End New York's Law Protecting Rapists Of Children

I was a victim of childhood abuse starting at sixteen months, that's right, I know all about it. No one intervened, no family, neighbors, and I was told if I spoke about it outside the home I would get it worse. Finally when I was moving out at the age of 19, my mother went after me with a knife, my father finally intervened only to tell my mother that I was a legal adult and could put her in prison. I should have. They had three children and I was the only one that was called a living abortion and feared coming home to the point that I became obsessive compulsive. When I became pregnant, I had the good sense to seek counseling so that I would not repeat the same mistakes. Childhood abuse can make you stronger; but it is wrong, it mames you for life. Please sign this petition!
