Every Conservative Who Called Story of 10-Year-Old Who Got Abortion a Lie

newsweek.com – By Khaleda Rahman – An Ohio man has been charged with raping a 10-year-old girl who traveled to Indiana to get an abortion—after prominent Republicans and conservatives cast doubt on whether the case even existed.

On July 1, The Indianapolis Star quoted Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an obstetrician-gynecologist in Indianapolis, as saying that an abortion had been provided for the girl because she was “six weeks and three days pregnant” and couldn’t get the procedure in Ohio under a newly imposed state ban on abortions at the first detectable “fetal heartbeat.”

The case drew international attention after it was highlighted by President Joe Biden last week during the signing of an executive order aimed about protecting access to abortion as Republican-led states, including Ohio, have enacted near-total bans after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a bombshell ruling in June.

Some prominent Republicans, including Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, suggested the case was fabricated.
