Child Abuse Law Issues

Child Abuse Issues (Dec 13, 2011)

Senate Committee Health, Education, Labor and Pensions | Children and Families

Witnesses testified at a Senate hearing on existing child abuse laws and ways to improve reporting requirements. Witnesses talked about personal stories of abuse, the emotional damage abuse inflicts on victims and their families, the barriers and reluctance of some adults to report suspected or known child abuse, ongoing federal, state, and local efforts to combat child abuse, and whether existing reporting requirements were working.  The hearing follows allegations of child sexual abuse at Pennsylvania State University and the failure to report these alleged crimes to law-enforcement authorities. Only 18 states currently required all adults to report suspected child abuse.

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.
Educate Yourself--Learn the Facts--It may Just Save a Child's Life!!
