A Kossack suggests that Palin opposed Wasilla funding rape kits because they contain emergency contraception:

In sum: the only possible reason behind Sarah Palin's consistent refusal to fund rape investigation kits with taxpayer money is that they contain emergency contraception, which her religious fundamentalism views as tantamount to an abortion, and she, like George Bush, is a firm believer in the Mexico City policy.

I'm not sure I buy this. Palin has said in the past that she supports contraception, but this is a question worth asking, if the press was allowed to ask her questions that is.
