A report from the Iowa Department of Human Services shows cases of child abuse rose by 69 percent in Muscatine County and 50 percent in Louisa County from 2009 to 2010. Counselors at the Mississippi Valley Child Protection Center in Muscatine offer care for children who have been abused. They say they are concerned about the rise in reports but say it also means that people are doing a better job when it comes to reporting 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.
