Rick Scott Just Sold Men and Children Out to Protect “Women’s Superiority” in Divorce Court!

Last Friday witnessed the death of one of the most significant pieces of family law legislation to come across his desk in two years. Now fathers and children will have to pay the price for Scott’s fear of the extreme leftist-feminist in his state.
He said he was troubled by a provision in the bill (SB 668) that would require judges to begin divorce proceedings with a premise that both parents are entitled to approximately equal time with their children. Scott said that would put “the wants of a parent before the child’s best interest by creating a premise of equal time-sharing,” a decision that he said should be left to judges.
Anyone who has taken even one child development course knows the best environment for children is with his or her mother and father playing significant daily roles. Many studies report that children fair much better when children spend equal time with both parents.
The real reason why Gov. Scott vetoed the bill had everything to do with money. Divorced mothers would be loosing a great deal of child support with the new shared custody structure.
