Dear God… I doubt that the rate is actually increasing; what’s is increasing is more probably the report rate.
A survey done by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta says 10.4 percent of young people in Alabama say they have been forced to have sex, compared to the national average of 7.7 percent. South Carolina, New Jersey and Mississippi had the highest rates.
I wonder what New Jersey is doing in there… I assume that by “young people” they actually mean young women. Ten percent! That’s sickening. How does this happen in a theoretically civilized society?
