Ever wonder how that
Massachusetts judge
who took your children
away and stripped you
of your house and assets
got to sit on the bench?
All judges were approved,
usually by unanimous,
vote, by the Governors
Council at a public hearing.
The audio for their
hearings over the last
couple of years can be heard here:

New Hampshire Legislative Committee Leaves Domestic Violence Law Unchanged

Despite the need for changes to the New Hampshire domestic violence law the Republican dominated Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee tabled a bill (HB 1581) that would have required a warrant before an arrest could be made under the law. The committee voted 14-0 against the bill.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Dan Itse, spoke at the hearing and offered two amendments in the hope that the committee would consider the bill favorably. Neither were taken up.

Senate Committee Passes VAWA Only on Party Vote (10-8)
Contact NH Legislators ASAP to Reform DV Law

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed VAWA on a party line vote, 10 Democrats in favor and 8 Republicans voting against. This was a good sign that VAWA is in trouble down the road when it comes up for votes in the Senate and House and good reason to continue to press Senators in your state to vote 'No' on VAWA.

Why repeal MGL 209A - the Massachusetts law proponents say is needed to 'stop domestic violence' ?

The Campaign to Repeal MGL 209A

MGL 209A (the so-called ‘Abuse Prevention’ law) was signed into law by Governor Dukakis in 1978. Since then it has been an accepted feature of our state laws despite its failure to achieve its stated goals and the many serious negative effects it has on families and individuals.

Some reasons why MGL 209A should be repealed include:

1. The law does not protect anyone but instead creates violence. No independent studies have ever proven the law does what is supporters claim.

PDF file of Petition to Repeal 209A (so-called 'Abuse Prevention')

This is the .pdf file of the petition to repeal MGL 209A. This can be printed out and used to collect signatures so long as there are no changes to the size and is printed back-to-back (head-to-head, bottom-to-bottom) and black on white paper.

Repeal MGL 209A (so-called ‘Abuse Prevention’ law) Campaign Kicks Off Tues., September 27!

Our effort to repeal the draconian 209A law is on track after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ordered the Mass. Attorney General’s office to allow the initiative petition to proceed.

Under the so-called ‘domestic violence’ law many individuals are separated from their children, thrown out of their homes, forced into the court system and even incarcerated for non-violent acts and for charges without any merit. Due process rights are ignored under a law which presumes a person is guilty before any crime is committed.
