I once thought it was just me, but I now see there are others out there who are concerned. Someone I respect very much has confronted the problem.
What’s the issue? The amount of time and energy we spend in heated, vein popping, face reddening, take-no-prisoners argument about abortion in comparison to the time and effort we spend on child abuse. It’s as if we’re more concerned with the value of a fetus than we are with the life of toddlers who are physically abused and killed by adults. Ponder this: how much news do you read about the abortion issue, and how much do you read about abused kids? The comparison is way lopsided.
I would say more, but my words can’t compare with what Leonard Pitts wrote yesterday. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/editorials/2014/03/20/how-can-we-allow-our-children-to-be-beaten-abused-and-killed.html
