Abused 10-year-old Ohio girl denied abortion

2022-07-02T23:03:48.536Z

The minor had to travel to Indiana for the procedure, where abortion providers are receiving people from neighboring states, now that the Supreme Court has struck down this right. Indiana and other states are expected to pass new restrictions to make it harder to terminate a pregnancy.



A 10-year-old abused girl was denied an abortion in Ohio.

For this reason, the minor was forced to travel to Indiana, where abortion is still legal, although not for long.

This occurred a week after the Supreme Court annulled the constitutional right to abortion in the United States, and shows the repercussions that this decision has on the health of women, in this case, that of a girl.

Earlier Monday, after receiving the minor who was six weeks and three days pregnant, an Ohio child abuse doctor contacted Indiana obstetrician-gynecologist Caitlin Bernard for help, the Indianapolis Star reported.

The minor traveled to Indiana to be treated by Bernard.

Ohio is one of the states that prohibits abortion after

six weeks, before most women realize they are pregnant.

The ban went into effect there shortly after the high court struck down the constitutional right to abortion.

Several groups sued to stop the state law from taking effect Wednesday, but the Ohio Supreme Court has rejected an emergency stay of the abortion ban.

Indiana faces a similar fate.

The local legislature is expected to debate restrictions on abortion on July 25.

"It's hard to imagine that in a few weeks we won't have the capacity to provide that care," Bernard told the Indianapolis Star.

As abortion bans go into effect around the country, more and more pregnant women are crossing state lines in hopes of getting the care they need.

Indiana abortion providers have been receiving more calls from neighboring states.

Normally, between five and eight patients a day would come from out of state, Katie McHugh, an independent obstetrician and gynecologist, who works in various clinics in the center and south of the state, told this medium.

Now, the clinics serve almost four times as many, about 20 patients a day.

Most of the abortion bans in force in the United States or that are about to be approved have exceptions for life-threatening situations.

But there is no clear legal definition of what conditions qualify for those exceptions

, or how severe they must be for a doctor to perform an abortion without breaking the law, our sister network NBC News reported.

Biden and Democratic governors line up to seek ways to access abortion

Professor Lisa Harris, who teaches reproductive health at the University of Michigan, told NBC News that doctors in states where abortion is now illegal (which is not the case in Michigan) will probably 

have to wait "until the last minute to perform the procedure, when it is clear that the patient will die 

and that is not an ideal time to do any kind of intervention”.

Experts believe that more mothers will die as a result.

Currently about 700 women die each year from pregnancy-related complications in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

About 3 out of 5 of those deaths are preventable.

A study from last year found that states that restrict access to abortion have higher rates of maternal mortality than those that allow it, NBC News reported.
