Sexual abuse is something no victim should ever have to suffer. According to a recent grand jury report, internal documents from Catholic dioceses throughout Pennsylvania reveal that greater than 300 "predator priests" are credibly accused of abusing greater than 1,000 child victims. The grand jury also noted its belief that the true number of child sexual abuse victims at the hands of the church is in the thousands.
