Woman Lynching – 2
Four women a day are murdered by their husbands in this country for NO reason. Since we invaded Iraq in March 2003, more than 4,200 American soldiers have been killed. In that same time, there have been NINE THOUSAND woman-lynchings; more than twice as many women slaughtered than US casualties in Iraq. And as always, I’m only talking about the 1,500 women a year who are murdered by their husbands — shot, stabbed, beaten, strangled, in extreme terror, often in front of their children. Not the additional 2,000 who are killed by strangers every year. When we read about civil wars in Africa where mothers and fathers are killed in front of their children we recoil in HORROR. We think there must be something profoundly wrong about a culture that spawns such cruel and terrifying practices. Wake up. That kind of terror is COMMONPLACE in the United States. Most of the women who are woman-lynched are mothers of more than one child. How many thousands of children have watched their mothers be stabbed to death or shot right in front of them in the last year or two?
