Imagine a web site that teaches children how to end their own lives?

This is only one story of the many that exist.  We know that  Sanctioned Suicide is responsible for the deaths of  many people throughout the world.  As long as the law governing the internet, as it is written today, continues without new legislation, sites like this will continue to teach and train others how to end their lives.  This is not free speech, this is murder!

Current Legislation Allows This to Continue

That site already exists, and it’s impacting the lives of children and other vulnerable people every day.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act contains just 26 words.  Those 26 words provide legal protection for Internet sites that promote assisted suicide and other dangerous and criminal activities, often targeting our children and our vulnerable friends and family members. Fix The 26 was organized to put an end to this legal protection. 

We need your help to make the modern Internet a safer place for our children, our friends, and our family members.

What Is Section 230?

The Communications Decency Act of 1996

No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.

So What Do These 26 Words Do?

In 1996, Congress clearly decided that protecting commerce and business was more important than protecting people.

SanctionedSuicide.com is clearly in the business of assisted suicide.  It takes less than 20 minutes browsing the site to see that despite claims to the contrary, the site is steeped in a culture that glorifies ending one’s own life and provides a vast amount of information on exactly how to do it. 

In the physical world, assisted suicide is not legal in most parts of the US.  On the Internet, however, a blind eye is turned to this kind of thing.  While traditional arms of law-enforcement struggle to resolve jurisdiction and enforcement issues, the companies responsible for keeping sites like this alive have no accountability for the support they’re providing to criminals and miscreants.

The 26 words of Section 230 provide companies like Google, Verizon (Yahoo!), Microsoft (Bing), Cloudflare and Digital Ocean with broad protection and zero liability for content found on the platforms they operate.  Cloudflare will continue to provide DNS and protective proxy services for SanctionedSuicide.com, a hosting company will continue to host the site, and the search engines will continue to index the site and happily lead people to it.  Why? Because they can, without fear of consequence. These companies are free to operate in the name of maximum financial gain with minimal or no social or legal responsibility for keeping the Internet safe.

You can complain all you want to the companies that host and otherwise support SanctionedSuicide.com.  It won’t matter because Section 230 exists and empowers them to simply not care. It’s time to change that.  NOW.
