priest celibacy should be voluntary, says child abuse report

An Australian royal commission examining institutional responses to child abuse has suggested that the Catholic Church’s insistence on celibacy among priests has contributed to sexual assaults on children.The report also called for “religious ministers, out-of-home care workers, childcare workers, registered psychologists and school counsellors [to be] obliged by law to report sexual abuse”, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.The five-year inquiry concluded earlier today with the delivery of a 21-volume report containing 400 recommendations for government and organisations about how to prevent abuse.“Tens of thousands of children have been sexually abused in many Australian institutions,” the report said. “We will never know the true number.”Led by Justice Peter McClellan, the commission fo

nine out of 10 incidents of child abuse go unreported | news

One in two children in Greece aged 11 to 16 falls victim to physical abuse either from family members or their guardians, although some evidence suggests this statistic may even be as high as 76 percent of children in this age group, according to data published as part of the first national program for the prevention of physical abuse, which is supported by the ELIZA Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.Even more shocking is that 90 percent of all instances of abuse are never reported, and that one in five instances are of a sexual nature. Early prevention is key to saving a child from abuse, especially those under the age of 4, who are at the greatest risk of losing their life due to it.There are also troubling signs that child abuse is increasing.
