Abstract

The author of this article states that People Opposed to Pornography, having some success with getting some stores to pull magazines from their shelves, is now going after goals where it will take more than social pressure to get the job done. Public libraries have told POP that they will not remove Playboy from circulation and the district attorney has told the group that he does not have the money to do what the Supreme Court will not, define pornography. He told the group to take the case through the regular channels. The author then states that the people of America have the right to read what they want and no one has the right to say that is wrong.
