START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Nov 24, 2006
Our children are watching us live, and what we are shouts louder than anything we can say. -Wilfred A. Peterson

Mandatory Life Sentence for Child Predators - Follow this link to sign this petition asking our government to amend the laws regarding the sentences of convicted Pedophiles & Child Pornography Producers. These criminals have violated the most helpless members of our society. They steal their innocence in a violent way that leave scars that last a lifetime. We ask that these perpetrators receive mandatory life sentences, as this is the same sentence they have given to their victims. Research has shown pedophiles as having an average of over 300 victims by the time they reach they age of 35. They have very poor capacity for rehabilitation and are seen as life-long, and at high risk for re-offence. Releasing a child predator upon society to destroy more innocent lives is wrong and needs to be stopped. Help us put a stop to the victimization of our children. Every child, in every society, has the right to grow up in an environment, which is dedicated to his or her protection

Support Key Welfare Principles - In order to truly move poor families out of poverty and into self-sufficiency, we must shift the welfare reauthorization debate away from "more work &emdash; less money" to one that emphasizes education, training and increased child-care funding. Urge your senators to support these key welfare principles. Things are very hard for most single mothers unless they are fortunate enough to have family that can help them. In my area the average uneducated mother makes $6.00 per hour. Child care costs an average of $125.00 per week. So after taxes and child care she bring home about $75 per week! How do you support a family on $75 a week? You can't. Key Welfare principles would allow mothers to become better educated therefore allowing them higher wages and help with day care expenses. To a struggling single mother this could literally change their lives!

Stop Child Abuse by Religious Leaders - Sexual abuse is perpetrated by all manner of people on those that are powerless or are too trusting. It is in no way specific to one church or to religious institutions. It festers and continues when those who abuse are not reported and prosecuted. All too often, religious leaders, when confronted with abuse, enter into confidential financial settlements that leave the community unaware of the crime and the perpetrator free to abuse again -- sometimes harming dozens of victims.

Bush Administration Suspends Rule Making Prescription Drugs Safer for Children - The Bush administration has decided to suspend a rule that requires pharmaceutical companies to test whether their products are safe for children. The change by the Food and Drug Administration rolls back a 1997 rule implemented by the Clinton Administration that ensured doctors have the information they need when prescribing prescription drugs to children.

Doctors' groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, blasted the Bush administration decision. They claimed that allowing drug companies to decide when they will test their products for safety in children will make it more difficult for doctors to judge which drugs -- and at what dosages -- are safe for children. Robert Ward, a spokesman for the American Academy of Pediatrics, gave the example of Priscoline, a drug for hypertension which was given to infants in dosages based on estimates. Those dosages were later found to be strong enough to stop infants' hearts. Click Here to take action
