house Bill H.R. 3627

Increased Federal Oversight of Child Abuse, with Greater Criminal Penalties

Argument in favor

Provides greater protections for children. Many child abuse laws in place at the state level are deficient. Child abusers deserve the harshest penalties Congress can provide.

Argument opposed

While child abuse is hideous, greater federal oversight thereof will not stop such acts from taking place, even if deficient laws are optimized.
