Sexual abuse and trafficking against a minor is absolutely one of the most heinous crimes someone could commit. Sexual child abuse is a type of maltreatment, violation, and exploitation that refers to the involvement of the child in sexual activity to provide sexual gratification or financial benefit to the perpetrator. It includes contact for sexual purposes, molestation, statutory rape, prostitution, pornography, exposure, incest, or other sexually exploitative activities. What happens to kids during childhood shapes who they become as adults. Children living through abuse and violence, unnecessarily suffer the ill effects of this trauma for the rest of their lives. 

Sadly being sexually abused is a reality for far too many children in the USA. In FY16 alone, Child Protective Services agencies substantiated, or found strong evidence to indicate that, 57,329 children were victims of sexual abuse. Really take a moment and think about that number.

"Convicted pedophile serving 1,000-year sentence gets parole" A man who had collected over 26,000 files of child pornography released on bail. “The evidence demonstrated that Mallory knowingly and intentionally sought out, gathered, downloaded and saved these images and videos of children being raped, tortured and sexually exploited,” said District Attorney Herb Cranford in a press release. This is just ONE of many of stories like this, someone committed a disgusting crime and gets to rest comfortably in their home until trail. Possibly hurting more victims in the process.

We need to protect the next generation!

We need to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. 

We need to stop and destroy the culture that is trying to normalize Pedophilia(which IS sexual abuse and assault) 

We need to fight back against those who partake in and aid Human Trafficking. Physically AND digitally.

People who commit these crimes should not get a slap on the wrist but should be tried to the harshest degree of the law.

Everyone please take time out of your day and read 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 110—SEXUAL EXPLOITATION AND OTHER ABUSE OF CHILDREN The link will be below under sources. We need more strict laws to ensure these people are not walking our streets and hurting our children. 

I am one that has always believed in giving someone a second chance, but when it comes to the little children of our families and our nation, I say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Please sign.
