Rape costs America between 110 and 127 BILLION dollars
(In comparison robbery costs approximately 4 billion.)
And these are merely the economic costs.
- Women experiencing rape are 26 times more likely to have a drug
problem and 13 times more likely to have an alcohol problem.
- 31% of rape victims will experience post traumatic stress syndrome.
- Rape victims are 13 times more likely to contemplate suicide than non-victims.
- 1 in 8 will actually attempt suicide.
Victims are forced to live in fear, depression, anxiety, guilt ridden lives - - for what?? Because some man didn't care enough about another human being?!
