No Penn State Repeat: Not Reporting Child Abuse Should Be a Crime

Background | From Petition Site

At Penn State, Joe Paterno, a respected and beloved football coach, failed to report instances of sexual abuse performed by one of his coaches, Jerry Sandusky, to the police. Essentially, he knowingly worked with a child molester for years and left him in charge of innocent children. Fortunately, Pennsylvania is now considering bills that would hold people accountable for this type of abuse, but what about the rest of the children in the US?

Sex abusers lurk in places where children thrive. Adults should have a moral obligation to make sure that children are kept safe from these kinds of dangers. However, states must implement legal action as well.

It is time for the law to pick up where humanity has left off. Urge your governor to pass stronger laws about reporting child sex abuse today. Save countless numbers of children from suffering at the hands of sex abusers.


Petition Language

Dear (Your State Governor),

Children are helpless and innocent to the evils of the world and trust adults to keep them safe. Unfortunately, some adults choose to betray that trust in the worst possible way: sexual abuse.

It is completely unacceptable for someone to have knowledge of sexual abuse and not report it to the police. People need to be kept accountable for knowing this type of vital information.

(Your Comments Here)

If someone has knowledge of child abuse, they need to report it as soon as possible. I urge you to pass stronger laws regarding the reporting of child sex abuse.
