College Student Jailed For Two Days After Reporting Rape – News:
A jail worker later refused to give her a second dose of a morning-after pill to prevent pregnancy because of religious convictions, said Vic Moore, the college student’s attorney. She was released from jail Monday only after Moore reported her plight to the local media. “Shocked. Stunned. Outraged. I don’t have words to describe it,” Moore said Tuesday of his client’s arrest and treatment in jail. “She is not a victim of any one person. She is a victim of the system. There’s just got to be some humanity involved when it’s a victim of rape.”
religious convictions should not be able to impede a person’s right to their own body, right to their health and well-being. The judgement of the whole system that brought about this sorry state of affairs in american institutions is highly suspect.
