i was talking to a couple people and one mentioned to me that there's a lot of rape in haiti. i didn't know what to say so i just wanted to ask what's your opinion. is there?

I would be more interested to know the point of the conversation.  Where was he/she going with this?  Did this piece of information come out of the blue?  How will you be affected by this "news"?  Did he/she tell you this JUST because you're Haitian? or Are you planning to travel there and he/she wants you to be safe?
Rapes and injustice happen in every corner of the world.  No country is immune. Not even beautiful Haiti.   So, where there's rape (an that is ... everywhere), one should exercise caution, good sense, and  vigilance.

And yes, in some countries there's instability.  The police do not maintain order.   There seems to be no respect for human life. Crimes, not just rape, are rampant.  And people live in fear.  That's unfortunate;  but the good always outnumber the bad.  The oppressors' reign does not last forever thanks to those who fight back to change their situations, the activists, the advocates for change, ... we've got a lot of these fighters in every corner of the the world.  So where there's injustice, it's just a matter of time before justice is served.
