Shutdown threatens to halt rape kits in DC
Victims of rape in Washington, D.C. may soon be unable to get sexual assault forensic evidence (SAFE) kits, often called rape kits. Washington's budget is under federal control, so if the federal government's shutdown continues much longer, some of the city's necessary programs — including those intended to help rape victims — may be temporarily discontinued due to lack of funding.
