Stop Jessica's LAW

Stop expansion of the death penalty!  Contact your state legislators to defeat attempts to expand the death penalty for child sex offenders.  This is being considered in multiple states, Texas, Tennessee, and more.

The death penalty for child sex offenders will not solve this problem.  90% of molestation occurs in families and this type of crime goes largely unreported.  It is feared that with a death penalty component that this will make reporting even more unlikely, or that the child victims may be murdered to cover up the crime.

Please express your concern to your legislators if this is happening in your state!
