Multiculturalism: Fatal to Women

Read this and weep.

In Australia, apparently the police are "being advised to treat Muslim domestic violence cases differently out of respect for Islamic traditions and habits."

Wonder what all the politically correct feminist groups have to say about this?

Well, in America, many Republicans refuse to admit that IS domestic violence.

And, god forbid a woman gets pregnant with an unwanted child she has to get a "permission note" from a man, even if he beats the sh*t out of her to make a choice of her healthcare.

As usual from the cookie jill's of the world, they never read the entire law. Only the parts they enjoy to use as a hammer to bash anyone that gets in their way.
(4) The woman has reason to believe that the furnishing of notice to her spouse is likely to result in the infliction of bodily injury upon her by her spouse or by another individual.

I'm guessing Cookie Jill read the law quite well.

Including bypass procedures makes the draconian law slightly less draconian. But it nevertheless is incredibly patronzing and chilling to women who may not be familiar with the law's nuances. The fact that Carol has juxtaposed this post with her shilling for Scalito is hilarious. But Carol has never really thought before she opened her mouth.

Why would a woman participate in the procreative act with a man who will beat the crap out of her (I know that women do this, but I just don't get it. Note to women: if a man is violent, get away from him. It's 2005. You have a ton of options you can take advantage of to get away)? Also, my understanding is that the issue was spousal notification, not that you needed spousal permission, as Cookie JIll indicates. And Alito was simply a judge who was given a task to decide whether or not a law that was passed by the Legislature was constitutional or not. It says nothing about his personal beliefs about the issue.

Also, what evidence does Cookie Jill have that Republicans are oblivious to domestic abuse other than her own prejudice against people whose political beliefs differ from hers? I guess that's why my Church is constantly doing charitable work at women's shelters -- because all of us in the religious right don't know that domestic violence exists or if we do, we don't care.

JCGB is correct. The law was for spousal notification not permission, and that Judge Alito's role was deciding whether the law was constitutional. He did not create the law or even say he supported it.

It doesn't sound like such a bad law to me, however. A father has a chance to give his child life.
