    The idea that child abuse needs $60M in additional research is silly.  The only entity that needs more money to fight child abuse is the government. Everyone else is just a huckster.

      it should be about child abuse prevention and treatment for victims.  No doubt PA's costs to provide same would far exceed $60M.  It's disgusting to learn that others have their greedy little hands out.  If they win, the blood of future abuse victims will be on their hands.

    •  So you oppose research into treating PTSD (0+ / 0-)

      and other problems caused by child abuse?  I guess the DOD/VA are just hucksters then despite the fact that they have come up with some very promising experimental treatment methods.

      •  That's what government is for. (0+ / 0-)

        And, of course, in the example you cite they're not preventing child abuse at all.
