I was a Catholic once, but they did not care about me. A woman raped me as a child, then, 20 years later, bankrupted me for child support for a child she never told me about. Yet, she was beyond the statute of limitations for my rape which she admits to. There is such statute for me; YET

Bill 7408 is dead, which would have would allowed victims of childhood sexual assault to see their assailants criminally prosecuted. In the legislative hearing, I heard the Catholic Church whine about losing money if this law gets passed. It looks like they scared the legislature, because the Bill was not approved. However, my legislator promises an amendment to another bill to accomplish the same thing. Ask yours to support the same!

I've risen above the victimization, and have an established 501c3.

to write a song about a 14 year old victim of abuse who wants to heal; me.

Sounds like quite a story to me. Very good fiction. Get a life and find some other thing to blame your problems on.

Please, let's join forces, for the common good. Get your legislator to sponsor an amendment to add on another bill. It's not too late; mine already promises to do it, but your legislator asking makes it that much more likely.

If you cannot remember what happened or do not care within 3 years of your 18th birthday then it either did not happen or it was not really that traumatic. Every other tort must be brought within 3 years, because it is impossible to defend yourself from baseless allegations with the passage of time. Better for you looters I guess.
