Lets make harsher more severe punishments for child abusers

    1. Petition by

I would like to see harsher more severe punishments for child abusers.I would like to see child abuse an automatic FELONY, and not determined on the extent of the injuries!   Statistics say that every 10 SECONDS a child will be abused.  FIVE children die EVERY DAY from child abuse.  This needs to stop.  We need to make a law that ends this cycle and make it so child abusers are jailed and punished.  Lets make it about the children! Lets pass "Kate's Law"

      I completely agree with you. Child abuse is an absolutely intolerable crime that needs to have much more sever punishments. Injuries may not surface for years, but the emotional pain that is inflicted develops immediately. This is a worthy cause. Please sign it today.

      This needs to stop. Any one who would hurt a child should be punished.They should not get a slap on the wrist, this should be a felony. It could be your child and how would you feel.

      Any abuse, verbal or physical is unacceptable and should be punished by automatic life sentence and, in case's like Kate's, death penalty! The reason these animals do this is because the punishment is a slap on the hand! They LOSE all Rights once they strike a child in an abusive way!!!
