This petition had 206 supporters

Domestic Violence is one of the problems faced by many people. It can be classified as physical, sexual, emotional and psychological abuse. This happens when a violent or aggressive behavior is acted upon someone in order to control this person. Victims of this case pertains to men and especially women, who have been experiencing abusive relationships with their partners. 

The victims suffer due to the cruelty of their partners to them. Violence could damage the body system particlularly the integumentary (skin) system, skeletal (bones) system, nervous (psychological aspect) system and circulatory (heart/blood) system. The following are some of the effects caused by domestic violence:

  • Bruises
  • Burns
  • Bite Marks
  • Cuts
  • Scrapes
  • Wounds
  • Fractures
  • Dislocated bones
  • Trauma
  • Abdonimal pain
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Hypertension
  • Chest pain
  • Bilateral injuries

Through this petition, we are encouraging men and women who have been victimized by domestic violence to make a stand and to fight back for their own rights. With this, their suffering would lessen, their self-respect would be retained and their confidence might increase causing them to influence other victims to do the same as well.
