Breitbart.com: Utah Becomes First State to Call Porn a ‘Public Health Crisis’
On Tuesday, Utah became the first state in the country to designate pornography a “public health” issue.
The non-binding resolution will change no laws but, according to advocates, will begin a conversation about the harms porn causes among its users, most especially children who find porn easily on their hand-held devices.
Utah’s Governor Gary Herbert was quick to assure voters that the state government will not spend any money behind the designation and will not move to close down porn sites. Herbert, however, emphasized that the claims that pornography harms its users is “the full-fledged truth.”
