Sigh...



Remember that Wisconsin bill, trying to label single motherhood as a form of child abuse?



Well, it gets better.



From Addicting Info:



"The bill's co-sponsor, Representative Don Pridemore (R-Heartless Scumbag) has gone on the record as opposing divorce even in the event of a abusive spouse.



“If they can refind those reasons and get back to why they got married in the first place it might help,” said Representative Don Pridemore."

Say what???? I didn't think people who thought this way even existed anymore. At least not since the 19th century. Where are they all coming from? It's like someone shone a light on them and they're all crawling out of the woodwork aren't they?

Thankfully not all US politicians are like that. I live in BC now, but I'm from NY. We have strong democratic party leanings in my state and it's not very likely

Wow. I really have no words. All I can do is shake my head sadly. I feel for those of you who live in the US!

My blood is boiling! I'm sure every time my Mum vacuumed the stairway she remembered the loving way Dad smashed her nose across her face. I know I have fond memories of him gripping my neck and throwing me down the stairs......Sons of dogs indeed Jen, I'm sure their mothers are proud.

Depends on what type of abuse you're experiancing Tracey. My ex was verbally, Mentally and emotionally abusive. You don't see those scars.

There is no logic to it Emma. It's one more man telling women that they shoudl not have a say in their own future whatever that may be.



Frankly at this point, I would NOT be surprised to see some jackwagon suggest that our right to vote be taken away.

the article isn't coming up for me but i see no logic to this kind of thinking. people should have the right to dissolve their marriage if they want to/leave/break it off with an abusive person. it's THEIR marriage.

I'd try to remember the good times, but there weren't any to remember. Besides the divorce was his idea in the first place so I let him run with it. :) He can be someone else's problem now.



LOL Krista E, that's how my husband veiws US Politics. Of course with what we have going on here in Canada we now have our own train wreck to watch over in Ottawa.

Nope, I'm Canadian. But I have a lot of American friends, and there's a particular political blog that I follow closely, and they've been posting about this a lot. So it's something that I can't really look away from...sort of like a train wreck. Plus, the issue of reproductive rights is one of my own personal hot-button issues, and fortunately, there are no such attacks on my reproductive rights here in Canada.



So I'm enraged by proxy.

Those sons of dogs and not of women. I am so sickened that it's making me physically ill. I knew I should ahve stayed with my abusive exhusband.

Krista, are you American? I thought you lived in Canada, but you seem really into all the politics down yonder. (not that there's anything wrong with that ;)
