How can anyone quantify a childhood lost to sexual assault and exploitation?
That is the question I ask myself when I read about the recent decision by SCOTUS to limit damages payable to victims of child pornography.
Not only is there no justice in this country for the children victimized by these atrocities, there is also no legitimate attempt to provide financial compensation.
We do not want the burden?
We do not want the judicial red tape?
We are not asking the correct questions of ourselves and our federal government.
The question is simple and devastating–how much is the life of a child worth in this country?
And how do you put a price on justice?
Once again it is clear in America–Justice here is not blind to anything much except the rights of our most vulnerable citizens: our children.
