(PRNewsChannel) / August 09, 2010 / SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. /

Childhelp unveiled a resolution Friday that brought together all 50 Governors of the Uunion to stand against child abuse and resolve to eradicate it. A joint press conference was held with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to announce the resolution.

The resolution states:

Whereas, children are America’s most precious asset and deserve our most committed support and protection; and whereas, the issue of child abuse and neglect is a serious and growing problem in America; and whereas, every 10 seconds a child is abused in America and whereas, ever day five children die as the result of child abuse in America; and whereas, ever year millions of children are abused in America; and whereas, due to the current economic downturn child abuse has been increasing in incidences and in severity in America. Now, therefore, be it resolved, that we, the Governors of the fifty United States of America and affiliated Territories, hereby pledge to do everything in our power to fight and bring an end to child abuse in America.

The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
