We will agree to disagree :) as I'm not going to argue.. Also maybe they could get the money from the MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of money they pour into prisons every month


Quoting marchantmom06:

How many people do you think choose to fall down and break their legs, have a stroke, get hit by an uninsured drunk driver, miscarry, get shot, stabbed ect but guess what?? They are all responsible for their Medical bills!! Now If someone is convicted of a crime yes restitution should be made. But if not the government should not incur the bill. That's why medical care is so expensive as it is, because of people who think like you do.




Quoting Nannosmommy:

Our own bills???!!! Like we choose to be raped??? This is not shopping for shoes!!! WTF ... Can see you have OBV never been in this situation.. And have no compassion for someone who might have been.. So let me ask you this a rapist should walk free if someone is too poor to pay??!!






Quoting marchantmom06:

Again, who should incur those charges? Do you know how many women claim rape every single day? We are talking hundreds of thousands of dollars every month. Who should get that debt???



We shouldn't pay for our own bills now?








Quoting Nannosmommy:

I think that there should be a different system in place... I mean come on it's like hey.. Want us to catch your rapist? Ok well.. Pay us a few 1000 for test's. But yet, they don't charge you for fingerprinting during a robbery... Hmmm










Quoting marchantmom06:

Who should pay for them? The hospital? The police? I'm curious now.

I know its sad. I wonder the amount of women who didn't bother and their rapist got away free bc they didn't do it bc they couldn't pay. Its not fair and it should be free.

It's sickening, our sysem is so screwed up when it won't even protect our own children, we should be ashamed of ourselves as a nation when it comes to that!

Quoting Anonymous:

My moms husband.


Nothing ever happened either.


The abuse continued until I was 17


And when it happened when I was an adult I went to the police about I and they finally charged him.


He just got out of jail last summer

Quoting Anonymous:

Quoting Anonymous:

The constant talking about it is horrible :(




I hated every minute of it.




I hated talking about my privates to male police officers.....









Quoting Anonymous:
