    Every 12 Seconds A Woman Is Abused

    http://www.shreveporttimes.com/apps/...029/SPORTS0203

    FBI statistics indicate that every 12 seconds a woman is beaten by her lover, boyfriend or husband. Domestic violence invades the lives of women, men, children, impacting families, friends, co-workers and communities. These behaviors may be in the form of physical, sexual, economic, psychological or emotional abuse. These behaviors may occur regardless of the income-level, education, age, geography, race or nationality. The majority of victims are women but there are some men. The statistics on men are usually skewed due to the fact some men will not report the abuse.

    I think it's probably more often than every twelve seconds and there is never a second that it's not happening to some woman.

    txsvicki, I thought the exact same thing. I bet it goes on every single second in this world.
