Is spanking child abuse?

It's a long-held form of discipline. Some say any form of physical attack on a child–even a spank–qualifies as child abuse. Furthermore, spanking can reinforce negative behaviors and lead to violence later on in life. Others argue their own parents spanked them growing up, and the action instilled a healthy fear for authority. This group says there is a clear line between spanking a child and abusing one. What do you think?
