Congressman Marino hold press conference to discuss the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act

Congressman Tom Marino will be holding a press conference on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 2:30 pm at the Selinsgrove Borough Council Chambers/Selinsgrove Library.  During this time he will discuss a bill he is sponsoring regarding the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act.  This bill encourages states to adopt a judicial mechanism to terminate specific parental rights based on clear and convincing evidence that a child was conceived through rape.  It offers increased protection to the victim and to the child who would otherwise be subjected to an upbringing in a traumatic and unhealthy environment and supports the premise that “rapists should not have custody rights.”  The public is invited to attend and show their support.
