This petition had 2,375 supporters


I stand with Dominican people AGAINST the new Penal Code that violates basic human rights while it 

ELIMINATES punishment for violence against women

DOES NOT Consider domestic violence a grave offense UNLESS the victim dies or is disabled for at least 90 days

REDUCES the punishment for incest-based crimes

REDUCES the punishment for sexual harassment

CONCEALS the rape of a minor

CRIMINALIZES abortion under ALL circumstances, even if the mother's life is at risk

Recognizes as FEMICIDE only those murders committed by sexual partners or ex-partners
