What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Mandatory life sentences for child sexual abuse

People who commit child sexual abuse should face life in prison.

More details

I personally believe that it should already be a law due to the amount of future emotional trauma caused by such acts, being sexually offended as a child must be a very traumatic thing to go through and can damage a person for life and so we should give them the acceptable punishment of life in prison.
