Dr. Oz calls for bill to help child sex abuse victims to seek justice as adults
By KENNETH LOVETT
Advocates for a bill to make it easier for child sex abuse victims to seek justice as adults got help Monday from television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Oz on his show spoke to actor Corey Feldman, who says he was abused as a child, before launching into a plea for New York to pass the Child Victims Act, which has stalled in the Republican-controlled Senate.
Oz asked his viewers to call state Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, whose picture he posted, “to go after him” and push him for a vote on the bill.
“I have emailed him and I have called him and I’ve gotten no response so far, that’s why I need you to help me,” he said. “Let’s get one state, a big state, a state that’s sort of a bellwether, shapes the rest of the country in some way, to get this done. Call them to get it started.”
