In 2015, 171 child deaths in Texas were caused by child abuse. That is 3.3 children a week. In total there were 274,448 alleged child abuse victims last year. To put it in context, that is the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium at full capacity, three times over, and then some. Government resources such as CPS (Child Protective Services) are overloaded and many children tragically fall through the cracks. It’s a fact that diverting funds to the areas that need it the most is imperative in fighting child abuse.
