Agudath Israel of America blasted the U.S. Supreme Court for its ruling on Internet pornography. “This is the third time over the past several years that the Supreme Court has favored the rights of online pornographers and the pitiful adults who seek out their filth over the interests of innocent and impressionable children,” said Rabbi David Zwiebel, Agudah’s executive vice president for government and public affairs. In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled Tuesday that the Child Online Protection Act, which fines people who place on the Internet images deemed harmful to minors, does not meet constitutional free speech standards.
