Not rapists, rape VICTIMS.
Under the Palin administration, rape VICTIMS had to pay up to $1,200 to have their rapes investigated.
As if being raped once wasn't bad enough!
When Gov. Knowles (Democrat) signed the law reversing that injustice, he said, "We would never bill the victim of a burglary for the cost of gathering evidence, nor should we bill rape victims just because the crime scene happens to be their bodies."
I can understand wanting to save taxpayers money, but other crme victims don't have to pay for their crimes to be investigated. Why make rape victims pay for theirs?
I can understand Palin being against morning-after pills, which are really not birth control, but are abortifacients. But you still don't have to make the poor victim pay for the investigation.
