At the International Child Advocacy Network, (Yes ICAN), we believe that it is in the best interest of those learning about child abuse and those on their healing journey to know about, understand, and be aware of the legal/social issues of child abuse. To this end we have created a place for current news items to be examined, representing a variety of issues and opinions. The articles in this section are for informational purposes only. The views and opinions expressed are solely those of the authors and/or publications, and do not necessarily represent or reflect the opinion or official position of Yes ICAN. They are provided to give a view of the ways in which child abuse "news" may impact us...as the healer, the teacher, the survivor, the victim, the parent, the student, the elected official or simply as a concerned citizen.
We also hope that you will take the time to make your own voice heard, regardless of your opinion, by informing your government representatives of what you feel is appropriate action.
