Default Backpage.com last night shuttered its controversial adult listings section.

Every "Adult" page on the site now reads: "The government has unconstitutionally censored this content," followed by a hyperlink to Backpage's "Media Resources" page.
Backpage's decision to self-censor came hours before its current and former executives were set to testify before the U.S. Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. At issue are the company's controversial adult advertisements, which lawmakers and other critics claim are responsible for acts of prostitution and human trafficking.
