex from the privacy of one’s home, office, hotel room, or cell phone. Many of those bought and sold on such websites are sexually trafficked children and adults. One such website, Backpage.com, facilitates this activity by editing ads to conceal the illegality of underlying criminal activity.
Despite investigations by the U.S. Congress and several court cases, websites like Backpage.com are getting away with their role in facilitating sex trafficking, because of an outdated law that is shielding them from justice. That law is the Communications Decency Act (CDA). Most of the CDA was struck down by the Supreme Court years ago, but Section 230 remains and unfortunately, it is being interpreted by the courts to give Backpage immunity for facilitating online sex trafficking. For this reason the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE), along with survivors, anti-trafficking advocates, law enforcement officials, and concerned citizens are calling on the U.S. Congress to amend the CDA." -Matt Fradd
