NJ Governor Chris Christie: Don't Make Rape Victims Pay for Their Own Rape Kits

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.
