The Arizona State Senate has passed a resolution that declared pornography a public health crisis in the state.
The resolution that passed makes the declaration, but does not provide any actions or plans to act. The bill states the following:
“Pornography perpetuates a sexually toxic environment that damages all areas of our society,” proceeding to list that “potential detrimental effects on pornography users include toxic sexual behaviors, emotional, mental and medical illnesses and difficulty forming or maintaining intimate relationships.”
The bill first passed in the Arizona House of Representatives on Feb. 25, with 32 votes in favor and 28 against.
