TRUE SHORT CHRISTIAN STORY ABOUT PAUL FROM A MAGAZINE WITH MUSIC IN
In 1975, at the age of twenty-five, Paul Marvin McLaughlin began his
One-Man Advocate, "Help Stop Child Abuse NOW," from Donora, Pennsylvania
(Pittsburgh) and Portland and Eugene, Oregon (Pacific Northwest).
In 1970 Paul graduated from Donora High School at the age of 21 because he
was classified as a slow-learner and placed in SPECIAL EDUCATION.
He was was born on October 13, 1948 in Donora. Paul tells his story in his
own words as he begins describing his SEVERE childhood abuse along with his
twin sister, Paula. His older brother and sister were NOT abused.
In 1948 and 1950, Paul almost came close to death from childhood abuse.
Tears will fill your heart as Paul leads you down the path of such
terrifying abuse as being placed upon a hot stove, being beaten with a
belt or stick without wearing clothes, and having his head split open with
a spike shoe. UNFORTUNATELY THE HORROR OF ABUSE CONTINUES. Paul almost
lost his life TWICE.
Paul has spoken of his story
on 10 talk-radio programs, a television
commercial in Oregon, in three magazine articles. He spoken at 20 open
forums across the United States and that includes the Washington and
Oregon, with those who specialize in child abuse and domistic family
volunteered and worked with other nonprofit organizations. He shows the
people in many communities how to contact proper agencies for assitance
for drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, runaways or physical abuse.
Many lives have changed as the direct result of Paul's advocacy and his
love of children.

abuse of all forms, and improving the lives of survivors of all types of
