Raising Women’s Voices

Budget cuts = cuts to women’s health care

Posted in Health Disparities, Reproductive Health Care, Sexual health by raisingwomensvoices on July 2, 2009

Amy Rosenthal wrote an article about the unfortunate cuts many cities are making to their budgets that turn out to be cuts to women’s health care. One specific example she gives is cuts to the processing of rape kits in places like LA.

“These women are already rape victims. We should make sure they aren’t also victims of a poor justice system.”

Amen to that.
