VAWA expired

Laura Wood reports that in all the excitement about the fiscal cliff, a bad feminist law died:
THE feminist domestic violence industry is now officially in jeopardy after the House failed to renew the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) at year’s end. This leaves a bill which is responsible for serious civil rights abuses hanging for the first time since it was adopted in 1994. The Senate last year authorized an expanded version that would have extended services to homosexuals, Native Americans and immigrants. But the House GOP did not bring it to the floor before its expiration.

Presumably some version of the noxious bill will be resurrected. In the meantime, expect many more crybaby stories about the evil “War on Women.” VAWA supporters have all but accused Congressmen of rape for their failure to move the totalitarian bill. See previous posts on VAWA here, herehere and here.
