I am a feminist and believe that domestic violence
is a horrible situation and I would do anything
to stop one incident of this.
However, Scott Peterson, who killed his wife
and unborn son, was recently sent to death for
this. I see this as a bad thing for all humans,
including the women's movement. In order for
women who are victims of domestic violence to
regain their control over their situation, the
violence first needs to end. How can we fight
violence with more violence?
If we condone violence, then only more violence
will follow. How do you feel about the death
penalty? We need to end the cycle of violence
and stop allowing our children to see the government
sanctioned murder that is occurring.
I totally agree.
What Scott Peterson
did was one of the worst things I had ever
heard of, but I am adamantly opposed to the
death penalty and can't justify it under any
circumstance. I would contact the Family
Violence Prevention Fund, they are likely to put out some
good information on it.
