Pornography as a public health crisis resolution introduced in Florida: Hat tip to Ross Spano

Good evening, Gramps here,

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) says the pornography of today has created an unprecedented epidemic of sexual harm. Young children are now exposed to hardcore (mainstream) pornography at an alarming rate, with 27% of older millennials (age 25-30) reporting that they first viewed pornography before puberty. Sixty-four percent of people 13–24 actively seek out pornography weekly or more often.

And the harm afflicted by pornography is now being recognized by science and research and the list of troubles is long–which includes Pornography-Induced Erectile Dysfunction (PIED), an increase in sexual violence and is addictive and unmanageable.

It really has become a public health crisis.

Following in the footsteps of Utah, Arkansas, Tennessee, and South Dakota, the state of Florida currently has a state resolution in the House proposing a declaration of pornography as a public health crisis.

The resolution was introduced by State Representative Ross Spano from the Tampa Bay area.

The proposal states that: “The public health crisis created by pornography and acknowledges the need for education, prevention, research, and policy change to protect the citizens of this state.”

Thank you Representative Spano for your efforts.
