South Dakota senators have unanimously passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health crisis.
This non-binding resolution was based on the model resolution written by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.
The term “public health crisis” is used to broadly define both physical and social problems—from cigarette smoking to bullying—and it unequivocally applies to pornography, because pornography is a serious, harmful problem that affects individuals and groups beyond their capacity to correct alone.
The research on pornography clearly links it to damages to the brain, body, and rates of sexual violence in our society.
Since 2009there have been 24 major studies that support the reality of compulsive porn use and the negative impacts of pornography on the users’ brain structure and function.
Pornography is also linked to decreased erectile function, as revealed by a2015 studyof young men that also found that pornography use was linked to lower sexual satisfaction with a partner.”
In addition to these physiological harms, pornography teaches that women enjoy sexual violence, and unfortunately this lesson is being heard loud and clear. Ameta-analysis of 46 studiesreported that the effects of pornography use are “clear and consistent,” and put one at increased risk for committing sexual offenses and accepting rape myths—such as that women enjoy rape, and that rapists can’t control their urges.
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation commends the South Dakota senators for their leadership in recognizing the harms of pornography.

Americans have become so “non-judgmental” that many people can no longer tell the difference between good and evil. We congratulate ourselves for being “nicer,” more sensitive and less prejudiced than past generations of Americans, but we don’t stop to consider how much more there is to morality than that. An America that isn’t full of good people won’t remain a good nation, nor will it remain strong and free over the long haul. Our country’s lack of morality has real consequences that are capable of eventually sinking us as a nation.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, January 6, 2017 — A state lawmaker believes that those who promote pornography to children and teens should be punished by society.
Utah state Senator Todd Weiler says pornographers know that their products harm users, spouses, family, and even careers, and yet they put greed above the well-being of people, society, and even American culture. In March 2016, he successfully proposed a resolution describing pornography as a “public health hazard.”
