Tell Government and the Travel Industry: No More TSA Pat-Downs for Kids

From PRNewswire-:
Traveler advocate We Won't Fly is organizing a mass 'Call Flood' campaign to force the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to stop touching children, as they did to 6-year-old Anna Drexel last week. The campaign is focused on TSA administrator John Pistole, President Barack Obama, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano, Disneyland and other travel industry participants that serve families.

The goal of the campaign is to highlight the immorality of TSA pat-downs of minors, force the TSA to immediately and permanently halt all touching of minors and encourage travel industry players to join us.

In a December 2010 interview, expert in the fight against child sexual abuse Ken Wooden said that TSA patdowns could 'desensitize children to inappropriate touch and ultimately make it easier for sexual offenders to prey on our children.'
