Governor Doug Ducey just issued a proclamation for “Domestic Violence Awareness Month”:
Hello, this is Governor Doug Ducey.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
This is a serious issue that affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in Arizona.
Every Arizonan has the right to feel safe in his or her own home.
To those in abusive situations – you are not alone. Please reach out to a loved one and ask for help, or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
You have my word: the Sate of Arizona will prosecute those who commit domestic violence with the full force of the law.
By working together, we can protect our fellow citizens and get them the support they need. Thank you.
This is a good start, governor, but it ignores a great big elephant in the living room: domestic partner benefits, offered by the City of Phoenix and other misguided secular humanist organizations.
Why do they encourage cohabitation by rewarding it with domestic partner benefits? This fact alone should discourage them from it:
In the U.S. and Canada, cohabiting women are nine times more likely to be killed by their live-in boyfriend than married women by their husband.
Once again, we call on Arizona taxpayers to demand an end to this misguided policy placing women and children at heightened risks of serious harm.
And if that isn’t enough of a risk for children, Equality Arizona — the state’s most radical homosexual pressure group — is demanding legislation to clear the way for homosexual adoption in Arizona:
There are 18,000 children in Arizona’s foster care system, but discrimination and institutional barriers can prevent LGBTQ families from becoming foster and adoptive families and accessing resources. Our campaign, Project Jigsaw is working to connect every child to a loving family.
These leftist pressure groups and their friends in the White House and the left-stream media repeat a narrative that same-sex relationships are automatically “loving.” But that, as usual with the Left, is a false and dishonest narrative.
Because domestic violence among lesbians is extremely high. Just look at the sad saga of Phoenix Mercury lesbian Britney Greiner and her former wife, both arrested for beating up on each other earlier this year. This is not uncommon. It is unsafe and unhealthy for children to be placed in these environments.
And for a great many male homosexuals, they engage in a parade of anonymous sexual exploits and expose children to serious risks. Dawn Stefanowicz grew up in such a dark home environment:
Dawn’s story is not the exception.
Yes, children need loving homes to grow up in — with a married man and woman. If we as a people in Arizona have the will to resist calls for political correctness, children will have a better chance for a happy, peaceful, loving home. That is what we need our governor to stand up and fight for. Because he will be pressured to do the wrong thing. Governor Ducey, do the right thing.
