Be prepared to hear more stories like this in the media….
The fight is on…..
The story of the 10-year-old victim was first made public by Caitlin Bernard, an Indianapolis physician who provides abortions. In an Indianapolis Star article published July 1, Bernard said that she had been called by a doctor in Ohio about a 10-year-old patient who was six weeks and three days pregnant.
The girl had to travel to Indiana for her procedure because abortions are now banned in Ohio after six weeks. Ohio was among the 13 states with “trigger bans” designed to take effect once Roe was struck down. Since the Dobbs v.

Republicans — including Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and Rep. Jim Jordan — soon seized on the information vacuum, accusing critics of the Dobbs decision of weaponizing an unproven rumor.
In a Tuesday evening op-ed titled, “An Abortion Story Too Good to Confirm,” the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board criticized Biden for giving his “presidential seal of approval on an unlikely story from a biased source that neatly fits the progressive narrative but can’t be confirmed.”…

During the arraignment hearing, Meyer, the prosecutor, noted that the girl had only recently turned 10, the Dispatch reported — meaning shemay have been 9 at the time she was raped and became impregnated…..
