Public Health Crisis
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
Utah just became the first state to declare pornography a public health crisis.
Governor Gary Herbert signed a unanimously passed resolution calling for the education, prevention, research and policy changes to address the pornography “epidemic.” To skeptics, the governor reiterated the crisis as “the full-fledged truth.”
Sen. Todd Weiler stated, “We have restaurants… some of which cater to children, who are providing free and unfiltered Wi-Fi as well as public libraries,” Weiler said, “If a library or McDonald’s or anyone else was giving out cigarettes to our children we would be picketing them.”
Weiler, called on the multibillion dollar pornography industry to “help us protect children from your evil…addictive, harmful substances.”
