A national study co-sponsored by the CDC shows that 1 in 50 newborns is a victim of non-fatal abuse or neglect. David Finkelhor, the director of the Crimes against Children Research Center, tells the AP that the statistics suggest that families without health insurance are not getting satisfactory care for their children. "It's not primarily kids being hit, but parents showing signs of not being able to really care for their kids," Finkelhor says. Only about 13% of the cases of abuse and neglect were outright physical harm, the study showed. Some politicians have suggested the creation of federally-funded parenting classes, but would people like Tracey Hermann and James Sargent — the couple whose baby died after they left him alone in his crib for eight days without food — even take the classes in the first place?
