Abolish the age of consent laws!

This petition had 9 supporters

You can be punished criminally if you have sex under the age of consent, which throughout USA is between 16 and 18 depending on your state. You can also get quite a bit of prison time for having any sexual relations with someone under the age of consent, even if it is consensual. I propose the age of consent laws be abolished. Some say they help protect children from "predators". No, that's what rape and molestation laws are for, making overlapping laws doesn't fix anything.

Who is the government to say whether or not you can do this?
