State Senator blocks ‘Rape Kit’ Bill from progressing through Legislature




A Bill that would have required all Rape Kits be tested in a timely manner and prevent them from being left sitting on shelves, has been blocked from progressing through the Georgia State Legislature





Unterman says that will all be cleared up via a $1.8 million Federal grant, enough to cover the cost of processing about 3,100 rape kits. However, with Unterman blocking the Bill, there will be no law on the books preventing the backlog from happening again, once the grant runs out. “Unterman is missing the point entirely,” said Stefanie Hill, a DeKalb County resident and Healthcare worker. “Her connections to the healthcare industry leads me to believe her decision to deny rape kit victims a mandated process goes deeper than what she’s saying.” Sen. Unterman has been under fire lately because of her employment at Amerigroup, a Healthcare Insurer that has a billion dollar State Medicaid contract, according to an 11Alive report.


And yet another disgusting move by (gee guess which) party.

Poison you and now deny your rape kit be done as quick as possible. Guess what is the prime motive for both.


Of course there will be those idiots who refuse to stay on topic and do whatever it takes to deflect blame to someone else. TOPIC IS SENATOR AND RAPE NOT CLINTON, NOT SANDERS OR OBAMA.

You may include Trump since he has also gone on record about rape, in his usual idiotic way.

What else was in the bill? How can a single Senator stop the process? Was it an open-ended bill with uncapped expenses? Would it have been fiscally responsible in the long run for the state? After the Federal funds ran out who was going to pay for this to continue?

There are multiple reasons that this bill could be bad for the Senator's constituents and all you did was frame it in a biased and emotional (not logical) way. This is a VERY disingenuous OP and exhibits exactly the kind of binary and rigid thinking that has our country so messed up.

You are free to find anything that makes you feel better about this.


I will sleep fine tonight.

I just don't support the limited thinking that went into your OP.

Hillary Clinton worked to smear and discredit women who accused her husband of Sexual assault, harassment and even rape.

Maybe some things are as bad as they appear.

The Republicans past actions justifies thinking the worst


Men like Rubio telling woman they have to have a rapists' baby and many other words and actions don't instill confidence in them

But why are they doing this??..simple ..many of their constituents believe that their bronze aged sky god told them that every sperm is sacred and these ppl vote , so they pander and pander no matter how absurdly revolting like forcing a raped female to not only carry the child to term but to give that rapist custody rights.

Most of the Georgia General Assembly is republican, and according to your article, they passed it unanimously, so your argument it is a party agenda is ridiculous.

Is $580.64 a good value for a rape kit?
Sounds kinda pricey. I am going to check around Ebay.

You can bet it was blocked because it had some bad juju in it, not the emotional, political angle.

..Republicans are Democrats that are Republicans and Democrats.

Low down and skinny on this bill. Last year , investigation here in Georgia turned up an immense number of rape kits that have not been tested. The reason why they were not tested ? The victim did not file rape charges. And with HIPPA , without an accusation by the alleged victim , they can not turn them over to the law enforcement agencies for testing.

In opposition to the OP , thee is no slight here by any Repulican or Democrat.Just a case of posting links from a website that did not research what was going on. They just know it sounded good , and another way to attack Republicans.

The issue is with the WORDING of the bill ,not the contents.

Epic Fail
FYI: How do I know this ? I LIVE in Georgia and am fairly informed on current events
