ALL ADULTS ARE THE PROTECTORS OF ALL CHILDREN

The Epidemic of Child Sex Abuse in America

 

Dr Felliti Explains the Effects of Sex Abuse on a Child (NPR Interview)

 

1 in 3 girls, and 1 in 6 boys will be abused before their eighteenth birthday…

eighteenth birthday…

 

despite the fact that only 10% tell and the other 90% are still living in a cloak of denial and silence; despite the fact that 5 children die a day, due to child abuse and child sexual assault.

These 316 pages (reports of child sexual abuse) are from public documents that were compiled by a former Army Nurse & current Legal Nurse Consultant who researched 1500 journal documents & public sources to help children abused by the very same predator and people in an organization that failed to report the perpetrator and protect the children (all links are provided).

Transparency is the only way these children can be protected.

Child Sex Abuse and Suicide (a note)

 

Dear Doctor,

As a medical professional you have taken an oath to do no harm, but there are ways in which you can hurt your patients without even recognizing you are doing so. What seems to you as a simple exam may cause injury to those who have been victimized by someone’s touch. This is a subject that we, survivors of sexual violence, have been meaning to discuss with you for some time now, but your authority can be more intimidating than you may know. I am also unsure if you are aware just how much power you, as a physician, hold and to the extent that you affect the lives of all of your patients. Your interactions with us travel much deeper than the physical core.
