Everyone -- Please send it to your legislators along with a copy of Resolution 2466, asking them to help reinsert this back into the VAWA. If we can get that done, use of PAS to harm women and children will be a federal crime, and we will be able to work on cutting off the funding once and for all. And once there's no money flowing to the court whores, they're not going to keep doing what they're doing.

Deleted VAWA - Title Two: http://j.mp/L8U12g
It's NOT just the Republicans who have stalled and reformed language in the VAWA (2012). But an entire section was DELETED (VAWA 1997). http://j.mp/L8U12g
The current Administrations original creator of the Bill of (VAWA 1994). Now, VP Joe Biden and President Obama have completely ignored, are denying and hiding what is obvious to any one who has any sense, any brain cells at all?
VAWA - Title 2 - The entire MISSING section of the VAWA identifying use of PAS legal strategies as violence against women which endangers children. Parental Alienation Syndrome, PA, PAS, PACA, PAD
This is the 1997 ENTIRE SECTION that was REMOVED from VAWA on behalf of the FATHER RIGHTS/Abuser Rights Lobby.
What happened to the entire section of the VAWA addressing PAS (essentially identifying use of PAS legal strategies as violence against women which endangers children).
THAT is the question that NOBODY is willing to answer, not even the Administration which includes the main person who originally introduced VAWA.
If you read the resolution I posted, that is what prompted me to get Fairfax, CA to enact Resolution 2466. http://www.nafcj.net/fairfax.htm
The crazy thing is that *I*, yes little old ME from a dinky little town, not a legislator, not a lawyer, and doing this entirely with my own time at my own expense, seem to have been the first person in the country (!!!), that is other than the legislators who introduced VAWA, American Psychological Association Task Force members (Yes, the APA ORIGINALLY did condemn PAS) and FRsters (Why do you think they are so against the VAWA -- it would have sent all of these psychos and f**kers to prison), to have identified this. But, all of the so-called advocates were so busy furthering their own agendas -- and lining their own pockets.
Special Thanks to Cindy Ross

Parental alienation syndrome, originally crafted as a legal defense of child molesters, is routinely used in family court to mishandle domestic and child abuse cases as custody disputes and to punish mothers and children reporting abuse.
Use of parental alienation syndrome underlies not only egregious child custody rulings - especially custody switches to batterers and child molesters - and family court related misconduct, but the misuse of government programs and funding. In 2003, the American Prosecutors Research Institute identified parental alienation syndrome as the means to obstruct prosecution of abuse cases.
On behalf of the National Alliance for Family Court Justice, I would like to thank Councilman Lew Tremaine for sponsoring and the entire Fairfax Town Council for voting to adopt Resolution 2466. Our group, joined by supporters from California NOW, California Protective Parents Association and court reform activists and concerned citizens from Marin and across the country, commends the effort toward ensuring that domestic and child abuse cases are adjudicated properly and applauds the historic step taken by the Fairfax Town Council toward eliminating the systematic abuse of women and children.
