Increase the minimum jail term for rape

This petition had 155 supporters

Rape is arguably the most disgusting crime out there. It is degrading, humiliating and terrorising for those who go through the ordeal. The current jail terms for a convicted rapist can be as low as 5 years, maybe even 3 with "good behaviour". This is not enough for a person who has ruined the life of another. I aim to increase this. 

If this can get to parliament, awareness of rape can be raised. The rise in minimum jail term can also prove as a deterrent for future offenders. 5 years is not enough time for a person to serve in prison after committing such a heinous crime.
