Child abuse of any kind shouldn’t be tolerarated. It is ridiculous that people go to prison for 20 years over pot, but someone who beats a child to death gets a slap on the wrist. We need to push for the rights of children. No more abuse and neglect. No more child slavery. No more child soldiers. No more child marriages. DCF also needs to start going after people who really hurt their children. They need to stop targeting poor people. They should offer help to women like me who are assaulted by their doctor and who end up with severe PTSD. They need to recognize that birth rape is a real issue, and that instead of forcing women who suffer from it to give up the child they should help the woman get treatment and have the doctor arrested. There would be less child abuse if children and parents were protected.
