Jerry Sandusky Victimization Act
New Jersey Creating Victims Just Like Jerry Sandusky Did
TRENTON, NJ, MAY 6, 2013 – Citizens Against the Jerry Sandusky Victimization Act, also known as Senate Bill 2278, is announcing major developments today against the destructive legislation which threatens to further harm victims of sexual abuse from Pedophiles such as Jerry Sandusky.
On March 18, 2013 gay activists testified against sexual orientation change effort (SOCE) therapy for minors, using anecdotal evidence and position statements from mental health organizations, to outlaw its use in New Jersey. However, not one published study in peer-reviewed, scientific literature supported the claims made by such witnesses.
One of the witnesses, Brielle Goldani, lied about her experiences in a so-called “conversion therapy torture camp” in Ohio in 1997. Confirmed with the Ohio Secretary State and Attorney General, the camp “True Directions” never existed, except in the 1999 film “But I’m a Cheerleader” starring Drag queen RuPaul.
Youth who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or have unwanted same-sex attractions (SSA), experience homosexual feelings, in some cases, due to trauma, including sexual abuse by the likes of Pedophile Jerry Sandusky.
A 2012 study in the peer-reviewed, scientific journal Child Abuse and Neglect found that “Gay/lesbian respondents had higher odds of exposure to child abuse” and “exposure to victimization in early-life family and romantic relationships explains, in part, sexual orientation disparities in a wide range of mental health and substance use outcomes” compared to the general population.
Outcomes reported from adults who undergo SOCE, summarized in the peer-reviewed, scientific Journal of Human Sexuality (Vol. 1.), show that 100 years of research demonstrates that it is possible for some persons to change from homosexuality to heterosexuality; that such efforts do not invariably result in harm; and that homosexuals have greater risk factors for pathology than the general population.
S2278 was passed out of committee due to fraudulent testimony, insufficient anecdotal data on adolescent outcomes of SOCE, and inaccurate conclusions of adults who underwent SOCE. We therefore call on the New Jersey Senate to reconvene a new hearing, place witnesses under oath, and require an independent, objective scientific panel to review all of the research on SOCE outcomes before this bill advances through the Legislature.
Scientific research reveals that children are not simply born gay, and New Jersey victims deserve the right to receive treatment as the result of unwanted SSA brought on by Pedophiles such as Jerry Sandusky.
