You've got one week to make your voice heard at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
April 30th … that's the cut-off date set by the FCC to receive the public's "feedback" on its consideration of dropping current broadcast decency standards that ban explicit profanity and "non-sexual" nudity.
And you better believe they'll be hearing from us. I urge you to stand with Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee as we engage the FCC and move to the front lines of the fight to protect America's children.
Current broadcast decency law prohibits expletives and nudity, even if brief or "fleeting."
The Supreme Court has upheld the law as constitutionally enforceable by the FCC, despite lawsuit attempts by networks NBC and FOX to overturn it.
And even after that decision last summer, did the FCC pursue the over one million complaints about the filth Americans were already forced to watch? Of course not! They simply sat on these complaints. And now, according to their own statement on the proposed rules, those complaints have been dismissed because they were "stale."
But if this new law is enacted, it would allow network television and local radio stations to air the "F" word and the "S" word and allow television programs to show frontal female exposure, even during typical hours when children are watching and listening.
I think you'd agree: Today's television goes far enough. The last thing we need is more vulgarity, more filth, more indecency.
For the sake of the children and grandchildren you love, we must take a strong and united stand in this fight. While the FCC goes M.I.A. on protecting America's children, we will not fail them.
Speak up for your family - your values - and the future of decency in America.
P.S. CWALAC remains your voice on Capitol Hill and with the Executive Agencies today and every day. With your signed petitions in hand, we will stand for you before the FCC and members of Congress to protect your home and your children from offensive broadcast content. Please don't wait - join the battle to protect America's children. Sign your petition now!
