90 percent of teens killed by an intimate partner are girls


April 15, 2019

Intimate partner homicide among teens does occur and 90 percent of the victims are girls, according to a new study in JAMA Pediatrics.

"This is a public health issue that should be taken seriously," said lead author Avanti Adhia, a senior fellow at the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

The study looked at data from the National Violent Death Reporting System from 2003-2016, which included 2,188 homicides of young people 11-18 years where the relationship between the victim and perpetrator was known.

Of these homicides, 150 (6.9 percent) were classified as intimate partner homicide.

1. I have been reading several articles on DU over the past week

about how the House has taken up the issue and is writing legislation. We'll see if the Senate does or not.

3. Sick fact, isn't it? Do the rape apologists think this is G*d's plan, too, in that a lot of these ..
