September 05, 2019 07:21 PM

(ABC 6 News)-- A company advertising an at-home rape kit is facing scrutiny from organizations that help survivors of sexual assault.

The founders of the "Me Too" kit says they believe that the documentation process largely deters victims from reporting these violent crimes.

On Thursday, Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA) put out a warning that the kit will likely not be allowed to be used as evidence in court.

Jude Foster is the Statewide Medical Forensic Policy Coordinator at MNCASA. She expanded how using this kid won't help survivors get justice.
