Yep. The amendment was written and passed without foresight regarding all the possible repercussions of the amendment. WHY on earth would anyone oppose issuing an abused woman a restraining order against her abuser? It infuriates me that those behind the amendment actually WANT people to be assaulted like that - and it reveals that gays are not their only targetting group. These amendments have nothing to do with protecting anyone, they are obviously assaults.
Well I am glad that a judge has spelled out the real truth behind the Ohio amendment, and now it goes on to further challenges. I hope the higher courts throw the amendment out! This could potentially be VERY good news for us here in Arizona, since the one we vote on in 2006 has almost the EXACT same wording. Strike 'em down!
Thank you for updating us, and please keep us posted.
Feeling hopeful now.
