A Republican state lawmaker in Arizona has introduced a resolution that would declare pornography a public health crisis.
A measure introduced by state Rep. Michelle Udall (R) passed through the Arizona House Committee on Health & Human Services on Thursday, the first hurdle in its path to a full vote, AZ Central reported. The symbolic measure has no legal effect but states that porn “perpetuates a sexually toxic environment that damages all areas of our society.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Like the tobacco industry, the pornography industry has created a public health crisis,” Udall told lawmakers, according to the outlet. “Pornography is used pervasively, even by minors.”
Udall’s proposal argues that children being exposed to accesible porn on the internet can lead to “low self-esteem, eating disorders and an increase in problematic sexual activity at ever-younger ages.”
