Senate Republican Caucus issues statement on domestic abuse

There is no place in our society for domestic abuse and violence against women. Our party needs to send the right message to women, and take a strong stand on this issue. These are serious crimes that affect thousands of Oklahomans every year. This body has worked hard to establish penalties fitting for such crimes, and we want the actions of our party to be reflective of our attitude regarding the serious nature of domestic abuse as a problem in Oklahoma. Crimes such as this cannot be trivialized or explained away. Domestic abuse tears apart families and leaves lasting emotional scars. Promotion of the family has always been a priority for our party, and we will continue advancing policies designed to strengthen the family and protect victims of domestic violence. We look forward to working with party leadership to promote pro-family policy.
