To add punishment for child abusers who cause a child's heart to stop.
This is important to me because I watched my step-daughter, a beautiful baby and an entire family almost ripped apart due to child abuse. Jasmine Burke was abused by her father, she suffers from severe traumatic brain injury. Jasmine's heart stopped six time before doctors could stabalize her. Her father faces minimal time for what he has done. I would like there to be a punishment that adds punishment for every time a childs heart stops in child abuse cases. Jasmine and her family will never have the normal life the Jasmine deserved. She deserved a chance to walk, talk, love and live. Today those are prayers that her family prays for her.
