Who rapes an innocent child, ESPECIALLY their OWN? Sickening. Melanie, I will gladly sign your petition, but would be more than happy to know where your dad and uncle hang these days... You'll get a 2-for-2 deal here!

There are UN Conventions that prohibit Child Abuse and maltreatment. Various countries have domesticated these laws. Efforts are being made to justify these national laws in the face of hostile and conflicting traditions and adverse religious injunctions.

There are UN Conventions that prohibit Child Abuse and maltreatment. Various countries have domesticated these laws.

Reason and understanding are beginning to wear down centuries of stubborn adherence to inordinate beliefs about the status of children in homes, communities and societies. We have to realise that Children represent the innocence of humanity. If we fail to protect this innocence by abusing children, we shall lose our claim to decent and compassionate humanity. GOVERNOR CUOMO HAS TO RESPOND POSITIVELY TO THE WORLD-WIDE CALL TO CLAMP DOWN ON HEARTLESS ABUSERS OF CHILDREN IN HIS DOMAIN.

I am a survivor of childhood sexual and physical abuse and I can say whithout a doubt that MOST children DO NOT TELL! Its not until we are much much older that we begin to see that it isn't our fault! Abuse of any kind can NOT be tolerated.

May I ask when did you actually have the courage to tell someone you were abused, and how old were you, did something happen to trigger the memories or were they always at the back of your mind??

Every child deserves to be protected from sexual abuse. It starts now to protect and secure an end to this horrific crime against children.

We must all work together on an international network to protect every child in every country in every town! Gov Guomo, you have to stop abuse to children and bring child predators to justice. Thanks for everyone who have worked on this vital human rights issue. Change starts with each person to report child molesters.

Monsters perpetrating unthinkable horrendous crimes and now being protected by an equally monstrous system and a pure evil law. Predators should be flayed alive and burned.

While I don't know anyone who has experienced sexual abuse, I know very well from, e.g., watching true crime television programs, that it occurs all the time. Like the person below said so eloquently, "protect the children."
