“A woman who was sexually assaulted at a Sydney girls home in the 1960s has told a Royal Commission she thinks about killing herself every day.
Ms Mulquiney said there has not been a day where she does not think about killing herself but she keeps going for her “beautiful” children and grandchildren, the Daily Telegraph reports.”
I feel so deeply for this woman who is now 59. To suffer for decades, from abuse she should never have been subjected to.
Severe childhood abuse, can give you a lifetime sentence, and yet the abusers, aren’t given lifetimes sentences. They are often not sent to prison at all, or given sentences that do not reflect in any way the devastation their victim(s), will suffer, often for decades, or a lifetime. Victims, often result from the abuse in having mental health illnesses developing, relationships are affected, quality of life, severely affected.
Even when these child abusers are given lifetime sentences, due to ‘choosing’ to being repeat offenders, who have committed severe acts of child rape, they are appealing and being let out early. Because their ‘human rights’, are more important. And they very often go on to re-offend and more children are severely abused and more lifetimes sentences of suffering occur.
How is that justice?
How is that morally okay?
How is that wise?
And then society often tells these abuse victims, to ‘get over it, ‘move on’, ‘stop living in the past’, ‘let it go’. As if it is choice.
Victims, didn’t have a choice when abused. Victims don’t have a choice about getting mental health illnesses.
And yet society, treats them worse than the sex offenders.
