This was posted in my comments section but is so very important it needs front page attention. Here it is:

From SAVE via email:
Cue lights and cascading drum roll...SAVE has now released the Partner Violence Reduction Act (PVRA): click here
After years of discussion and debate, it's now a reality...the Partner Violence Reduction Act will amend the Violence Against Women Act so all victims are served, false accusations stop, and the discrimination comes to an end.
And as luck would have it, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing tomorrow, Wednesday, July 13, beginning at 10am Eastern time, about the Violence Against Women Act.
One of the featured witnesses will be -- you guessed it -- Dr. Phil of Oprah Winfrey fame! You can watch the live Webcast here
The Committee is inviting testimony from all concerned individuals...including you! So today we're asking you to submit your testimony. Share your DV horror story, say something nice about the PVRA, whatever. We ask that you say it politely, preferably in one page or less.
Address your testimony to Sen. Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and email it to Anya McMurray@Anya_McMurray-at-Judiciary-dem.senate.gov. They need to receive your statement no later than Wednesday, July 20. Send a cc to me at tstoddard-at-saveservices.org if you would like us to consider posting your testimony on the SAVE website.
And, be sure to sign our Partner Violence Reduction Act petition
P.S. When you watch the Webcast, look for the persons wearing T-shirts saying, "I was FALSELY ACCUSED of Domestic Violence." Wonder who that could be??

When you consider what a creep Dr.Phil truly is how can he say he's a friend of women.
