The National Center on Sexual Exploitation praised the passage of a Utah bill requiring warnings against obscene pornography.

House Bill 243 initially required a label on all pornographic videos stating that the content is “harmful to minors,” but the bill that went into effect April 1 after passing the House legislature requires the warning label only on obscene pornography, according to Fox 13 Salt Lake City.

Executive Director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE) Dawn Hawkins said in a statement that “Utah’s new ‘Warning Labels’ bill is an innovative way to warn the public that pornography is harmful, especially to minors.”

“As Utah was the first state to approve a resolution recognizing public health harms of pornography, including its harms on the psychological, social, and physical development of youth, this bill is a natural next step in protecting the most vulnerable,” she added.

“We commend the Utah Legislature for its work to protect children from the harms of hardcore pornography, which often included themes of incest, racism, and extreme violence.”
