15 states have already declared pornography a public health crisis, but Texas is late to the game.

 

This is shameful, because Texas has a well-documented sex trafficking problem that is fueled by pornography use.

 

To make matters worse, the House of Representatives calendar committee is currently planning to push this resolution off of this legislative session's floor calendar.

 

If this happens, Texas will not vote on this legislation until 2021.

 

We cannot wait. #DEFENDTEXAS.

Copy and paste a response of your choosing in the form below

to make it known that the people of Texas will not stand for this.

Option 1

Please add H.C.R. No. 126 to the floor calendar for this legislative session.

We can't wait until 2021. #DEFENDTEXAS

Texas has always been a bastion of freedom, independence, and personal liberty. Pornography has become a danger to our public health, creating a generation of Texans that are increasingly dependent on porn use. As Texans, we cannot remain silent in the face of this epidemic that effects our children and elderly alike.

Option 2

Please add H.C.R. No. 126 to the floor calendar for this legislative session.

We can't wait until 2021. #DEFENDTEXAS

Texas has always been a bastion of freedom, independence, and personal liberty. Pornography fuels the demand for sex trafficking: an epidemic in Texas. As Texans, we must minimize the demand for sex trafficking in our proud lone star state. We must address the harmful influences of pornography.

H.C.R. No. 126

By: Rep. Valoree Swanson

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

        WHEREAS, Each day, countless people are exposed to sexually

 explicit content through a wide range of media, and these consumers

 are often unaware of the health risks posed by such material; and

        WHEREAS, Children are encountering pornography before their

 teens, and this early exposure may lead to low self-esteem and body

 image disorders and an increased desire to engage in risky sexual

 behavior; and

        WHEREAS, Besides promoting unhealthy sexual expectations,

 the adult entertainment industry produces media that objectify

 women and children as well as depict rape and abuse; by associating

 violence with sexual gratification, these materials perpetuate the

 demand for sex trafficking, prostitution, child pornography, and

 sexual abuse images; and

        WHEREAS, Pornography has also been linked to such detrimental

 health effects as brain development complications, emotional and

 medical afflictions, the inability to form and maintain intimate

 relationships, and sexual addiction; these dangers not only affect

 people on an individual level but also contribute to the

 degradation of the family unit, frequently leading to marital

 dissatisfaction and infidelity; and

        WHEREAS, The ubiquity of pornography has resulted in a host

 of societal problems and potentially negative health effects, and

 it is of paramount importance that our leaders tackle this critical

 public health issue; now, therefore, be it

        RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 86th Texas

 Legislature hereby recognize that pornography is a public health

 hazard; and, be it further

        RESOLVED, That the Texas House of Representatives recognize

 the need for education, prevention, research, and policy changes to

 address the harmful influence and consequences of pornography.
