When I don’t touch you it’s a mistake in any life,
in each place and forever.

I can be changed by what happens to me, but I refuse to be reduced by it.

“The monetary cost for a rape victim to receive treatment at a hospital in the United States.”

This should be fucking free.

Actually, in almost every state, it is free to the victim. Usually, it’s paid by the state’s Victims Assistance Program and/or covered by their Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program if the victim doesn’t have health insurance that will cover it. You can also opt to not use your health insurance (for example, for college students who don’t want their parents to find out) if needed.
Additional medications, if needed afterwards, are also paid for by the Victims Assistance Program as well. 
Edited to Add: I hate when these things get reblogged without commentary that lets victims of sexual assault know that there are options. I would hate if someone saw something like this on tumblr and decided not to seek medical treatment, get tested, or get any necessary medications because they are under the false impression that they will have to pay $4.5k for these services.

^Very important commentary.

I’ve seen this reblogged more without this commentary than with.

Thank you for the commentary! We reblogged this without knowing that information and I’m really happy to be corrected.
