ANGER OVER RAPE LAW (Schumer says victims pay for evidence kits)

Senator Charles Schumer said yesterday that victims of sexual assault in New York and other states who are medically insured are being charged as much as $1,500 for rape kits despite a federal law requiring states to cover them.  That's like asking a murder victim to pay for their own autopsy, Schumer (D-NY) said at a news conference outside Beth Israel Medical Center's emergency room.  It's outrageous, it's wrong and it has to stop.
