It only took 3 days after SCOTUS’ decision to throw out Roe. Females are crossing state lines for “services” in greater numbers. One’s a 10 year old girl.

I have to thank Beau of the Fifth Column for bringing this to our attention. I had to pull up the article he linked to after that and it’s dismaying. We know there are likely far more young girls who will go through (or are currently going through) this situation, but this is truly terrible.

As Ohio restricts abortions, 10-year-old girl travels to Indiana for procedure

The article from The Columbus Dispatch briefly mentions the girl as an example (certainly due to age and privacy laws and all), but it’s definitely a problem with a scope that’s just going to widen in the next few days, weeks, months…

This is atrocious all around. Apparently, women are going to Indiana from as far as Texas. My state! A big honkin’ spot on the map that’s got no services? I hope there are some pockets somewhere, but being in the bible belt and with the governors we’ve had… yeah.

I feel Beau’s anger in this one. And I’ve watched it 3 or 4 times now. There’s so many more stories on the horizon, you just know it. I’m gonna go do some angry stress cleaning now.

Also, dunno why it’s showing up with the black & white Youtube and 3 dots logo, but the video does work when you click it. I made sure of it.

    How can anyone actually believe that a 10 year old child is mentally, emotionally, or physically ready to have a baby, let alone be ready to force her to carry a pregnancy to term? And, the referral to the doctor in Indiana came from a “child abuse doctor”. I take that to mean that the girl was impregnated by a man, an adult, very likely, a relative. Is that person being prosecuted? If not, why not? But, whatever the circumstances of the conception, the state forbidding the termination of the pregnancy is child abuse.

      Sadly, even if someone recognized it was in the best interest of the child to let them terminate, the clock’s against the child with the legal maneuvering. Best to get it taken care of ASAP and bitch later, I guess. But I was startled to see that the article mentioned women as far as Texas heading up there. Granted, I’m in the southeast part of the state and they were probably closer to OK, which wouldn’t make it quite as long a trip as I’d feel. But yikes–knowing my red-neighbor states as I do, that means anybody near me would have to go a thousand miles or better to have the procedure done if needed. That’s frightening, especially as broke as most folks I know are these days.
