GOP Committee Calls Porn 'Public Health Crisis'

CLEVELAND—Republican delegates referred to porn as “a public health crisis” and a “public menace” as they unanimously adopted an amendment to their draft platform Monday morning. According to a Yahoo.com report, the language went further than the 2012 GOP platform, which condemned child porn and encouraged the enforcement of obscenity laws. “Pornography, with his harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions," the amendment said. "We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and well-being." Yahoo reported that Mary Forrester, a delegate from North Carolina, offered the amendment during the Republican National Convention subcommittee meeting on healthcare, education and crime. The full body votes on the platform changes Monday and Tuesday, the report said. Forrester told Yahoo News she worked on the amendment with the conservative Christian group Concerned Women for America. “It’s such an insidious epidemic and there are no rules for our children,” Forrester said. “It seems to be for young people, they do not have the discernment and so they become addicted before they have the maturity to understand the consequences.”
