This community is working to get legislation in place to protect minors from sexually abusive parents.
|My oldest daughter was raped by
her step father at the age of four. I involved Child
Protective Services, the prosecutor, and took my daughter
for counselling. Now I'm learning that the man that raped
my oldest daughter may still end up with visitation for
the daughter we had together, my youngest daughter. How
can this man's parental rights outweigh my innocent
child's rights to safety?
We are working to get legislation passed that if a parent has been found guilty or plead guilty in court or if DYFS (or a similar organization in another state) or NJ Cares (or a similar institution in another state that works with the courts) has substantiated sexual abuse, that said parent forfeits their "right" to visitation with their minor children. As of now, sexually abusive parents have more rights than innocent children. If you think that's wrong and would like to fight to protect these kids, please sign these petitions!
We have two petitions in circulation right now. They have a different audience, so signing both of them is important! Here are the petitions:
