Arizona is in desperate need of House Bill 2793, which eliminates the existence of altered images among printed publishings, such as magazines, and newspapers. Arizona is amongst the highest percentile of states in America of people who suffer from mental illnesses and behavioral disorders, including eating disorders such as Anorexia and Bulimia. One of the greatest contributors to these sicknesses is the mind's interpretation of unrealistic images projected by the media.

The solution to such complications is obvious: Eliminate the faulty advertisements! Section 44-1481 of the Arizona State Legislature translates that “any false, fraudulent, deceptive or misleading” advertisements are subject to class three misdemeanor. This law has no purpose if it is not being enforced. House Bill 2793 will discontinue media’s distorted perception of beauty, creating a greater sense of pride and confidence among the citizens of Arizona.

Altered advertisements provide nothing but a robbery of self esteem and a damaged satisfaction in one’s self. House Bill 2793 is the evident choice in solving this sickening predicament.
