Arizona Declares Porn A Public Health Crisis, Is Mum On Climate Change, However

Arizona State Senate.

Arizona is plagued by droughts, but Republicans in the senate still say nothing about climate change.

According to AZ Central, Arizona Republican senators adopted a measure which declares pornography a public-health crisis. The measure urges the state to “systemically prevent exposure and addiction.”

The resolution also deems the "societal damage of pornography…beyond the capability of the individual to address alone." It says that porn could lead to human trafficking, sexual abuse, infidelity, and eating disorders as well as low-self esteem.

The measure asks state officials to "educate individuals and families about its harms and develop pornography-recovery programs," but it does not change state law.

Democrats opposed the measure, as they say it is distracting from other, more important issues.

"This bill, on its face, sounds like it might be a good idea, but it doesn't have any teeth," Sen. Victoria Steele, D-Tucson, said on the Senate floor. "It won't result in any changes. It is a way for people to check off that box and make it look like they've done something."

In the meantime, Arizona Republicans remain silent on climate change despite the droughts that have plagued Arizona for years.
