Lois Timnick, “22% in Survey Were Victims of Abuse,” Los Angeles Times, 25 August 1985, pp. 1, 34.

A large majority of all pregnant teenagers have histories of rape, sexual abuse, and physical abuse. A 1985 Los Angeles Times survey showed that 27% of all women and 16% of all men were sexually abused as children — nearly all by adults and half by “someone in authority.”
