In Indiana, the doctor who recently provided abortion care to a 10-year-old rape survivor is now under investigation. Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita announced the probe against Dr. Caitlin Bernard in an interview with Fox News’s Jesse Watters Wednesday night.
Attorney General Todd Rokita: “We’re gathering the information. We’re gathering the evidence as we speak. And we’re going to fight this to the end, including looking at her licensure.”
“Jesse Watters Primetime” was among the shows on Fox News casting doubt on the 10-year-old child’s story. In response to the investigation, Dr. Caitlin Bernard tweeted, “My heart breaks for all survivors of sexual assault and abuse. I am so sad that our country is failing them when they need us most. Doctors must be able to give people the medical care they need, when and where they need it.” Abortion is still legal in Indiana up to 22 weeks into a pregnancy.
