DA's office: Young crime victims need special holiday

MOULTRIE — This year the Colquitt County District Attorney’s office will aim to bring a little joy to the lives of children who are victims of child abuse, sexual abuse, and children who have witnessed a parent’s victimization.

Many of these children have been removed from abusive homes, placed in foster care or living in domestic violence shelters, according to Karen Ambrose, victims advocate at the DA’s office.  

Each child will receive a brand new bike from the “Anne's Bicycles for Children” Foundation, Ambrose said. In addition, they will receive a stuffed teddy bear and a stocking full of goodies.

The District Attorney’s office has compiled a list of children who have a wish list. If you would  like to donate a gift card or give a monetary donation to fulfill the wish list, please send your donations and make checks payable to: District Attorney’s Office, P.O. Box 2498, Moultrie, GA 31776. Gifts need to arrive by Dec. 17.

For more information, please contact Ambrose at (229) 616-7476.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
