My father was the prophet of the second largest POLYGAMIST SECT in the U.S. My mother was the first of his thirteen wives. She raised me, (her youngest of 8) to be a martyr just as she was. From infancy, polygamist children are taught that husbands must have many wives, and women are to bare as many children as their bodies will produce, so they can be the jewels in their husbands’ crowns when they became Gods of their own worlds. Damnation is the penalty for non-compliance! I followed that cohesive programming, and lived polygamy with my husband before I finally woke up nearly 50 years later. I started college with 6 kids still at home, taught elementary school for 11 years, and then quit, so that I could help women and children escape from polygamy, and publicize my book.
As the founder and director of the Sound Choices Coalition, which was formed to help end the human rights violations due to patriarchal polygamy and other systems, I speak about the research done, of my own experiences, and that of hundreds of others, to verify the rampant abuses of polygamy; why polygamy should NOT be compared to same sex marriages or partnerships; nor is it about free will choices.
To decriminalize polygamy would be like condoning slavery and bringing it back into existence.
