Tell your Congressperson about the Partnership Violence Reduction Act

Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVES) is getting the word out to contact your Congressional Representatives and tell them about the Partnership Violence Reduction Act and why it should be supported. Some of the reasons VAWA should be amended are:
  • “We do not shelter men in the shelter even if it’s empty.” — Judy King Smith, director of the Rape and Domestic Violence Information Center, Morgantown, West Virginia

  • “VAWA needs to focus on ending those crimes [physical battering] rather than broaden the definition of violence to the point of meaninglessness.” – Concerned Women for America

  • Currently used definitions of domestic violence that are unacceptably trivial include calling your partner a naughty word, raising your voice, causing ‘annoyance’ or ‘emotional distress,’ or just not doing what your partner wants.” – Eagle Forum

  • “A number of women attending the seminars smugly—indeed boastfully—announced that they had already sworn out false or grossly exaggerated domestic violence complaints against their hapless husbands, and that the device worked!”— New Jersey attorney

  • Your job is not to become concerned about all the constitutional rights of the man that you’re violating as you grant a restraining order. Throw him out on the street, give him the clothes on his back, and tell him, ‘See ya’ around.’” – Trainer at New Jersey judicial seminar

  • These bullet points are from VAWA:Mandate for Change. Congressman Ted Poe has no problem making VAWA gender neutral and the Roll Call brought up the economic side of VAWA and how there is no accountability for where the money goes. In fact Senator Grassley mentions how VAWA is accountable to no one It's time for a change for the better. It's time to contact your Congreesperson and the sooner the better. Do so right away.

    All of these acts and laws are there for justifying the capricious behavior of women. And also these laws are protecting wicked feminists. Aren't women verbally annoy men?

    I know what your mean,Dulanta. I'm one to walk away when she's gets mouthy and then they label that "domestic violence" as well. How is a man supposed to win short of killing the bitch?
