The statistics on child abuse are truly saddening. However, your articles failed to mention the ultimate child abuse--killing children before they see the light of day. The entire cycle of abortion, child abuse, spousal abuse and abuse of the elderly and euthanasia are symptoms of growing stress and anxiety in our society that no amount of money will ever prevent. A spiritual reawakening of moral values is necessary from the top down.
Our society's values are truly backwards and confused.
