The Massachusetts Medical Society adopted a resolution related to violent and sexually explicit television programming. Here’s language from its release:

“MMS physicians voted to engage in efforts to inform the public of the potentially harmful health consequences from the prevalence of television programs concentrated on violence and pornography. While decrying society’s desensitization to media violence, physicians believed the profession has an obligation to speak out in opposition to violent programming, while not condoning censorship.”
