The Act passes anyway since 100% of the democrats voted for it.
Why is it important? Law enforcement cannot enforce laws that do not exist. The Violence Against Women Act is a vital tool for Law enforcement to use to protect women. Republicans are against this is both houses of congress. Democratic Party unity, a rare commodity, made it happen.
Democratic Party, are you learning yet? Women in America, are you learning yet?
I work at a sexual assault clinic doing statistical reporting, I see the numbers of a particularly hard type of violence against women. It discusses me to see the Republicans fight this bill.
You can say things like ” they can leave if they want to” or “there are groups to help them” but until you open your eyes and see what these women are really going through you have no idea how important this bill is to the women and female children of this country.
