Recently, Creepy Uncle Joe was ranting and railing to fellow Democrats a 10-year-old girl from Ohio who allegedly had to travel to a different state to get her rapist’s baby aborted.
This isn’t some imagined horror. It’s already happening. Just last week, it was reported that a 10-year-old girl was a rape victim in Ohio — 10 years old — and she was forced to have to travel out of the state, to Indiana, to seek to terminate the presnency [pregnancy] and maybe save her life. That’s — the last part is my judgment. Ten years old. Ten years old. Raped, six weeks pregnant. Already traumatized. Was forced to travel to another state. Imagine being that little girl. Just — I’m serious — just imagine being that little girl. Ten years old.— Joe Biden
Karine Jean-Pierre, Biden’s Press Secretary, later went so far as to claim that Biden “spoke to that young woman just to show how extreme the decision on the Dobbs decision was and just how extreme it is now for American public, the American families when there is no exception at all.” Not, mind you, that anyone should have much confidence in her assertion.
Of course – and, like most things coming out of this attempt at an administration – the poor, little girl is nowhere in evidence, not even on paper. And, from what we can gather to-date, she also isn’t in any legal database despite both Ohio and Indiana being Mandatory Reporting States.
In point of fact, the only reference we have of this girl is a reporter in Indianapolis writing of an abortionist, Dr. Caitlin Bernard, in Indiana who supposedly claimed that an Ohio doctor called her hours after the Dobbs decision, claiming he had a six-weeks and three days pregnant 10 year-old and asking if she could help her.
The required confluence of implausibilities in this story are staggering, though not as staggering as the White House’s promulgation of it. A perfectly timed at three days past the de facto cut-off point under Ohio’s abortion laws pregnant preteen rape victim and no legal investigations or known reports in either Ohio or Indiana? Not likely. Not likely at all.
No, what probably happened was some Dem operative among the White House staff found the story in the IndyStar and fed it to Biden, knowing he’d get appropriately emotional over it as he read it off the teleprompter. But, in regards to Jean-Pierre’s statement, I’ve got nothing. Either she made it up out of whole cloth or was fed it by her superiors.
But then, these are Democrats, and facts aren’t what’s important to them.
