You’ve probably heard about the viral story of a pregnant 10-year-old rape victim who had to travel from Ohio to Indiana to receive an abortion.
The story went mega-viral and was trending on Twitter for days.
It may sound ghoulish, but the timing couldn’t have been more perfect for pro-abortion activists, who were protesting the overturning of Roe v Wade.
But one journalist is warning that there’s one big problem with this story.
According to journalist Megan Fox from PJ Media, there’s been zero evidence produced to back up this story.
And to make matters even more suspicious, the person circulating the story is a far-left activist with a long and very public history of manipulating the media to push Democrat causes.
Journalist Megan Fox put together a Twitter thread exploring the possibility that this is a hoax story.
Here is some of what Megan said:
The story about a 10 yr old pregnant girl who had to go from Ohio to IN for an abortion gives me serious pause for a number of reasons. There are many red flags.🚩I’m going to detail them here.
#1. A pregnant 10 year old is evidence of a heinous crime against a child but in every article (and there are SO MANY) thre is no mention of criminal investigation, no police involvement, not even a town where this allegedly occurred.
#2 An unnamed alleged “child abuse” doctor called Dr. Caitlyn Bernard (an abortionist in Indiana) to ask for help. But any doctor who knows of abuse would be required to also call law enforcement. There should be a criminal investigation going involving Ohio DFS and police.
#3 which maybe should be #1 The TIMING of this horrific story is too on the nose. Roe v. Wade was just overturned. The media is desperate for stories to push the pro-abortion narrative, stoke fear, anger, and division. They love this.
#4 The article first published in the Indy Star, a local Ohio paper’s site but in record time was picked up by huge international press. On the 2nd, The Hill and Newsweek had it and by the 3rd, The Guardian had it, and by the 4th it was on TMZ, reaching all the kids.
I heard about it from a teenager at a 4th party and a red flag went off big-time. If the kids have heard about it it was placed where they will see it intentionally. Fake news is always sold to the young’ns because they will swallow it the fastest.
It was immediately used as a political weapon against Republican Governor Kristi Noem and will be used against other pro-life politicians to make them answer this possibly hypothetical or made-up scenario to win political hit points.
#6 #DrCaitlynBernard, the only source, is an abortionist and has been in the NYT participating in an anti-Trump hit piece and is clearly an activist. She has a stake in preserving abortion, it literally pays her bills.
#7 There’s no way to verify Bernard’s claim. She has doctor patient confidentiality. No one can FOIA her. The media won’t ask any questions and even if they did she wouldn’t answer. There is no proof that this 10-year-old even exists and yet the media ran with it full tilt.
#8 Jennifer Rubin used this to batter conservatives, her former colleagues, in the Washington Post. This further gives me serious doubts about the veracity of the story. Rubin is a notorious tool for the left using this story to harm pro-lifers
#9 Why don’t any of them care about the crime committed against the child? Lawmakers in OH should demand an investigation into who raped this child. They are the only ones who can get information through DFS and help the girl seek justice for the crime, if it happened. Did it?
#10, #DrCaitlynBernard got a call from another doctor asking for help for a horribly abused child and her first instinct was to call the media. That should make you all stop and think for a minute. What’s really going on here?

I think Megan makes some very good points here, and this deserves a deeper look.
Too bad we don’t have a media who will actually investigate things like this and look for the truth, no matter the politics.
It’s shocking to think someone would make up a story like this, but it’s not so shocking when liberals are involved.
Sadly, they will do and say anything to win.
My hope is that this is a hoax because the reality of this story, is horrific.
But if it is fake news, it says a lot about how fast left-wing propaganda can spread.
