The Kansas Senate voted declared on Tuesday on a resolution that pornography is a public health crisis, citing problems ranging from erectile dysfunction to a possible gateway to human trafficking.

Senate Resolution 1762—has no legal effect—was passed, in a 35-4 vote, and tried to show the consequences of pornography, both personally and for society as a whole, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

The resolution said that exposure to pornography “teaches girls that they are to be used, and teaches the young users.” He also said that it is the sexual abuse and violence against women and children increases, they are treated as “objects”.

Some legislators were skeptical of the sudden concern about public health.

“Seriously? We’ll see how excited you are about public health, when it said the weapons,” Republican Sen. Barbara Bollier of The Witchita eagle.

Opponents of the resolution expressed concerns regarding the freedom of expression under the First amendment, and whether or not you exactly, pornography is a public health crisis.

Democratic sen. David Haley said of the eagle, he holds the First Amendment sacrosanct, and fears that, if the language is confirmed, it could cause “unintended consequences.”

The Kansas house approved a similar resolution in the year 2017, the cited scientific studies that show that pornography contributed to low self-esteem, “the problem of sexual activity in younger years,” and increases the sexual abuse and the demand for human trafficking.

As the simple decisions, neither the force of law.
