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.
