Default Mayor Sarah Palin made rape victims pay for the evidentiary rape kit.

Rumor is Palin made this change in policy to throw down a roadblock
in
front of women who might consider an abortion. Raped under Palin's
administration: No abortion and rapist not prosecuted.

Sarah Palin and Her Outrageous Rape Kit Policy
September 18, 2008 02:14 PM ET | Bonnie Erbe | Permanent Link


Mountains of controversy are swirling around Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin's
strange policy of forcing rape victims to pay for their own rape kits
while she was mayor of the now-infamous town of Wasilla.


The most interesting take I've found is posted by Alaska blogger
Shannyn Moore who relates the following:


I sat with a rape victim during the "harvesting of evidence". Mascara
smeared eyes stared blankly out from a cave of shame. "We've got
swimmers," announced the forensic tech in the lab next door. My
friend
didn't look surprised. In her 60's, she was still asked if she felt
the need for emergency contraception. Surviving the process would
have
only been compounded and made worse with an itemized bill; victimized
twice courtesy of Sarah Palin and the city of Wasilla.

Palin supporters ought to be taking a much closer look at her record
on these types of issues (charging rape victims for evidentiary
examinations so their attackers can be brought to trial) than whether
she can juggle five children and the vice presidency. This, more than
anything, should push women, pro-life and pro-choice, away from the
McCain-Palin ticket. It's one thing to oppose abortion on moral
grounds. It's quite another to charge crime victims for their own
forensic examinations. Such a policy is nothing short of outrageous.
