BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — Former Vice President Joe Biden is shining a light to protect children from abuse in Pennsylvania.
“This partnership I truly believe will save children’s lives,” said Biden on Tuesday.
In keeping with his son Beau Biden’s mission, the former vice president announced a partnership between the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children and Doylestown Health in Bucks County.
“Child sexual abuse is a leading health risk to children,” said Biden. “One in 10 children will be molested by the time their 18 years old.”
Biden passionately recounted sobering statistics, touting an expanded initiative with Doylestown Health to allow the Beau Biden Foundation to train medical staff in recognizing the signs of abuse.
