Anticipating a $2,000 medical bill is really going to discourage them from going to the hospital. Not just reporting it to law enforcement, but even getting your medical needs met,” Louisiana NOW chapter political action coordinator Clay Latimer explained to WDSU’.

‘The National Organization for Women (NOW) chapter in Louisiana has reacted with outrage, and called on the state to help rape victims on Monday after a report revealed that hospitals had started charging them for emergency care’.

The Times-Picayune reported last week that rape victims had once been treated for free, but they were now being billed as much as $4,000 by some hospitals’.

  1. The Republican War on Women has been raging for over 25+ years now. When is it going to stop? Can women stop it by themselves or will men have to be drafted into this war?

  2. …just thought of something else…

    Are we using women for something bigger here? Something that goes way beyond politics. Is society trying to protect women or just use them? I’ve got a lot on my mind about this. I will figure it out.

    That’s all for now.
