RULING ON ADULTERY LAW APPLAUDED

SHARE RULING ON ADULTERY LAW APPLAUDED

Inasmuch as PTA supports solid families, we applaud the recent ruling of U.S. Magistrate Ronald Boyce upholding the constitutionality of Utah's 1887 law that makes adultery a criminal offense.

Adultery victimizes our society's innocent children. The pain resulting from this self-indulgent behavior ripples out from the home into all aspects of our communities and society at large.Adultery takes love and security from a child that can never be replaced. Children from marriages shattered by adultery bear the consequences for adults who have failed to take responsibility for their personal conduct and have abdicated responsibility for the care and nurturing of their children and spouse.

We encourage U.S. District Judge David Sam to adopt Magistrate Boyce's recommendations upholding this law.
