THE TERMINATOR CUTS FUNDING 100% -IS HE TERMINATING LIVES?

Unbelievable though it may sound, our dear beloved Californian Governor Schwarzenegger, has taken his pen and axed 100% of the funding for domestic violence programs as part of his $489 million in budget cuts. The complete loss of state funding will force many of the shelters and safe havens empowering victims to begin a new life in safety, to close their doors, abandoning the very people who need their support through a desperate and dangerous time."This could cost lives," Says Maggie John, the Executive director of Shasta Women's Refuge. "It was a very naive thing to do to cut a program like this. It's a safety net for victims of domestic violence and their children."(Elizabeth Gadley of khsltv news).

Just three weeks ago, Novato resident, Danielle Keller, 29, was murdered by the father of her one year old daughter Samantha, Jim Mitchell violated the restraining order in place, and brutally bludgeoned her to death with a baseball bat, kidnapping the baby on her first birthday. The courts had passed on placing Mitchell in jail just several weeks prior to the murder.

Statistic show that every week, two women are murdered brutally by their partners.

WHERE WILL THESE WOMEN GO FOR SAFETY WHEN THEY LEAVE? WHO WILL SHELTER AND ADVISE THEM?

It certainly doesn't take a psychic to foretell an increase in domestic violence. According to the Stanford Educational Group, Domestic Violence is the leading cause of injury to woman between the ages of 15 and 44. Almost 1/3 of all women in the hospital emergency rooms are there as a result of being physically abused and assaulted by their partner.

With the cut in government services, community, family and friends need to step up and offer support.
