Please join us in thanking Republican State Senator Todd Weiler for his efforts to limit access to pornography in Utah.

Thanks to efforts in Utah’s state legislature, porn could be blocked from Internet-enabled devices. Senator Weiler is pushing for mandatory porn filters, saying that it is a “public heath hazard.”

Let’s applaud this effort to increase public health and to protect our sons and daughters from the negative effects of online voyeurism.

Weiler correctly compares the effects of porn to the effects of tobacco use: “I believe that pornography today is like tobacco was 70 years ago. 70 years ago people said tobacco's not addictive and it's not harmful, and that's what some people are saying about pornography today. I happen to believe that it is addictive and it is harmful."

He goes on to argue that porn is “undermining marriages, it's undermining relationships, and ultimately if someone gets divorced, that affects the government, because we end up with more children and spouses on government welfare."

We should encourage his push for more concrete measures to introduce mandatory porn filters to all internet-enabled devices, like laptops and smartphones. If Internet users wanted to view adult content, they would have to opt-out of the filter by contacting their Internet service provider. 

While the drafts of these bills are still in their early stages, we can thank and encourage the beginning of this effort. Porn is a public health hazard that is crippling the ability for relational integrity in generations of young people. Please join the movement to fight against these terrible effects!

Dear State Senator Todd Weiler,

Thank you for your efforts to limit access to pornography in Utah. 

Porn is a public health hazard that is crippling marriages and relationships in America. It is particularly harmful to the development of young people. Like tobacco use 70 years ago, many ignore the negative effects of porn even though they are now undeniable.

Please stand strong in the Senate, and make sure that this bill makes it through the legislative progress. Keep fighting for the health of young people in our state!
