Victory! FL House Declares Pornography a Public Health Risk

This is big news: the Florida House passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health risk. Rep. Ross Spano sponsored the resolution and fought hard for its passage. We are so grateful for his dedication to this mission and for his leadership.Sexual exploitation is a scourge on our society and carefully vetted research shows clearly how pornography fuels other forms of sexual exploitation. 

Please thank Rep. Spano on Twitter and Facebook for what he’s doing to defend dignity and promote the truth about the harms of pornography in our public discourse.
