Women must be protected. We cannot ignore this issue. Protected women means protected children and makes for a kind society that honors and respects women, children, and family -- the essential building blocks of a society.

We need these protections from manipulative abusers who destroy women and children's lives. These types of laws and advocacy for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault is necessary to help prevent the cycle of abuse, and even death if the abuser has the freedom to continue harming innocent victims. Women and their children suffer everyday from this sort of thing, and without protection and confidentiality the cycle will eventually break down the human spirit, and pass on these...

We need these protections from manipulative abusers who destroy women and children's lives. These types of laws and advocacy for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault is necessary to help prevent the cycle of abuse, and even death if the abuser has the freedom to continue harming innocent victims. Women and their children suffer everyday from this sort of thing, and without protection and confidentiality the cycle will eventually break down the human spirit, and pass on these behavioral characteristics to family members. I pray this passes, and this way victims will continue to have the opportunity to move on with their lives, and protect themselves, and their children from future harm. <3

I learned if I get hit 1 time & I seriously mean 1 time! Get out! Next time you could be dead. Our local YWCA is a great place to start. Within 2 months I had 3 jobs plus the Judge extended my protection order even past our divorce. Just remember kids learn from what they see! Don't let them end up as an abuser or abused. Same goes for child molesters, as my dad was one to me. It use to be kept hushed up & now I am so thankful women & even some men are speaking out. When my lawyer saw my...

When my lawyer saw my first black eye, he said NO CHARGE, he made my husband pay for the divorce. Save yourself & your kids!

People, usually males, who do this inhuman brutality are obviously mentally, emotionally, psychologically sick! We should not allow this to happen to us (females)!

I have seen some women who were abused, some stayed and some left their abUSERs. Women are equal to men and sometimes men think they have a RIGHT TO ACT SO CRUEL TO WOMEN, STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AND LEAVE BECAUSE THINGS WILL BE REPEATED AGAIN AND YOUR LIFE AND CHILREN'S WILL BE A LIVING HELL.

I absolutely agree with each and every word that women and men both feel towards violence, to women, and it also goes the other way to, violence against men. I was abused by my 1st. husband, so I know how it feels, and it has to be STOPPED!

we women are not that powerless either , this toxic co-dependance role is learned , we abuse ourselves and our children more by bonding with the abuser < we have got to stop playing the VICTIM role ,

I too suffered at the hands of my spouse for 18 yrs and was finally able to walk away though I still suffer from PTS.(post traumatic stress).My ex daughter in law was not so lucky though I warned her for many years that her husband was showing all the signs and believe me there are signs.My son had died of an aneurysm and left 3 children behind.She had 3 more after his death to a man who not only was abusive but also on steroids.He also snitched so many of the officers she called and...

I too suffered at the hands of my spouse for 18 yrs and was finally able to walk away though I still suffer from PTS.(post traumatic stress).My ex daughter in law was not so lucky though I warned her for many years that her husband was showing all the signs and believe me there are signs.My son had died of an aneurysm and left 3 children behind.She had 3 more after his death to a man who not only was abusive but also on steroids.He also snitched so many of the officers she called and depended on were his friend too.Last month she was shot in the head after being beaten in the face with the gun first and her body was dumped on the street in front of a restaurant with cars going by.Luckily she was not hit but she was battered to the point of no recognition.Now she has 6 parentless children.He shot himself as he was to much of a coward to face jail.It's hard to help them pick up the pieces to their lives and Ican only try to do my part.Something needs to be done other than just shuffling papers through a system that apparently has failled many women.
