So-Called Parental Alienation Syndrome Used to Excuse Violent Murderers

with one comment

Who can ever forget Stuart Showalter blaming Angie Warnock for her own death, claiming it was so-called “parental alienation syndrome” when she sought protective orders because she feared her violent husband.  Sadly those protective orders didn’t save her.  Angie was stabbed to death on Father’s Day last year in front of their two daughters when Joseph Warnock broke into the home.

Other women who have died brutally at the hands of violent partners or ex-partners were profiled on ABC New’s Nightline last week.  Tiana Notice has a foundation set up to continue to speak out about violence against women.  In Illinois, a law was passed in Cindy Bischoff’s name to require GPS tracking, although it is being fought by Chicago father’s rights lawyer Jeffery Leving, who recently wrote an article excusing men’s behaviors for killing women.  Seems like Jeffery Leving and Stuart Showalter are cut from the same bolt of bullshit cloth.


Silent Vigil to be Held at The White House on Mother’s Day

with 9 comments

MOTHERS DAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE

In the somber spirit of the U.S. suffragettes, the Argentine Mothers of the Disappeared, the Turkish Saturday Mothers, the German Rose Street Women, and most recently, the Liberian women who stopped a civil war, we are gathering at the White House to ask our President to meet with our delegates and to help stop the systematic removal and oppression of our children by family court.

Peaceful silent vigil at the White House in Washington DC

Sunday May 9, 2010 from 11:00 am until at least 2:00 pm.

Exact location TBD. We are requesting a permit for Penn Ave and 14th.

We will bring white ‘Mothers of Lost Children’ tshirts, white scarves and handouts. Be sure to bring water bottles, powerbars, suntan lotion, dark glasses, umbrella. Reserve hotels soon (unless you travel by night on a bus and don’t stay in DC).

A few suggestions for posterboard signs to bring with you to hold:

  • Children are taken from safe mothers and forced to live with abusers. Why?
  • I gave birth to a beloved daughter: Her batterer has custody.
  • I gave birth to a cherished son: His identified molester has custody.
  • I gave birth to three precious children: Our violator has custody.
  • I fear judicial retaliation: What country IS this? (if a scarf is over your face)
  • Mr. President, please stop the children’s suffering.

We are compiling one page stories into a booklet. If you would like to contribute factual information and quotes, especially words from your children, send them to us (mothersoflostchildren@gmail.com). You don’t need to give any identifying information. Also, contact us to connect with others in your region who plan to come. Come early or stay later in the week to visit your Congressmembers, if you wish. Just find the name and make an appointment with him/her, or his/her staffer!
