The US: Child Abuse Capital of the Industrialized World.
This is chilling stuff:
Over the past 10 years, more than 20,000 American children are believed to have been killed in their own homes by family members. That is nearly four times the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The child maltreatment death rate in the US is triple Canada's and 11 times that of Italy. Millions of children are reported as abused and neglected every year. Why is that?
from the BBC
I'd be interested to see analysis that compares the rate of child and neglect to access to free and safe abortions, as well as analysis focussing on social security levels.
