The article “Russian lawmaker wants to take children away from gay parents” written by Gabriela Baczynska is all about homosexual discrimation.

A 19-year-old student was allegedly anally raped when she unknowingly had been given a date-rape drug. She then went to the hospital where she was denied treatment due to the fact that she seemed to be intoxicated. That second time, the Washington D.C police were called because “D.C requires hospitals to obtain a statement deeming sexual assault credible before issuing a rape kit.” Even after police were called there was no rape kit. The woman is now suing the hospital she went too, though nothing else has been reported.
