Did you know that in Federal cases convicted sex offenders still receive basic parental rights to biological children? Did you know that the offender still gets these rights despite having to be lifetime registered?  Did you know the age for a child to speak on their own behalf to a judge varies across states and not on the maturity level of that minor?  Did you know the offender in the majority of cases has restrictions on where they can work, how close they can live to churches and schools, and contact with stepchildren and all other minors, but they can still request custody and visitation of their biological children? 

Justice is off balance in these situations. When will it end? I believe all victims should be protected. I believe that ALL children should be safeguarded from these predators and abusive people. How can our government mandate that an offender may not have contact with minors and cannot live in certain places, yet still not strip rights to biological children from theses deviants? Does it make sense to you that the justice system says to these criminals you are not safe to be around minors but we will still give you a chance with your biological child? Yes I do believe not all children have the maturity to speak for themselves and whether they want contact with the offender. I also believe and know that not every child is the same and that some 10 year olds are more articulate and mature than other 10 year old children. I think this fact should also be taken into consideration. In TN the age a minor can speak for themselves is 12 and in CO the age is 18. This range between ages is grossly broad. I would like to se a standard age across the US and consideration for the feelings of more mature than their age children. 

My petition is to address the following issues:

1. Institute a standard age for minors to speak on their behalf across the US.

2. Do not automatically give basic parental rights to convicted sex offenders (especially when their crimes involve children).

3. Automatically strip parental rights from biological parents whom have been convicted as a sex offender in crimes involving children.

I firmly believe that when someone/anyone commits these heinous acts that they forfeit their constitutional rights. They become less human in my eyes. This petition is based very much close to home. This is my reality everyday and what I fight with everyday. MINE AND ALL CHILDREN DESERVE SAFETY, SECURITY AND PROTECTION! Together let’s change laws. Let’s protect ALL CHILDREN! Whether you believe rehab for these criminals is possible or not please ask yourself; Why should any child be put at risk of being harmed?
