Reality Check, Please!
The New York State Legislature is considering a bill that would lift the statute of limitations on civil suits concerning child sexual abuse. The sponsor of the legislation had this to say:
“Senator Thomas K. Duane, a Manhattan Democrat and the bill’s lead sponsor in the Senate, said he was “extremely optimistic” about its chances.
“He said that opponents’ claims of unfairness were not compelling, and that warnings of bankruptcy for religious institutions, which he dismissed as unlikely, missed the point.
“It’s not about money,” he said. “It’s about giving people the right to seek justice.”
It’s not about money?
