Dreamcatchers For Abused Children Store

The Wisconsin state Senate Committee on Public Health, Human Services and Revenue will hold a hearing today on a bill authored by state Sen. Glenn Grothman (R) that would force the sate to say that “nonmarital parenthood” contributes to child abuse and neglect, and distribute official literature saying as much. His legislationwould add the bolded portions to Wisconsin state law:

Section 1. 48.982 (2) (g) 2. of the statutes is amended to read: 48.982 (2) (g) 2. Promote statewide educational and public awareness campaigns and materials for the purpose of developing public awareness of the problems of child abuse and neglect. In promoting those campaigns and materials, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.

Section 2. 48.982 (2) (g) 4. of the statutes is amended to read: 48.982 (2) (g) 4. Disseminate information about the problems of and methods of preventing child abuse and neglect to the public and to organizations concerned with those problems. In disseminating that information, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.




By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.

    It is almost unbelievable that a group of politicians can set on their throne and make this determination. My wife and I have 4 adopted daughters that are now grown. They all came from different abusive situations and are now productive beautiful citizens. One of my girls has even adopted. She and her husband have a son they adopted through DHS. For someone who has never gone through adoption to decide that a single parent contributes to child abuse is just ridiculous. There are many many single parents who are raising children as are divorced parents. Its so sad that this body of legislators decide to do this instead of helping see that more children get adopted even if its to single parents.
