Michael Reagan mentioned the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) during his interview last night on Piers Morgan Tonight. The hotline has been flooded with calls ever since from people needing help. Here is the video of that interview of him sharing his story of abuse as a child and his strong warning about child predators:
It takes everything away from you when an adult does this to you as a child.
Too many wives are protecting too many husbands in the world we live in today.
[Predators] don't get better as they get older.
My abuser taught me how to throw a football, taught me how to throw a baseball, taught me how to do trampoline, taught me how to yo-yo, taught me how to do those things where I could impress my father, make me feel good about myself.
So he endeared himself to me, and then from that point, it just went to the 'nth' degree.
It doesn't matter if you were abused 20 minutes ago or 20 years ago, stop that molester now. Don't let him hurt other kids...If the molester is a pastor or youth worker, don't call the church; if a teacher or coach, don't call school officials. Always call the police. - Michael Reagan
