NEW YORK STATE ABUSE BILL DIES
Catalyst July/August Issue 2010
For the fifth consecutive year, a bill that would amend the statute of limitations for sexually abused minors has died in the New York State legislature. Unlike other years, this year’s bill covered public institutions, as well as private ones like the Catholic Church.
Predictably, because the legislation included public schools, the bill was met with strong opposition from unions representing the public school establishment.
This is a victory for civil liberties and a loss for the vindictive forces constantly seeking to plunder the Catholic Church.
