No more Evil targeted advertising to children on television

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Everyday there are television advertisements that purposely take advantage of the natural credulity and sense of loyalty in children in order for them to consume their product. Most European countries have strict laws on what can be advertised to children, while the U.S. has basically no laws when it comes to protecting our children. Many of these advertisments mislead children into starting unhealthy eating habits. California is in need of a law that stops advertisers from purposely misleading children on the effects of a food product or showing children harmful eating habits in a commercial.

When hearing a law like this one may think, this is against freedom of speech! However, there are already laws against advertising in the U.S. For example, no advertisment can show anyone actively consuming alcohol.
