Porn Declared Public Health Crisis by ARK Lawmakers

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. --  A panel of lawmakers unanimously pass a resolution Wednesday declaring pornography a public health crisis.

The bill cites an array of individual and community problems that proponents say are associated with pornography, including sex trafficking and child exploitation.

A supporter for the bill, a former adult film actress, testified in front of the committee warning about the negative impacts of that and other industries.

"The pornography industry, strip clubs, hooters and all forms of exploitation prey upon the vulnerable," said Jessica Neeley, an adult film actress.

The resolution is non binding, but does encourage the state to seek education, prevention, research and policy change to reverse problems associated with pornography.
