Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled
The laws need to be changed regarding mental, emotional and verbal abuse;
Physical and sexual abuse are against the law, and the laws need to be changed in order to make mental, emotional, and verbal abuse also against the law;
If we can change the laws for distracted driving, and to legalize weed, the issue of mental, emotional and verbal abuse has to be taken as seriously;
Just because you can’t see the marks that mental, emotional, and verbal abuse leave on the victim doesn’t mean it isn’t as important;
A bruise, a broken arm, and a cut heal after weeks, however the scars that emotional, mental, and verbal abuse leave may never heal, especially when we keep the stigma that the only abuse that holds the abuser accountable is physical and sexual abuse.
We, the undersigned, citizens Of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to change the laws in order to make emotional, mental and verbal abuse the same as physical abuse within our laws and to name the changes ‘’Daniel Justin’s Law’’.
