Republican delegates will vote next week at their national convention to declare porn “a public health crisis.”

On Monday, representatives from the Republican National Convention subcommittee on health care, education and crime voted to amend the pornography stance to the party’s draft platform at the Republican National Convention, according to Yahoo News.

Mary Forrester, a North Carolina delegate, offered the amendment that would make changes to the 2102 party’s platform on pornography that dealt with child pornography and the enforcement of laws on obscenity. (RELATED: Congressional Candidate Accidentally Shares Porn Tastes On Facebook)

“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.”

Donald Trump has made no mentions that he will not adopt the party’s entire platform.

The convention takes place in Cleveland from July 18-21.
