Abused for 4 years. Beatings, degraded, wanted to die. The mental infliction will never leave. Those years long ago has taught me never be afraid to speak out. SCREAM OUT. Tell someone, everyone, that this can not and will not be tolerated.
Women are beautiful creatures as a whole and they really deserve to be treated with full respect and not to have to suffer cruel harsh violent physical abuse.
PLEASE EVERYONE SIGN THIS!
Been there and it is not something that I will ever let happen again.
Women are on the front line, especially when the economy is bad and the men can't find work. They are abused emotionally and physically and the children are traumatized in the process. These laws should be mandatory in every state (and I dare say every country because women are more than an object, they are the fabric of our lives, our homes, our societies, and our nations). Do the right thing and reauthorize the NAWA!
No woman should go though this if you can Get Out because their is Help.
MY WIFE WORKS IN THAT FIELD, THERE'S DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ACTS PERFORMED EVERY DAY, AGAINST BOTH WOMEN AND MEN. IT'S SAD AND SENSELESS ON BOTH ACCOUNTS.............. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE LEFT UNCHECKED WILL ONLY BREED MORE............................
There are also women who attack their spouses feeling safe to do so because the man can go to jail if he tries to defend himslef by pushing her or restraining her. Members in my own family have done this and suffered from it. Not just men beating women
No one should EVER loose control to the extent of hitting someone they are SUPPOSED to love and protect! EVER! They deserve to go to jail and have the same thing done to them over and over again.
Domestic violence is a personal problem for EVERYONE (Family, Friends, Neighbors, Co-workers, Doctors, ect…) NOT a private problem. NO one should have to go through abuse no matter what age, gender, sexual orientation or race the individual is. Domestic violence is a matter for everyone to get involved with stopping domestic violence and preventing abuse.
