This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition To forbid Theresa May to allow paedophiles and sex offenders to adopt.

Theresa May wants to allow vulnerable children to be exposed to possible sexual abuse. Children who are in care are extremely vulnerable and defenceless, most have come from a negative background and have already been through enough trauma.

More details

The reason children are in care is to protect them. Approximately 1000 paedophiles have reoffended despite being monitored by police. Any offender with a history of child sex abuse should be considered a risk to children's safety for the rest of their lives.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

It's already the case that sex offenders and child sex offenders are not allowed to adopt children. We're not sure what else you want the Government to do.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
