Target: Ron Marsico, House Judiciary Committee Chairman
Goal: Give rape victims the right to prosecute their offenders, no matter how long ago the assault occurred.
Accused pedophiles may soon be brought to justice. A Pennsylvania bill would grant rape victims the opportunity to file lawsuits against their accused offenders, no matter how long ago the crimes occurred. Demand that lawmakers amend the statute of limitations and allow justice for all rape victims.
An amendment to the statute of limitations would open a temporary two-year window allowing older rape victims to file civil lawsuits against their accused abusers. This would identify accused offenders who have never faced charges and bring them to trial, possibly preventing future offenses.
Most sexual assault victims take decades to come forward, if they ever do. It is essential that they be met with the support of the law. Sign below to demand the expansion of the statute of limitations.
Dear Chairman Marsico,
A new bill advocates for sexual abuse survivors and could potentially prevent future assaults. The proposed temporary amendment to the statute of limitations would open the court to civil lawsuits from rape victims, no matter how long ago the assault occurred. All rape victims who have been unable to come forward deserve the right to justice.
Most rape victims take decades to come forward, if they do at all. It is not right to ignore a serious allegation simply because of time. A two-year amendment would allow older rape victims to file lawsuits against their accused abusers and seek the justice that they deserve.
We demand that you support this legislation for the safety and justice for all.
