1997 – 40 Million Plus

Posted on

These statistics were taken from RENEW HOPE FOR VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE. By Robert S. McGee and Harry Schaumburg.

*****

40 Million individuals have been victims of sexual abuse.

35% of all women have been abused.

Sexual abuse will probably increase in the future because of several factors:

1. Child pornography is a growing industry.

2. Step-families are increasing and in which a child is 8 times more likely to be abused. 17% of those raised by a step-father will be abused before age 14 as opposed to 2% raised by a biological father.

3. Numbers of untreated childhood sexual abuse victims may contribute to a growth in sexual abuse cases. 46% of imprisoned sex offenders who show a persistent, exclusive preference for children, were themselves sexually molested as children.

In one treatment program for compulsive sexual behavior 83% reported being victims of sexual abuse.

I’m sure the statistics for today are even more staggering! Pornography is definitely a way of life for many, human trafficing is unbelievably real, blended families have increased, Petophiles inundate the websites and chat rooms. Our world has not gotten better since 1997. May God protect our children.
