Mike Pence, Governor of Indiana

The child sexual abuse laws need to be changed to include more non-contact sexual abuse. This kind of abuse is still sexual abuse. It still affects the child in a similar way, causing fear and shame in a child, not to mention the long term effects on their emotional and mental health. The law needs to include showing pornography to a child as sexual abuse and include forcing or encouraging a child to watch or hear sexual acts as sexual abuse too.

This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. These forms of sexual abuse cannot be accepted in the government laws. Currently, Indiana law does not recognize these as sexual abuse. Children need and deserve protection. Those who commit these crimes, which is what they are no matter what the law currently says, deserve punishment and the child deserves a safe way out. The child deserves better.
