What is there to review here? Your Republican and Democratic legislators passed this bill with overwhelming support months ago. They saw that this was a shameful practice that needed to be ended. Are you saying with your silence that they are fools, or that this issue is just not that important to you? There are enough reasons that women don't come forward after being assaulted. We don't need to add the fear of an unpaid medical bill to that list. If a rape goes unreported, the rapist can't be prosecuted. If the rapist is not prosecuted, they continue to offend. You are directly enabling rapists by not signing this bill. There's your review. Now sign the damn bill.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This is a no-brainer. Victims of rape should never be victimized again by being asked to pay for their own rape kit. Nor should they be denied the morning-after pill which would prevent a pregnancy. As Governor, you should put the needs of these women before any personal belief that you hold. To do any less, would be a disservice these women.

Are you trying to impress Sarah Palin here? Should victims of other crimes pay for tests? How about charging the estates of murder victims for autopsies?

Women have to pay enough for being raped - they pay with their lives for the rest of their lives. Can you imagine how much it costs to get mental health treatment? Rape causes eating disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, borderline personality disorder, anxiety disorder. Often times in court rape victims are not believed or blamed for their attack. Can you imagine having that - and then having to pay for the rape kit?!? What a slap in the face!
