Harsher Rape Sentences sign now

To All Who Reads This,

Stories of rape and molest comes to our hearing nearly all the time. We pity the victims, and their family members but do nothing of it. One day, I received a heart-breaking story from a young girl.
This is how the email goes:

On the 28th October 1999, a young 12-year old girls future was completely shattered. She was raped and almost stabbed to death. She sustained multiple stab wounds in the back, chest and stomach as well as the face. One of the stabs she received penetrated her spine and she is now paralyzed for life. This little girl is my cousin.
I went to see her in hospital on Friday. When I saw her, she was lying on her side and all I could see was her stitched face. Because her whole little body was riddled with stab wounds, she is unable to find a comfortable position. When I asked her how she was doing, she whispered: I am sore, I am sore. She asked her mother to turn her over on the other side, and as I helped her mother to do so, I saw that her whole throat was covered in the most terrible blue and deep purple bruises. Her rapist tried to shut her up when she was screaming. When that did not help, he tried to stab her to death. All I can say is thank God she is alive.
The reason for this email is plain and simple. The South African judicial system is up to mugger, and corruption and discrimination is rife. No justice will be brought to this case. Give it a couple of years, and the rapist (who was caught I might add) will be out on parole in a couple of months. In the meantime, one beautiful little girls life has been changed. Not only does she have to live with this memory, but she has to be reminded of it every single day in the form of her paralysis. The South African government wants to implement something called chemical castration, where they inject men with a chemical that decreases their sex drive. This is NOT good enough. Rape is not in the male member, but in the mind.
I know this happens to people all over the world on an hourly basis, but this time, it has hit too close to home and I CANNOT and I repeat, CANNOT stand by and do nothing about it. Therefore, I would like your help in signing this petition for a harsher sentence for rape. Life imprisonment might be a good suggestion.

There is more to this letter, but you have read those that is important. I decided to help her out by putting her petition on the web. If you feel sorry for this little girl and her cousin, or if you just want to see justice made, please sign the petition.
As soon as we have enough signatures, this petition will be forwarded to [email protected] and to government officials. In hope that we too, can increase the rape sentence in our countries.
Thank you to all who signs this. Your signature has made a lot of difference. Just one grain of rice can tip the scale and the same applies to this.

    I believe rape is one of the most terrible crimes that can be commited. Any punishment that can be given is too good for that sort of monster.
