-- -- Bill O'Reilly reporting tonight from Phoenix Arizona thanks for watching us.
It is the USA really becoming a nation that embraces barbarism.
That is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo.
As we reported earlier this week a number of judges and politicians are doing things that harm defenseless children and babies in the -- To me as an American that is on acceptable.
If you -- -- her children.
I am going to come after you.
As you -- -- a factor as long advocated for Jessica's law.
Back in 20059.
Year old Jessica ones were brutally raped and murdered in Florida.
By a convicted sex offender named John Cooley who never should have been out on the street.
The Justice Department in Florida allowed -- to escape a fair punishment for his past keys.
After that murder.
Florida Texas and a number other states quickly passed laws that sentence child rapists prison for decades sometimes even for life.
But some states were resistant so we began to move.
The factors campaign proved to be very effective with 43 states eventually passing some version of Jessica's law.
Just this month two of the holdouts New Jersey and Idaho begun to come around.
On February 12 in Boise.
A bill was introduced that would give child rapists and Idaho a minimum sentence of 25 years we expect the good people of Idaho to demand their politicians.
Pass that bill.
Governor Butch Otter told us he will sign.
In New Jersey the state assembly voted yesterday.
To pass Jessica's law.
We believe the senate will go along and Governor Christie has told us he will sign that bills saw.
That leaves just five states.
That continue to refuse to protect their children they are.
White and Colorado.
New York State -- -- -- -- and -- -- hopeless situation it's run by far left zealots who couldn't care less about children.
I feel sorry for the good people of Vermont their state has been flooded by outsiders who can now vote.
Turning the green Mountain State into a secular Paris.
Why is similar that is far left as you can get in fact in the aloha state.
They have tougher laws protecting animals.
Then protecting children.
It is absolutely.
In Colorado we have yet another troubling situation.
This -- Colorado house speaker mark -- -- is doing everything he -- to make sure Jessica's law does not pass.
-- -- has been invited on this broadcast but is too cowardly.
To -- bought.
He is a true villain.
Just to show you how sleazy this guy -- A version of Jessica's law was recently introduced.
Into the Colorado legislature.
But for -- -- you know sent it.
To the house state veterans and military affairs committee.
Because he -- that committee.
Would kill a bill which it fit.
I live in Colorado for two years it's a beautiful state but like Vermont it is changed drastically.
Because outsiders have moved it.
But the good people of Colorado the good people.
Should now rise up against -- -- rock state legislature.
Right now if you rape a child in Colorado you can be sentenced to four years in prison.
That's just horrifying.
Now out of the judges.
The reason we have to have Jessica's law is that a few and I mean a few American judges do not see the sexual exploitation of children as a serious problem.
We saw that in Vermont.
And in New Jersey we made a major case out of the Supreme Court -- Failing to take any action at all -- -- a woman who ingested cocaine.
Two days before giving birth.
The five Jersey justices basically telling the world the garden state will not protect babies in the -- Again on acceptable.
But perhaps is the most egregious situation is -- one in New York State.
Governor Andrew Cuomo will not get behind Jessica's law we've tried for months to get his attention on the issues he refuses to do anything.
If you look at Cuomo's resident that's not surprising.
He does not seem to care about the safety of children.
In fact he's behind a proposed new law that would allow abortions in New York State to be performed at any time.
For pretty much any reason.
Cuomo wants to decriminalize.
All abortion activity.
That means if a twelve year old girl goes in for an abortion the State of New York will not investigate.
How the girl got pregnant obviously a twelve year old seeking an abortion has been the victim of statutory rate.
Now what can you do.
Well you can contact Governor Cuomo and ask him not to pursue this extreme abortion -- And also to get the -- Jessica's law.
If you got a billoreilly.com.
We have all the information for you you can do it on the net and you can tell -- That his behavior.
Toward children is barbaric because eighties.
Again the information contact governor Andrew Cuomo.
Is on billoreilly.com.
As a Roman Catholic -- emotional matter and if there is indeed a judgment day he'd better bring a good lawyer.
Talking points is not like to pinpoint Americans in this way I have nothing against Cuomo or speaker for and -- in Colorado.
But I do not want my -- To be a place of barber resolved.
And I will fight against that.
There comes a point where are all good citizens.
Must stand up for the most defenseless among us.
And that's -- number.
