Mom defends rapist of 10-year-old daughter he conceived
An Ohio mother defended her 10-year-old daughter’s rapist who got her pregnant and forced the young girl to travel abroad for an abortion because newly introduced state laws prevented her from doing so in her own state.
The woman who refused to identify herself told it Notes Telemundo in Spanish that her daughter is “fine” before adding that “everything they say about the man” who confessed to raping the girl is “a lie”.
Gerson Fuentes, 27, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala, admitted to raping the young girl, who became pregnant and was forced to travel to Indiana to obtain an abortion because her home state of Ohio passed what was known as the Heartbeat Act , which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
The ban even applies to pregnant rape and incest victims.

Fuentes charged with criminally raping a child and held on $2 million bail
On Wednesday, Fuentes was arraigned in Columbus, where he was charged with first-degree rape of a child under 13 and had his bail set at $2 million Daily Mail.
He is said to have admitted “vaginal contact” with the then nine-year-old girl at least twice.
Authorities became aware of the girl’s pregnancy on June 22 after receiving a referral from her mother through Franklin County Children Services.
A week later, on June 30, she underwent a medical abortion in Indianapolis.
Indiana is now investigating the doctor who performed the girl’s abortion
Prosecutors in Indiana are now investigating Dr. Caitlin Bernard of Indianapolis, who performed the procedure, although abortions are still legal in Indiana forbes.

The state claims Dr. Bernard did not report the abortion, which must be submitted to the state health department and child care agency within three days of the abortion for patients under the age of 16, the outlet reports.
And in the girl’s own home state, Ohio, Republican Gov. David Yost had initially expressed doubts about the accuracy of the story but was “delighted” after an arrest, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Abortion is legal in Indiana up to 22 weeks of pregnancy, but is illegal in Ohio after six weeks with no exception for rape or incest.
Roe v. Wade was overturned late last month, half a century after it was passed, leaving it up to the state’s discretion whether to allow it or not. Abortion is now banned in at least nine states, and more bans are expected in the coming weeks.
