Children in need

(Continued)

Neglected health care in America is not rare, and if access to health care and health insurance is a basic need in the United States today, 8.7 million (11.7 percent) children experience this form of neglect yearly.

The rising child poverty rate is an indictment of America. To have 20 percent of children under 6 living in poverty is unacceptable. We are marching in the wrong direction, and we cannot continue to cut essential services for children and families and remain a strong nation.

Dr. Pat Bruno, Selinsgrove
