House VAWA


The bill’s passage came despite opposition from more than 320 advocacy groups, including faith-based groups, women’s organizations, civil rights groups and domestic violence workers groups. During the debate, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) pressed Adams to name groups that supported her bill.

“Well, Mr. Conyers, I can say I do,” Adams said.

“I’m glad to know that,” Conyers replied. “I think that just about tells everybody where the logic and the support for this bill is. There is none.”

That isn’t entirely correct, though: The National Coalition of Men endorsed the bill on Tuesday.
