The most dangerous place for women is in their own homes, a new report from the United Nations concludes.
“In 2012, the city of Maplewood, Missouri ordered Rosetta Watson to vacate her home. But the city wasn’t done punishing Watson yet and also barred her from living anywhere in the city for six months. Her offense? She called the police four times seeking protection from her abusive ex-boyfriend.”
This is so disgusting I am beyond words.
“Indiana mother Kin Park Thaing may get away with severely beating her son with a coat hanger after she cited the state’s new ‘religious freedom’ law as justification for the abuse. The law says the government may not infringe on a person’s religious liberty without a compelling interest.”
“The Supreme Court, freed from the chauvinistic conservatism of Justice Scalia, has issued a string of incredibly important rulings that protect the rights and well-being of American women while dealing a resounding blow to the pernicious agendas of two of America’s most destructive lobbies. Following on the heels of this morning’s striking down of a draconian anti-abortion law is a ruling which upheld a law that would deny convicted ‘reckless’ domestic abusers their right to bear arms.”
