The segment is on child abuse, not speifically CSA. And the focus of the piece is on the statistic that 120 children a month die due to child abuse.
So the comment about those who are abused wind up growing into abusers themselves is spoken within the context of a discussion of phsical and emotional abuse. I make this distinction not because I feel any one kind of abuse is better than another or that those of us who are CSA survivors are to be in any way excluded from this discussion, but because if we come charging out of left field with cries of, "Untrue!" without appreciating and noting the context of the discussion, we might not get heard.
I don't think I can copy and paste the link to the clip here, because of the format.

Then scroll down the page to the "More video from TODAY" section. Click in the "A National Day of Hope for kids" link to see the clip. The comment in question happens approximately 1 minute in to the clip.
I am going to work on writing a letter to Ann Curry, who made the comment, Kathie-Lee Gifford, and try also to find the email addresses for some of the executive producers over at the Today show. I think they need to hear from us, the VICTIMS, that being a victims does not automatically mean that you are going to become a perp. When I have the letter written I'll post a copy of it here. I will also post any contact info I can come up with.
