Social Science Director AJ Ortiz wrote a blogpost on the politicization of the term "Grooming" and how it endangers the public's understanding of how children become sexually abused

"The latest inflammatory rhetoric being thrown around in the political culture wars has put a spotlight on child sexual abuse (CSA), with partisans using the term “grooming” to attack political opponents. This is very dangerous and harmful to the movement bringing awareness to the prevalence of CSA. Grooming is an important concept with a specific meaning in CSA research literature, but it has unfortunately been weaponized for political purposes."

CHILD USA released a statement on harmful legislation in New Hampshire (HB 1677)

Prof. Marci Hamilton, CEO and Founder of CHILD USA said: "New Hampshire is responsible for the intense suffering of hundreds of children in its own systems. These defenseless children suffered emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Yet, the state wants to ignore the authentic pain that it caused many of these victims by devaluing their claims through the statute of limitations and by pretending emotional harm doesn’t count. This inhumane response by the government that caused the pain is the equivalent of kicking the can down the road. If they don’t help these victims now, they will have to in future as they struggle to live with the burden of the trauma inflicted. On average, victims don’t come forward until they are in their 50s. New Hampshire’s SOLs are cruel and the state’s responsibility. Please help these child victims fairly and fully."
