Why it’s time to kill Joe Biden’s favorite law.
(Dallas) The Violence Against Women Act, a monument to feminist political power, is up for reauthorization. VAWA does nothing for victims of domestic violence, and it’s time to kill it, argues JANICE SHAW CROUSE.
Grounded on the feminist dogma that men are inherently abusive, VAWA wrecks families and tramples civil rights. It funnels hundreds of millions each year to a corrupt domestic violence industry. It indoctrinates judges, prosecutors, law makers, teachers, and school children in an anti-male, anti-family ideology. All that, without protecting abuse victims.
Laws should be based on reality, insists Dr. Crouse. Women are as likely as men to initiate physical aggression. About half of intimate partner abuse is mutual. And extreme interventions by the criminal justice system make many victims afraid to seek help. There’s simply no reason not to have sensible domestic violence laws. VAWA must go.
