    Child abuse and elderly abuse. Any of the others can fight back, they just don't. A child can also grow up and fight back. Geriatrics, if they are incapacitated, will never be able to fight back. I've seen this before. They are said to have "dementia" and cast aside to die. I care more about elderly abuse.

    However, child abuse of the sexual kind is the worst offense. I try to be a good person, but if I ever saw someone sexually abuse a child, I'm quite positive I would kill them.

    There is no "worst" form of abuse. Abuse is abuse in all its forms. Whether is to a child, adult, animal or elderly. Abuse should not happen no matter how angry you get or how much the person annoys you. Abuse is so wrong.

    Animal abuse.. I don't care about the rest of the **** race called "mankind" We're here for 50,000 years and look at what we did. Nothing good will come of it while we're still here. And no abuse is worse than animal abuse, because we abuse innocence creatures.

    Animal abuse is the worst because no one cares about it and the way the animal gets tortured and stuff. It is just way to small focus on this stuff. If a baby gets hit by a feather though, FULL ALERT. But that is my opinion...

    I think that they are all horrible.

    I guess if I had to choose the worst ones it would be child, elderly, and animal. Basically, the abuse of helpless creatures that are not capable of fighting for themselves.

    All are equally awful but I must say that child, elderly, & animal is the worst. Child- their children, they don't deserve it. No matter what they did. Animal- they are innocent & don't know what they did wrong. Their babies. Elderly - I will beat u with a broom if u hurt an old person because they are older & wiser & you don't lay a hand on an older person.
