I think that there are other way to punish a child than to hit. ( although some times we do want to) but that is only a surface, get out the frustration spanking)  it still does no good and it is abuse.  It is not ok to hit.  taking things away for more than a day yes,,, then they have to think about WHY ..........    hitting leads to bruises and emotional truama over a period of time.   WHY DO WE NEED MORE ANGRY AND EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE people steming from our upbringing in this world.    (just my opinion)

I'm not sure I understand this post entirely.

1st.  Spanking is not abuse.....it's a light tap on the rear end.

2nd.  If a parent is literally physically abusive they don't belong having custody of their children and thus don't belong discipling them.
