A Utah lawmaker has introduced a resolution to declare pornography a “public health hazard.”
Republican Sen. Todd Weiler filed the bill last week to battle what he calls a “pornography epidemic that is harming the citizens of Utah and the nation.” The resolution urges education and policy changes to stop pornography exposure and addiction, which it says leads to the hypersexualization of teens, prostitution and cheating spouses, among other problems.
Pornography use is “linked to lessening desire in young men to marry, dissatisfaction in marriage, and infidelity,” the resolution says.
