Elizabeth Smart Speaks About Pornography’s Role In Her Abduction (Video)

A week ago, our friends at Fight the New Drug released a newsworthy article and video (below) about Elizabeth Smart. In the video, Elizabeth shared her story, recalling how pornography made her “living hell worse”. I share this with our readers for 2 reasons. First, to show another real-life example of the negative impact of pornography. Second, to share the hope that shines out of a dark story. Elizabeth shared, “I have gone on to become an advocate for abuse prevention and an advocate against pornography.” Elizabeth is a brave example on how a person can turn their pain into purpose.

May we all do the same.

*Please note, the following video has some disturbing content
