Pornography Public Health Crisis

Pornography Declared Public Health Crisis

PORNOGRAPHY DECLARED PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS BY UTAH SENATE

UNANIMOUS VOTE IN UTAH LABELS PORN DANGEROUS TO PUBLIC HEALTH.

Utah recently passed a resolution that declared pornography as a public health crisis.

The bill was approved in the month of February by the Utah Senate. The vote was unanimous, 24-0. Literally, no one voted against this bill.

Jeffrey Holland said:

“Society must see this evil like the epidemic it is. This ought to be seen like a public health crisis, like a ware, like an infectious fatal epidemic, like a moral plague on the body politic that is maiming the lives of our citizens.” He continues, “We need to see this (pornography) like  the avian flu, cholera, diphtheria or polio … It needs to be eradicated!”

In the wake of passing the resolution, Susan Dennin, spokesperson for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City, Utah, said that the resolution confirms the belief of the Church in the dignity of men and women that cannot be violated in any way and the gift of marriage and sexuality in the plan of God for human beings.

Senator Todd Weiler of Utah, who is also a sponsor of the resolution, said that pornography has become such an issue in the society that it can no longer be ignored.

Weiler said he believes that pornography is just like the tobacco industry a long time ago, nobody thought tobacco was harmful until now. Pornography is just like this … “It’s more harmful than we realize.”
