- The Issue of Abuse -
Take Threats Seriously!
Just over one half of
all women murdered in the United States are killed by male partners and 12%
of murdered men are killed by female partners. (Physicians and Domestic Violence:
Ethical Considerations", Journal of the American Medical Assn., 267:23,
June 1992, reprinted in Trends in Health Care, Law & Ethics, Vol. 8, No.2,
Spring 1993, p.12.
What can you do if you are being threatened? Take the threats seriously!
The first inclination is to seek help and safety with family or friends, but this may put them in danger also.
The safest action is to contact your local shelter. If you do not know where to find one in your locale, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) for the number.
