If you get raped, North Carolina hospitals charge you a co-pay

NARAL linked to this story. North Carolina hospitals are charging rape victims with the cost of the rape kits used to find evidence of rape on the victims' bodies.

An exert from the story:

"For some, it's as little as a $50 insurance co-payment. For those without insurance, it's hundreds of dollars left when a state program designed to help reaches its limit."

One more thing to discourage victims from getting help. One more thing to help the rapist get away with it.
