LDS Church Video Featured at European Parliament's Conference on Children and Pornography

At a recent conference hosted by the European Parliament, the Church shared the resources they've created for helping those addicted to pornography and preventing children from being exposed to pornography, including this powerful video:

Members of the European Parliament, in partnership with the Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe (FAFCE) and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, hosted a conference Wednesday titled “Exposure of Children to Pornography in the European Union.”

“Access and exposure to pornography affect children and young people’s sexual beliefs, resulting in unrealistic attitudes about sex, greater acceptance of casual sex, belief that women are sex objects, (and) increased children and young people’s sexual uncertainty about their sexual beliefs and values,” Dr. Emiliano Lambiase, a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist from Italy, said in discussing results from recent research.

Exploring the effects of pornography on children is a topic that the European Parliament member Anna Zaborska of Slovakia said needs to be talked about “more openly, especially its addictive aspects.”
