Child rape, pregnancy and abortion
With the fall of Roe we’re seeing just the beginning of what will be many terrible situations for women and yes, girls. It only took a few days and we now have the first such known example. A girl, 10 years old, raped and needing an abortion had to travel from Ohio to Indiana for the procedure.
Not surprisingly, the right-wing reacted with everything from denial of the rape happening to suggesting the pregnancy was a gift from god to, at this moment, pursuing the doctor that performed the abortion. And quite a few other feats of mental, political, linguistic gymnastics.

Republican Witness: That’s not an abortion

I was the ONLY reporter in the courtroom this morning as the man accused of raping a 10-year-old girl, impregnating her, leading to an abortion in Indiana, was arraigned.— Bethany Bruner (@bethany_bruner) July 13, 2022
This confirms that the case exists.https://t.co/eWvtBMxqZW
