Lets make harsher more severe punishments for child abusers...Lets make "Kates Law"

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". >>> Since the inception of this petition, sweet Baby Kate fell victim to her injuries and passed away.  Today would have been her sixth birthday.  I would like to see this come to light once again and not have her struggle be in vain.
