WASHINGTON DC- On Tuesday January 16, 2018, Kyle Stephens, a former USA gymnast, gazed at Larry Nassar, ex-USA Gymnastics doctor in the Michigan courtroom to tell him that the abuse has to end.

Nassar accepted the fact that he would use his medical position to sexually abuse young females. More than 140 girls have addressed Dr. Nassar in court about all the abuse he has committed. Apart from being a sexual abuser, he also has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography and on Wednesday January 24, 2018, he was sentenced to 175 years in prison.

Most of the victims that were abused blamed Michigan State University and the USA Gymnastics organization for not taking actions as complaints were being given about Dr. Nassar.

“Michigan State University, the school I loved and trusted, had the audacity to tell me that I did not understand the difference between sexual assault and a medical procedure. That master manipulator took advantage of his title, he abused me, and when I found the strength to talk about what had happened, I was ignored and my voice was silenced.” Amanda Thomashow, a former MSU student and patient of Dr. Nassar stated.

Ex-Olympian Jordyn Wieber has continued to live her life not as a victim anymore, but has an achiever and a hard working gymnast.

“But even though I’m a victim, I do not and will not live my life as one. I’m an Olympian. Despite being abused, I worked so hard and managed to achieve my goal.” Jordyn Wieber states.

Karry Perry, USA Gymnastics President accepts the resignations of the board of directors and to make changes in the organization.

“We support their decisions to resign at this time. We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization. As the board identifies its next chair and fills the vacant board positions, we remain focused on working every day to ensure that our culture, policies and actions reflect our commitment to those we serve.” Kerry Perry states.
