Ban Child Sex Dolls

Right now, teachers, coaches, babysitters, and neighbors, in every town in America, can purchase lifelike, anatomically correct dolls designed to simulate sex with a child. And it’s perfectly legal. These sick dolls are being imported into the United States and other countries. British police have seized more than 100 already in the UK, and authorities have found that the people buying them usually have child pornography too. Sign this petition to ban the sale and distribution of child sex dolls! These child sex dolls can normalize a pedophile’s behaviors, emboldening them to harm children, as is often the case with those who view child pornography. According to the CDC, 1 in 5 children are sexually abused. One child is too many. Our elected officials need to protect children. That’s why Congressman Dan Donovan from New York is introducing legislation that will ban the distribution and sale of dolls that encourage child abuse. Show your support for this legislation by signing this petition, and help protect America’s children!

Attorney General Janet T. Mills: Prosecute Justin DiPietro, Courtney Roberts, and Elisha DiPietro in Connection with the Death of Ayla Reynolds.

Background On the morning of December 17, 2011, Justin DiPietro reported his 20-month old daughter Ayla Reynolds missing. After spending the day with Ayla December 16, Justin claimed he put her to bed at 8 p.m., and she was gone when he woke up in the morning. Ayla had lived in Justin’s home just 59 days. Ayla Reynolds photos linkAyla Reynolds news archives Two other adults, his sister Elisha DiPietro and his girlfriend Courtney Roberts, were in the house that night.  Justin and Courtney claimed to have slept in his basement bedroom, while Elisha claimed to have slept in her own bedroom, with her own daughter, across the hall from the bedroom Ayla normally shared with Elisha’s daughter. They insisted it was a normal night, and none of them saw or heard anything. The Investigation Investigators concluded Ayla was not kidnapped and she did not leave the house on her own accord.  They determined that foul play befell her in the house. They announced they did not expect to find Ayla alive. Some of the critical evidence included Ayla’s blood in various rooms in the house both upstairs and downstairs.  Unofficial crime scene linkThe case for Ayla blood evidence link That blood was found in baby Ayla’s bedroom on a doll; it was found in the family living room on the sofa; downstairs, where Justin and Courtney alleged to have slept unaware there was a fist-size stain of Ayla’s blood on the sheets and mattress, her blood was splattered on the wall next to the bed and on the floor. There was also blood in a pair of Justin’s shoes near the bed.  A blue plastic tote contained a sheet investigators said was used to clean up some of Ayla’s blood. Some of the blood found in the house contained saliva, indicating projectile vomiting and/or blunt force trauma. Two vehicles were parked in the DiPietro driveway. The closest to the road belonged to Courtney. The other vehicle belonged to Justin. Inside Justin’s vehicle, police found Ayla’s car seat stained with her blood. Ayla’s vomit was also present in Justin’s car. Police have searched for Ayla’s body but have yet to locate it. Justin, Courtney, and Elisha all deny knowledge of Ayla’s whereabouts. The Search for Ayla Justin DiPietro’s false report of a missing baby set off the most extensive and expensive missing child investigation in Maine’s history, costing the citizens more than $500,000.  Justice delayed is justice denied - William E. Gladstone Despite the passage of six years, there have been no arrests in the death of Ayla Reynolds or its cover-up. Trista Reynolds, Ayla’s mother, and her family, suffer with each day that passes and justice for Ayla is not forthcoming.  Please sign and share our petition seeking justice for Ayla now.

Petition to American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines

Airlines: consider breast pump/milk as a medical device

I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on August 1, 2017. Like many American moms, I returned to work after 6 weeks leave (and my job requires air travel). I did not want to compromise my job or breastfeeding my daughter, so I wanted to do my best to make both work! I quickly realized with American Airlines and Southwest that this would be difficult because a breast pump and milk is not viewed as "medically necessary" by these companies. I want this petition to change their minds and allow breastfeeding moms to bring on their medical device in addition to their carry on and personal item...because being a working, breastfeeding mom away from her baby is difficult as is. It is distasteful to profit from a breastfeeding mother because we are not traveling with our babies. Here are some facts about the legitimate MEDICAL benefits of breast milk: Breast milk boosts the baby's immune system, fighting various infections. Breast milk reduces the risk of disease for the baby later in life. Breast milk can be used to treat many ailments (skin rash/cuts, cradle cap, eye infections..) Breastfeeding can reduce the mother's risk of getting ovarian and breast cancer.  Breastfeeding lowers the risk of SIDS. If a mother is unable to pump or breastfeed, she risks becoming engorged which can lead to mastitis. Mastitis can cause symptoms such as an ill feeling, fever of 101+, pain/burning sensation in breast. Please sign this petition to encourage airlines to include breast pumps & breast milk in their list of medical devices not counted as a passenger's 2 item limit. And for the airlines that claim to recognize breast pumps as medical devices, please do regular sensitivity trainings so your employees no longer misinform mothers carrying these devices. Thank you for supporting new mom's ambitions to breastfeed and have a career/travel!
