PE01614: Adult Consensual Incest (ACI)

People Communities

Petitioner: Richard Morris



Date Lodged:

01 August 2016
Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish
Government to amend the law against adult consensual incest, to provide:
that an offence occurs only where one of the participants (even if
consenting) was under the age of 21 ; for those who have previously been
convicted  of incest when both participants were consenting  and over
21 years of age to have any sentences received ended; for convictions to
be removed from criminal records of any individuals previously
convicted and for a compensation scheme to be established.

If Abraham the Patriarch of
Judaism who the Bible says married his  step-sister Sarah, came to live
in Scotland today, would everyone agree that he and his wife should go
to  prison? In Israel he would not go to prison because ACI is not
illegal there now.

Many children are born with
birth defects because their parents married  late, or smoked or drank
alcohol whilst pregnant, should we put these parents in prison for
creating sick children?
Is it fair to jail only ACI people for
their tiny contribution to the total number of children born with birth
defects, when the vast majority of birth defect cases are born to
non-ACI parents? What good comes from such imprisonment?
than half the people on the planet live in about 35 countries where ACI 
is legal.  If ACI is so bad for society, what are the terrible social
problems caused by ACI in countries (or states in the case of New Jersey
and Rhode Island) where ACI is not illegal like: Argentina, Armenia,
Azerbaijan, Belgium, Brazil, People’s Republic of China, Estonia,
France, Georgia, India, Israel, Italy (if no scandal is caused), Ivory
Coast, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg,
Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, New Jersey, Pakistan, Portugal,
Rhode Island, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Thailand,Turkey, Ukraine?
legalizing ACI and not wasting tax payers’ money on prosecuting and
sentencing ACI people to jail for years, save a great deal of  pubic
money which could then be used to better educate all people about the
risks of having a child with birth defects and how to avoid them?
children have to be taught to hate, and racism, incestophobia,
homophobia, and class hatred are learned and become a sort of mass
hysteria, conditioned into us, how do we de-institutionalise such hatred
and mass paranoia?

Thank you to all the people involved in
organising the petition, including Scottish Parliamentary staff and to
all those who signed.

Today a country that is famous for leading the
world in human rights, France was attacked by terrorists.Shame on them.
France legalized ACI in 1810 becoming the world leader in human rights.
today, Scotland and other countries that still make ACI a crime, lag
behind in the field of human rights. Please vote to make difference.
