Harsher penalties for child and sex abusers.

It is important to protect our children in a world that is becoming more and more abusive. If you look around I bet you know someone or know of someone who has been abused whether it was physically or sexually. If you commit this act you get less jail time than someone who sells drugs. I see something wrong with this picture. I am a survivor of child abuse and sexual assault. The damage it does and the emotional scars it leaves on a person are far longer than that of the abuser who spends time in jail. We need to change this. It isn't right for the victim to endure a lifetime of pain while their attacker only spends a couple of months or years in jail.

      I just wanted to say thank you all to the one's who have signed so far. We have reached 100. I didn't know if we could pull it off or not but we did. We still have 400 more to go but I think we can do it! If we got 100 we can get the rest. We have to get this signed so I can pass it off to the government and hopefully get a bill passed. Again, thank you to you 100 fabulous people!

      I have 4 young children that I am going insane with worry on how to protect them when they are not in my site! I would love to have something in place to TRULY punish those who do commit heinous acts against a child or helpless creature!!

      It is important to send the message that it is not okay to sexually abuse a child.....it affects that child for the rest of their life.....

      Because an adult knows the difference between right and wrong. And everyone knows that you should not harm a child.
