"I wish the PRESERVEkit was around years ago.
— SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVOR,
Countless college clubs and advocacy programs educate and spread awareness about the rape kit. They stress the urgency of going to a hospital or clinic as soon as possible after unwanted sexual intercourse of any kind occurs. The logical and rational parts of my brain get it. It makes sense; having a series of tests done to collect evidence for a crime and possible conviction of the perpetrator.
If I had the PRESERVEkit available to me, I could have kept more options open for me for the future. I could have lessened the pressure on myself I felt to act immediately and permanently. The PRESERVEkit can help preserve choices."
"Physical evidence ensures the strongest possibility of conviction.If you absolutely cannot have a law enforcement or medical professional help you, this product (PRESERVEkit) will provide an excellent alternative so that crucial physical evidence isn't lost, and your rights are protected."
