Hugh Hefner is dead. He founded Playboy over a half century ago and is credited with "liberating America from sexual repression." But Hefner's true legacy is that he mainstreamed pornography. In Hefner's world, sex was a commodity and something to be pursued outside of marriage. Here's the legacy that Hefner left behind. Last year, STD's were at a record high with close to two million cases reported. Altogether, 40 percent of all first-time births are out of wedlock. There were close to one-million abortions last year. And one in three first time marriages end in divorce. We were told that pornography liberated women but the only think it liberated was men from marriage and family responsibility and it left a legacy of hurt in his wake.
