The Christian Post: Florida on Path to Declare Pornography a ‘Public Health Crisis’

Florida is proposing a resolution to declare pornography a public health crisis given its ties to human trafficking and domestic violence.

The resolution, which is being proposed in both houses of the Florida state legislature, says pornography is “creating a public health crisis” that is contributing to the hypersexualization of children and teenagers. The resolution warns of porn’s addictive nature, outlines the physical and psychological risks and dangers in porn consumption, notes how it objectifies men and women, and damages families and relationships.

The measure is being backed by groups dedicated to fighting sexual exploitation, such as the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, Internet accountability group Covenant Eyes, and the Trafficking in America Task Force, among others.

Founded in 1962, National Center on Sexual Exploitation is the leading national organization opposing pornography by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse, addiction and more. The organization changed its name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation early in 2015 to better describe the organization’s scope and mission, which is to expose the seamless connection between all forms of sexual exploitation.
