SCREAM – Statistics
Domestic Violence
  • Every 15 seconds in the U.S. a woman is beaten

  • Domestic violence results in more injuries that require medical attention than rape, accidents and muggings combined.

  • Two in five women who are murdered are killed by their husbands.

  • At least 95% of all cases of partner abuse involve a man beating a woman.

  • Woman abuse happens in all classes and races. It occurs at every level of income and education.

  • Violence in the home usually becomes more frequent and severe over time. The abuser’s apologies do not mean the violence will not occur again.

  • Children who grow up in violent homes come to believe that violence is normal. They come to believe that it is an acceptable way to control someone else. The majority of adult violent prisoners were raised in violent homes.

  • Violence is often part of a pattern of threats, insults, insane jealously, explosive temper, and attempts to isolate and overpower the woman. 

Abortion seekers often poor and already mothers

By The Associated Press
Nearly 1 million women get abortions every year. Most say they made that choice because they couldn’t afford a baby or having one would interfere with a job, caring for existing children or other responsibilities.
Who are these women?

  • More than half — 54 percent — say they were using birth control around the time they got pregnant.
  • Most are unmarried, in their 20s and 30s; 18 percent are teens.
  • More than half are poor.
  • Three-fourths identify with a religion, mostly Protestant; more than 1 in 4 are Catholic.
  • Nearly 60 percent have at least one child.
  • More than one-third are white, 30 percent are black and 25 percent are Hispanic.

  • About 215,000 people younger than 20 years had diabetes—type 1 or type 2—in the United States in 2010.
  • About 1.9 million people ages 20 years or older were newly diagnosed with diabetes in 2010 in the United States.

Applying this percentage to the entire U.S. population in 2010 yields an estimated 79 million American adults ages 20 years or older with pre-diabetes.
