Leah Bennett started this petition to Australian Federal Parliament

The law passed in 2000 states that cases of rape included objects other than genitalia. This was great, however, historic cases dating back prior to 2000 are subject to the law at the time of the act. The average child sexual abuse victim discloses 20 years after the act. This is leaving pedophiles who do get caught through historic allegations in a legal loop hole. Even when it's agreed that is was rape, the legal system can't charge for that. I was raped as a 7 year old child in 1997, because it was 3 years prior to the law changing, there is no significance to charge for rape. I want this changed. Even if it can never apply to my case. Please sign this petition to have rape charges backdated to before the year 2000 to include rape with objects other than genitalia.
