End the Sexual Exploitation of Children sign now

Please forward to everyone on your email list. We hope to collect 5,000 signatures by April 20, 2006, GEMs first Day to End the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.





Support the Exploited Childrens Act of 2006





There are well over 400,000 youth exploited in the United States sex industry annually. The systems response to CSE victims has been one shadowed by much prejudice and double standards. According to statutory rape laws, as stated in the New York State Penal Code 130, a young person under the age of seventeen cannot legally give informed consent to sexual contact, yet, if the young person is deemed as a prostitute then not only is the youth considered to give consent, but will be charged with a violation or misdemeanor. Therefore, under one part of the penal code a young woman is a victim of statutory rape and protected from adult exploiters, under another she is considered a criminal.





The Exploited Childrens Protection Act will:


remedy the contradiction in the current penal code between a child prostitute and a victim of statutory rape


make it impossible for young people under the age of 18 to be charged with an act of prostitution,


treat the sexually exploited young women as victims instead of criminals


provide them with emergency and long-term services they need to exit the life
