Yesterday, I reported on Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita’s appearance on Jesse Watter’s Fox News program, during which he accused the Indiana Doctor who provided abortion care to the ten year old rape victim from Ohio of “failure to report” the procedure…
A quick refresher on his accusation:

This morning, The Washington Post reports that the doctor in question in fact followed all reporting procedures required by Indiana law, and a statement by her attorney indicates that she and her client are considering legal action against Rokita…
“We’re gathering the evidence as we speak, and we’re going to fight this to the end — including looking at her licensure, if she failed to report,” Rokita told Fox News’s Jesse Watters on Wednesday night. Watters had suggested the doctor could face “a criminal charge.”
Rokita again raised doubts Thursday in a letter to Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R), saying that his office had requested, but not received, documentation from state agencies that the girl’s abortion had been properly reported by the OB/GYN, Caitlin Bernard.
But records obtained by The Washington Post on Thursday afternoon show that Bernard indeed reported the minor’s abortion to the relevant state agencies before the legally mandated deadline to do so. The doctor’s attorney, Kathleen DeLaney, said in a statement to news outlets that Bernard is “considering legal action against those who have smeared [her], including Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita.”
Rokita, and, presumably most who voted to put him into his office claim to be Christians, but will brazenly lie to defame a Doctor who’s only offense was terminating the pregnancy of a child rape victim when she could not get the care she needed in her home state of Ohio – because of laws enacted by the same brand of false Christians.
And WaPo reports another example of those same hypocrites at work:
“During his Wednesday night interview with Fox News, Rokita also accused Bernard of having “a history of failing to report” child abuse cases — an allegation that hinges on claims made by an antiabortion group in 2018 that have since been amplified by some conservative outlets…
… Indiana Right to Life filed complaints against the physicians with the state health department and the attorney general’s office. The outcome of the state’s investigation into the complaints is unclear. A spokeswoman for the organization said “the State did look into it,” but when asked to share related documents, she referred The Post to the attorney general’s office, which did not address an inquiry about them.
The Indiana Department of Health did not respond to multiple requests from The Post. A review of records from DocInfo — a physician licensure and disciplinary information data set from the Federation of State Medical Boards — and the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana did not show any disciplinary activity or license terminations against Bernard or any of the other doctors.”
Lies built upon the foundation of previous lies…
Lies are all they got.
