I hate that you painted Edward as a bad guy?
Edward isn't necessarily a bad guy. He's under duress. Since Alice is being held by the Volturi, they would keep her until he gives Bella to them. It's no secret that Volturi loves to execute vampires.

Question: The Cullens are human drinkers instead of "vegetarians", right?
Using donors, still preferring human blood.
As this Bella is on a personal mission to destroy vampires, I don't think her mind is willing to accept the Cullens just because they ransom/ rescue humans from othe vampires.
Bella would probably feel Jessica was defined by the money & by the "lures" vampires use to enthrall or capture their prey. For a Bella, Jessica would have been "brainwashed" to donate.
It will be interesting to see if Bella can learn to accept the non-vegetarian Cullens.
Yes, the Cullens drink human blood. It's one of the things she and the Cullens don't agree with. However, she tolerates them because they don't kill humans.
As for the money, the humans deserve to be compensated--a lot like what humans do with egg or sperm donation. The big difference was that vampires do see human beings as food. As other vampires see it, the Cullens are negotiating with humans like human beings negotiate with the cow.
