I wish I felt sympathy for these women. I do not. I am a mother. I would kill any man who attacked my child. Period. Right or wrong - I would not allow someone to attack my child and just do nothing. The minute I was able to leave, even if it meant leaving with nothing, I would remove my child if the person proved himself to be abusive to me. However, kids do not have that choice. When you make the decision to have a child, you make the decision to put their needs ahead of yours. If that child is suffering, you have to find the strength to do the right thing. If you don’t, you are just as guilty as the person who physically harms them. Period!
