AMPP Members Admit they don’t know if allegations against Protective Mothers Alliance are “true or not” so they will just believe the lies!
NOTE: A past talk by founder of PMA, Lundy Bancroft, and several comments by co-founder, Janice Levinson, strongly state that PMA does not share confidential information with anyone, and does not charge fees to join. AMPP is intentionally spreading disinformation to scare people away from PMA–what they are doing is no different than the tactics and abuser would use to control, and isolate a victim.

I am so glad I never gave any records to PMA– I have long heard that the information is later used against moms– no idea if this is true or not; but looking at how maria has been treated– not much doubt– I am also a proud supported of AMPP
A follow up comment by “Campus Cougars” shows that this person does not even know who or what PMA is and is choosing to believe the lies AMPP is spreading anyways.

Has the FBI been notified about the judge? Looking at the story and the comments it is appauling that the judge is still on the bench.
WTF is PMA and why would they post that they were new and then fell apart in such a short period of time?
“Campus Cougars” is wrong to think PMA has fallen apart, the organization is still going strong, and has not been deterred from its mission to support abused mothers dealing with injustice in family court.
This next attack gets even worse. Mia Tyler Kailin speculates that PMA is compromising the privacy of its members, and her “proof” is frequent use of the word “IF”. Meaning she is making all this up.

If I had ever shared my court documents with PMA I would be scared to openly comment. If they had all my information I believe they could use it against me if I ever turned on them as they would have the names of all the parties, their attorneys, GAL, and other players.
I may carry the voice of some other mothers who can’t speak for the above reason. There is no alliance in the protective mothers alliance, as illustrated by Janice Levinson’s posts. The first one advertises their org instead of supporting the mother. On a page explaining a woman’s plight, Janice felt it was appropriate to spam for more business. Tacky at best. In regards to the second post. Who cares if Maria is still a part of PMA or not? The mothers whom she helps could care less what orgs she belongs to!
REALLY?!?! If the mothers who Melinn helps “could care less what org she belongs to” why then the need to attack PMA?
Kailin then lies and says PMA is part of the Father’s Rights Movement: “PMA is currently busy with Occupy Family Courts, they have teamed up. Occupy Family Courts has been supported by the fathers rights movement in Canada for a long time. Protective mothers beware, take care so that you too are not revictimized.”
More on this later.. Reading these online verbal attacks from AMPP just shows this group has no regard for the truth, and will just make stuff up rather than look for truth. AMPP cannot discern truth from lies, and seems to prefer telling lies when it suits their agenda…how then can this group ever advocate for abused women and children, where TRUTH MATTERS THE MOST?!?

What does this tell you?
1) American Mothers Political Party (AMPP) is intentionally spreading rumors and disinformation about Protective Mothers Alliance International (PMA). You cannot believe a word they say.
2) The lies AMPP is spreading is scaring some of the mothers who hear it, and keeping abuse victims from getting additional support/resources.
3) AMPP will make false allegations without any proof or evidence. AMPP creates fear, and triggers past memories of abuse and/or trauma to create an emotional reaction, meant to cause abuse victims to flee or go on the defense…. people then are manipulated into joining AMPP and waging a war against its “enemies”.
3) How Maria Bauer Melinn is treated? From what I can see, Melinn was treated with RESPECT!! It is the reaction from AMPP, and it’s members that is abusive and out of line!

I wish to update my above comment. Disclaimer; Maria Mellin is no longer a part of Protective Mothers’ Alliance International as a leader or member. We went our separate ways soon after my above posting. The parting was amicable. Any advocacy actions she may take at this point in time is totally separate from the actions of Protective Mothers’ Alliance International. Thank you.

Melinn parted ways with PMA, and on her resume lists PMA as a reference. Are these the actions of someone who has been wronged? Melinn went on to become president of AMPP. AMPP admits they “hand selected” Melinn because of her experience working with battered women–she garnered some of this experience by working with PMA. These allegations that PMA somehow hurt Melinn is ridiculous–obviously not true.
Check out Melinn’s profile on Linked In, see how she proudly lists her work with PMA:http://www.linkedin.com/pub/maria-melinn/1a/475/649
Maria Melinn’s Experience
Warrior Abused Swan 2011– Present (2 years) Global
Victims Right/Domestic Violence Advocate Nikao Ministries:
January 2005– Present (8 years 2 months)
Administrative Assistant Protective Mothers Alliance International: August 2008– July 2010 (2 years)
Before you judge Janice, read her response to this vicious attack.. through all of this, she still remains a compassionate voice for abused women and their children, and works to raise awareness about the issues of court abuse than engage in a distraction

I am executive director of an organization called Protective Mothers Alliance International. Maria is one of our State Chapter Leaders.
PMA has been in existence for only one year. Lundy Bancroft and I co founded PMA because of the desperate need to bring to light what is happening in family courts.
The point that I wish to make is that Maria’s situation is NOT an isolated occurrence.
PMA at present has approximately 70 state chapter leaders nationwide, and we are quickly growing in numbers everyday. Our leaders are all fit mothers who have their own nightmare story to tell. Sadly, this is an epidemic in this country.
Family court judges have placed gag orders on moms, taken children away from protective moms by ex parte orders when children were CLEARLY not in danger and have taken children away from loving, fit moms while they were kicking and screaming all the way. In some leaders situations, children were handed over to dads who were CONVICTED sex offenders.
The volume of human rights violations and the stories that PMA has heard in just one year, is profound. Double standards are the norm since it seems that dads can violate court orders with no consequences, yet if mom does EXACTLY the same thing , she gets thrown in jail. The time for this nonsense is quickly coming to an end however.
Pma has band together not only protective mothers but the CHILDREN who have aged out of the system and are now ready to speak out about how family court abuse has damaged their lives. When it comes “out of the mouth of babes” and we come together in solidarity by the hundreds( PMA and other advocacy groups) WITH our children all our voices will finally be heard and the light will shine on the truth.
On behalf of our family of advocates at Protective Mothers Alliance I extend my deepest appreciation to Parenting News Network for helping to expose the truth about Maria’s tragic situation.
