GOP Lawmaker Introduces Bill Mandating Death Penalty for Child Rape After Seeing Epstein Docs

via Fox News

New Mexico legislator Stefani Lord is advocating for the reinstatement of the death penalty for individuals convicted of certain sex crimes against children.

Her bill, HB 109, is influenced by the revelations from documents related to the sex trafficking operations of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Lord’s proposal would mandate the death penalty for specific child sex offenses, and she aims to raise the protected age from 13 to 18. (Trending: GOP Rep. Mace Clashes Directly With Hunter Biden At Hearing)

Lord said, “When I got elected, I was horrified that every time the legislature tried to pass a soft-on-crime bill, I would say, ‘Well, can we exempt pedophiles and rapists?’ And every time the Democrats said no.”

“I was horrified, so I went back and said, ‘You know what? There is no cure for pedophilia. There’s no cure for these rapists. So we might as well do like Florida did and give them the death penalty,’” she continued.

“There is no life. There’s no option for life in prison. You rape a child that is under 18, then you get the death penalty,” declared Lord.

While she recognizes the bill’s challenges in passing, she emphasizes the need to combat leniency towards pedophiles and child rapists.

“I would gladly hand this bill over to a Democrat if they could get this passed. I have no problem with that. I don’t need to take credit for it. The issue is we need to stop the sex trafficking. We need to stop that. There’s so much leniency against pedophiles and people that rape children. This needs to stop,” explained the lawmaker.

“We have to draw the line. We have to draw a line in the sand and say enough is enough. If you do this, you’re going to get the death penalty,” she repeated.
