Prevent Child Abuse America in the Atlantic.

Prevent Child Abuse America was recently interviewed for a story in the Atlantic titled "Should Clergy Report Confessions of Child Abuse." While we were not asked to comment specifically on the clergy, we were asked to comment on our thoughts regarding whether all adults should be required to report child abuse and Prevent Child Abuse America's President & CEO James M. Hmurovich's quote can be found below.  

"Jim Hmurovich, president of Prevent Child Abuse America, supports mandatory reporting for everyone, but he warns that any such law needs to be thoroughly considered first. "There must be a political and a public will to promote public awareness of the requirement, provide adequate and on-going training, and a willingness to enforce it."
