Biden Failed to Disclose Rapist of Ten Year-old was Illegal Immigrant

  • Executive

By Ophelia Garrett

In Brief: 

Multiple times since the Supreme Court turned abortion laws back over to individual states, Biden has told the story of a 10 year old travling over state lines to gain an abortion. "Ten years old. Raped, six weeks pregnant. Already traumatized. Was forced to travel to another state. Imagine being that little girl," Biden said.

The Background:

Biden repeated the claim while signing an executive order on abortion access, using the story to insist restricting abortion is wrong.

What Biden failed to mention is the rapist is here in the US illegally, and has now been arrested.

However, before this was revealed, the story was questioned by some abortion opponents and fact-checkers, given its single source on an Indianapolis obstetrician-gynecologist claiming to have the story from a "child abuse doctor" in Ohio, but had no other details. It eventually drew scrutiny from the State Attorney General, who stated that exceptions to Ohio law would have allowed the girl to obtain an abortion in the state and who said he had not heard of a report being filed in the case. Fox News reported on Tuesday that a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) violation had been filed against the doctor who leaked the story.

Notable Quotes:

"My heart aches for the pain suffered by this young child. I am grateful for the diligent work of the Columbus Police Department in securing a confession and getting a rapist off the street." – Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost
