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:

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Some reasons why MGL 209A should be repealed include: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.

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.
