For those who have not yet contacted their U.S. Senator in Washington, D.C. about the International Megan’s Law please do so immediately. Also, if you have already do so, we would encourage you to contact them again as they are returning from Spring Break tomorrow. Here is a sample of an email one of our members sent:
Dear Congressman (your senator here):
I know that you will be voting on Federal Bill HR4573 soon and would like to ask you to vote NO on this bill.
The reasoning behind my asking you to vote NO on this bill:
1) The constitutional ity of this bill, as it places further restrictions on those who have already served their mandated sentences
2) Well over 2.5 million people, including women and children, will negatively be affected by this legislation (there are over 769,000 citizens on the registry to date according to the NCMEC)
3) It is proven fact, through research and studies, that 1/3 of those listed on the sex offender registries are juveniles
4) As statistics prove, 95.5% of all those on the registry will NEVER re-offend. This legislation would permanently place restrictions on travel to well over 730,550 people (to date) who pose no harm to anyone.
5) Researchers have clearly stated, based on their peer reviewed studies, 95% of sexual offenses are committed within the family, their acquaintances or those having access to the children and never get reported, NOT by those having successfully paid their debt to society. This must not be ignored.
In closing, I ask that you please consider the aforementioned reasoning and that you VOTE NO on Federal Bill HR4573.
