THe United States leads the developed world in child abuse deaths. Over the past 10 years, more than 20,000 children have died because of family members, 75% of them under the age of 4, and nearly half under the age of one.
Leading causes are high teenage pregnancy rates, dropping out of school and poverty. Americans are less likely to have access to adequate child care, parental leave and medical care.
You know it is funny how any American ever lived to adulthood, before the protective arm of all powerful government began in this nation. Maybe, it is because of government that many of these problems have become so fashionable of late.
