Free Me Now!  Blog was founded with the original Mission Statement of being “primarily dedicated to restoring democracy to our union”. But, something else happened along the way… somethng unimaginable for any Woman, especially Women who are also Mothers.

That “something” is that Free Me Now, BettyJean Kling's two daughters, Denise Richardson, who was in the final stage of ovarian cancer, and Louisa Rodas, her sister’s caregiver, were attacked by the same man. In June 2008, Denise’s estranged husband attacked her with a hammer for refusing him her pain medication. He was released after spending three months in jail, only to attack again. According to reports, three months after his release, on December 15th, he broke into Denise's home, where Louisa was caring for Denise, and shot Louisa in the face with a shotgun.

We need dedication from women all across this nation, by helping us pass "Louisa's Law". What could be more devastating than leaving a family broken by violence; it is remaining silent and doing nothing about it. Let our voices be heard.
