Help Pass Senate Bill 1738—The PROTECT Our Children Act

There is nothing more disturbing than I child predictor to me! I can't wrap my head around how someone can find a child, esp. BABIES, sexually interesting. This sickens me and after this show on Oprah, I felt I had to do my part to get the word out!
This may be harsh to some but may view is that these creeps don't deserve to have a Life!!!
The pain and psychological suffering a child has to endure for the REST OF HIS/HER LIFE is unfathomable to me...and most of the time the predator gets a little more than a slap on the wrist.
PLEASE take time to contact your Local Senator...Oprah has made this as simple as possible to do~just copy and paste the letter into your senator's web form at!!!
from the Oprah Show~


PLEASE Help Protect Our Children!!!

Help Pass Senate Bill 1738—The PROTECT Our Children Act
Hundreds of thousands of children are victims of sexual abuse each year. Due to the sheer lack of resources, law enforcement is unable to follow up on the majority of leads they have.

The PROTECT Our Children Act will:

* Authorize over $320 million over the next five years in desperately needed funding for law enforcement to investigate child exploitation.
* Mandate that child rescue be a top priority for law enforcement receiving federal funding.
* Allocate funds for high-tech computer software that can track down Internet predators.

Act Now!
Your U.S. senators will be voting on the bill soon, so it is crucial you contact them immediately.
Go to to find contact information for the senators in your state. Search for your senator by name or state by clicking on the arrow from either dropdown menu. Contact information is provided here. To send an e-mail, click on "Web Form" below his or her name, and e-mail your letter to make a difference!

Call Your Senators
If you choose to contact your senators by phone, be sure to tell them, "Vote yes on Senate Bill 1738—The PROTECT Our Children Act."

Write to Your Senators
If you choose to write a letter, fax, telegram or e-mail, you may use the following sample letter—and modify it how you see fit.

Dear Senator:

I know that you believe, like I do, that we must do everything possible to protect children from sexual predators. That is why I am asking for your help.

Last year alone, U.S. law enforcement identified over 300,000 criminals who were trafficking in movies and pictures of young children being raped and tortured. Experts say that one in every three of these criminals has local child victims. Child pornography trafficking over the Internet has given us a trail of evidence that leads straight to their doorsteps, but the vast majority of these children will never be rescued because investigators are overwhelmed, outnumbered and underfunded.

As your constituent, I urge you to do everything in your power to pass the PROTECT Our Children Act (S. 1738, Biden-Hatch). This bipartisan legislation passed the House 415-2, but it is now the victim of petty partisan politics.

Now that we know where these children are and how to protect them, there is no excuse for the Senate to fail to take action this session.

Hi Stevie (my new lollishops pal) Thanks for sharing this- I sent a note to our senators. I saw this story on Oprah and was absolutely disgusted. I could NOT believe what has been going on. I volunteer at the National Centers for Missing & Exploited Children-this is a topic close to my heart. I was the keynote speaker for the Ride for missing children this year - here is the link- watch the video clip! Thanks! Melissa
