• Pro-Family Group Commends Grand Jury Indictment of Pedophilic ‘Cuties’

    Surge Summary: A pro-family organization has applauded a Texas grand jury which has indicted Netflix for its screening of Cuties – a film which features visual material tied to pedophilia. Netflix has also endured serious subscription cancellations from those who object to its offering this kind of material.

    Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said she was, “greatly encouraged that ‘Cuties’ has been indicted by a grand jury in Tyler, Texas. I’m glad something is finally being done to oppose the sexual exploitation of children, as exemplified by the French film ‘Cuties’ now showing on Netflix.”

    According to a New York Post article, the Texas grand jury charged that Netflix did “knowingly promote visual material which depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time.”

    Morse explained in an August 26 press release: “The movie is about a group of pre-teen girls doing highly eroticized dance routines to win a competition. From the way they’re dressed to their moves, ‘Cuties’ sexualizes girls who were playing with dolls a short time ago. Such depictions groom young women to be victims.”

    Morse also noted from a Fox Business article, “Netflix is paying the price for promoting this degeneracy. Since it began showing ‘Cuties’ last month, it’s seen a spike in subscribers choosing not to renew the service, compared to the same period last year.”

    There have also been calls in Congress for the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation. Rep. Vern Buchanan (R, Fla.) said it was time to “stop catering to predators and start paying more attention to protecting children.”

    Morse concluded, “We need to get serious about combatting the plague of child pornography. Young lives are at stake.”

    The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
