53. so if i go to a publicly funded rape clinic, anyone should have access to the records &
photos of my vagina?

i don't think so.

public money goes to many such services; psychiatric services, juvenile services, drug services, etc. that doesn't mean the clients don't have a right to privacy. that doesn't mean any photos or records created with public money are thrown open to the public.
