JUST IN: Jesse Watters Just Singlehandedly Saved Girl’s Life

An Ohio girl, 10 years old, who was raped and allegedly refused an abortion in Ohio made national headlines when the Indianapolis Star, an Indiana publication, reported she had to travel out of state for one. Dr. Caitlin Bernard, who performed the abortion, alleged an Ohio abuse doctor reached out to her hours after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

The child was six weeks and three days pregnant at the time of the procedure, so she was ineligible to receive it in her home state by just three days.

In response to an initial report that the girl had to leave the state for a abortion due to trigger laws, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said that was not true.

‘Ohio’s heartbeat law has a medical exception, which is broader than just the life of the mother,’ he said on Fox News. ‘This young girl, if she exists and if this horrible thing actually happened to her – it breaks my heart to think about it – she did not have to leave Ohio to find treatment.’

There is uncertainty, however, as to whether the girl’s condition met the definition of an emergency, which involves ‘serious risk of the substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function.’

Fox News host Jesse Watters doubted the story’s authenticity on Monday, suggesting it may be a hoax intended to politicize the 10-year-old victim following the overturn of Roe v. Wade.

‘But if this horrific story isn’t accurate and the abortion doctor and the are misleading us?’ Watters asked on his show.

‘And the mainstream media and president of the United States seizing on another hoax? Then this is absolutely shameful. And fits a pretty dangerous pattern of politically timed disinformation.’

He also criticized the media for focusing so heavily on abortion aspects of the highly covered story and bemoaned the fact that a criminal investigation hadn’t been launched yet into the rape.

‘Why isn’t anybody talking about bringing the child rapist to justice,’ Watters complained. ‘If there is a … child abuser out there in the streets of Ohio, he needs to be brought to justice, and if so-called doctors are covering child rape, they need to be prosecuted.’

Then, on Tuesday, police arrested and charged 27-year-old Gerson Fuentes with rape after claiming he confessed to raping the child two times, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

The arraignment of Fuentes came days after some conservatives, including Ohio’s Republican attorney general and governor, raised doubts about the case.

The Daily Mail reported that “According to court records, a report was generated on June 22 with the Columbus Division of Police for rape. And on July 6, the victim identified Fuentes to authorities as the person who raped her.”

A week later, Fuentes was served a search warrant for a saliva sample and was taken into custody where he confessed to raping the victim multiple times.

Fuentes appeared in court Wednesday and was given a $2 million bond. He’s currently in the Franklin County Jail.

Franklin County Municipal Court Judge Cynthia Ebner said the case didn’t warrant Fuentes – who is believed to be undocumented – to be held without bond, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

But Ebner said a higher bond was necessary due to Fuentes being a possible flight risk and for the safety of children involved.

It comes after Yost said his office did not hear a ‘whisper’ about the 10-year-old girl who allegedly escaped to get an abortion, and that no rape kit was performed, so ‘no biological evidence’ exists.

On July 11, Yost, 65, told Fox News’ Watters that there had never been a police report filed about a 10-year-old rape victim and that the office works closely with the police, so he would have known about it.

‘We have regular contact with prosecutors and local police and sheriffs, not a whisper anywhere,’ he said.

“A detective testified Wednesday that Columbus police learned about the girl’s pregnancy through a referral by Franklin County Children Services that was made by her mother on June 22. The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that recognized women’s constitutional right to abortion, just two days later, on June 24,” The Mail added.

Those who support abortion rights used the story to emphasize the fallout of the Supreme Court decision.

Despite suggesting the story might be a hoax just two days earlier, Watters claimed to have put pressure on the investigation.

In a segment on Wednesday, Watters implied that his Monday commentary contributed to the criminal investigation leading to Gerson Fuentes’ arrest.

‘Primetime covered this story heavily on Monday, put on the pressure, and now we’re glad that justice is being served,’ he noted.

Following that, the network played a compilation of short videos that revealed Watters was focusing on discrepancies in the case, such as why Dr. Caitlin Bernard, who provided abortion services in Indiana, had not reported the crime.
