What’s this magic line at 3 years older or less? Why not 3 years and 1 day or 5 days, 4 years, or 15 years? The determination should be based on maturity, education, and conscience consensus instead of magical numbers which mean nothing except how many breaths a person has taken.

If most of the laws today were in place 200 yrs ago, the majority of us wouldn’t be here today.
My Grandmother was pregnant at 15 with my father.
Could you imagine the size of the registry if these stupid laws had been in affect even 75 yrs ago?
Better yet, picture it in another 20 yrs. Because it ain’t goin’ away folks. They can bend it and reshape it, but they will never toss it!

My poor boyfriend who tragically died in a car accident would be on this ridiculous list if it existed back then. I was 17 and he was 21. Everybody loved him and supported our relationship. What changed? What’s in the water today that people have lost their marbles and can no longer use common sense? Can’t someone invent a pill that cures these people so they become smart again? This country is getting dumber by the minute. Somebody has to find a cure! Maybe, it’s aliens who are poisoning Human Beings? I have no other explanation.
