Senate bill would label single-parenthood as contributing factor to child abuse

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Senate Committee on Public Health, Human Services and Revenue will hold a public hearing Wednesday on a controversial bill targeting single parents.

SB 507 would require the state's Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.

The bill's author is Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), who will present it to the committee.

The Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board works with Wisconsin communities to provide services to stop child abuse and neglect.
