Blacks are not going to discriminate against each other. If substance abuse becomes a major problem in a relationship, the responsible spouse will have the ability to pull the relationship out of disaster. There is nothing "nanny" about this legislation. We oppose the nanny state in every regard.
Black wives and husbands will not discriminate against each other along racial lines.
Under the present law, the non-substance-abusing spouse has to live through hell. Public policy should back the responsible spouse, not the substance abuser. This will no longer happen. Substance abuse centers interview both spouses and get to the bottom of the family dynamic. Most individuals working in this field are former substance abusers. You can't fool them. Our form gives the abuse center the ability to say that the petitioner is the one with the substance abuse problem. Those who try to game the system will find themselves at the other end of the restraining order.

Regardless of race, when substance abuse is driving marital disruption, the responsible spouse will have a power tool to apply that can get the other spouse into recovery. the state has no power to do anything -- race cannot possibly be a factor in how this statute will work.
This bill does not give government any power to do anything. It is self-balancing. Substance abuse is a major driver of marital disruption, divorce, and nonmarriage. The vast majority of school shootings involve children of divorce (Adam Lanza went downhill quickly after his parent's divorce ). When substance abuse causes major family disruption, it gives the responsible spouse a power tool to pull the family back together. It has not been reported on yet, but I suspect from the odd behavior of the mother, that she was a pill popper and very difficult to live with.
It was just introduced and is moving along on schedule. We have ranking members sponsoring/cosponsoring it. I am told that it will sail through the legislature.
Hi Rachel. Actually, the idea that pregnancy is less likely in rape is false. Long-term stress in women impacts chances of pregnancy, but the immediate stress of rape does not. What Todd said has been an incorrect assertion in pro-life literature for a long time. Todd just repeated what pro-lifers told him (he does rely on them for science). It is disgusting that pro-life leadership did not step up to the plate, take responsibility, and correct their mistake. They left Todd hanging. How dare they do that? As it stands, if Todd loses we can credit the pro-life movement for aborting him.
