Right-Winger Monsters FAIL To Discredit Story Of 10-YO Abortion Patient

After almost every right-wing media outlet and politician tried to discredit and throw cold water on the story of the 10-year-old Ohio rape victim, a man has been arrested and charged after confessing to raping the girl multiple times. The girl had to travel to Indiana to receive an abortion as Ohio’s heartbeat trigger law takes effect at 6 weeks of pregnancy. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks.

“A 27-year-old man has been charged in the sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl who reportedly traveled from Ohio to Indiana for an abortion in a case that drew international attention — and scrutiny — in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Gershon Fuentes, who was arrested Tuesday, confessed to raping the child, according to documents filed in Franklin County, Ohio, Municipal Court.

He was charged with the rape of a minor and faces a life sentence and deportation, the documents state. Bond was set at $2 million, and an initial hearing is scheduled for next week.

An attorney who represented Fuentes at Wednesday’s hearing did not immediately reply to a request for comment Wednesday evening.”

  1. The one disappointing thing about this case is that deportation is part of the sentence … which indicates he’s not a U.S. Citizen … which the Repukes will use to redirect attention away from the actual act.

    1. Hello Nan. Yes You are correct. He has been in the US illegally for 7 years. Which means he came over the border during tRump’s term. But yes I have seen clips of that on Fox news from right after he was arrested, and they couldn’t deny a 10 year old was pregnant. One person on right wing media scoffed at the idea a 10 year old could become pregnant but never mentioned the rapes. Remember that Kristi Noem Governor of South Dakota tied herself in knots with a self righteous rant about how people needed to forget that the child couldn’t get an abortion and focus on the perp who had sex with her. She did not call it rape. She ranted about that trying to avoid the question asked by the moderator which was should the child be forced to give birth with the damage that would do to her body. But these are two separate issues and when I talk to right wingers, I make sure to keep it that way. I remind them that just this week I have read of ten sexual assaults on kids by white religious leaders that are legal citizens, sexual assaults need to be addressed no matter who committed them, but in the states that have the strictest anti-abortion laws the police are not even processing the rape kits. They don’t care about rape because they won’t even process the kits. Not just a few but thousands, I think it was over 5,400 in Ohio, and 10,000 in a different state. So I try to make them deal with the idea that a little girl whose body will most likely suffer horrible lifelong problems if she is forced to give birth, who could easily die if forced to give birth to the thing growing in her. But it is mostly men who seem to think it is easy to carry a pregnancy to term and give birth. James Lankford stood on the Senate Floor and said he was blocking the bill because we should think of the child in the girl. But that ignores that the pregnant person is a 10 year old child. We need to think of that child over a damn non-sentient fetus. But that won’t get him the votes he wants for president, and it won’t add to the white race he wants in the majority. Hugs

  2. We simply need to quit looking at the entirety of the right-wing Christian movement with any thought of finding any socially redeeming values. They do not exist.

    They have no value for human life beyond what they can use for political advancement and personal aggrandizement..

      1. Hello Roger. As an atheist I have no right to say if someone else is a Christian or not a Christian. I just don’t feel comfortable in that position. But let me play devil’s advocate for a second. Unless you are in the same sect how can one Christian really say the other different sect Christian is not doing the religion correctly. Is it not a matter of interpretation? There is no official church or authority that establishes the true way to worship, even though all religions claim to be that authority and church. OK advocate retiring. I agree with you that these extreme unreasonable religious people are not embodying any aspect of a loving god that I know of. Hugs

        1. Good points Scottie.
          One of the issues, you might say, vulnerabilities of any belief system, be it religious or political is how a believer perceives the basic tenets of the system.
          From this can grow an antipathy towards anyone who claims to have those beliefs but those run contrary to the first person’s perceptions.
          Sometimes these differences can settle to ‘Well we shall have to agree to differ,’ – Holy Communion being a classic example.
          However when one group is witnessed being at odds with the chore teachings, in this case Jesus Christ’s teaching of Understanding and Compassion then there can arise the feeling that the core beliefs are being misused for profit or political gain, which should be an anathema.

    1. Hello Cagjr. I recently addressed this elsewhere. On progressive Sam Seder’s show the Majority Report he took issue with lumping all Christians in to one group and asked his viewers to use the terms fundamentalist Christians / religion, fundamentalism Christian / religion and he also suggested using the word extreme in front of the words Christian or religion. I used to use evangelical to mean the crazy extreme religious and I might do that going forward. The issue is there are good decent people of faith in all religions. There are religious people who treat others wonderfully and don’t use their religion to harm others. I have them come to my blog and I have posted YouTube videos from Rev. Ed Trevors who is really decent. So I disagree that all Christians are horrible people. But I do think the good Christians need to stand up and denounce the bad Christians just as they demanded that the decent Muslims stand up and denounce the radical terrorist Muslims. Hugs


      1. Evangelical Christians, generally speaking, tend to be more “sane” than the Fundamentalist Christians. The latter are more inclined to literally follow the Bible (according to their interpretation) and do whatever necessary to ensure that EVERYONE does the same.

        The former are more focused on, well, evangelism. Yes, they do insert themselves into areas where they are not welcome, but overall, they tend to be more rational about their efforts.

        1. Hello Nan. Interesting points. I admit I tend to lump them together in my mind. What do you think would be a fitting name / label for those Christians that want to use their religion as a cudgel to harm others and force everyone to live by their church doctrines? Hugs


          1. The Fundies seems appropos. Most everyone has crossed paths with one or more so they know exactly who you’re referring to. (I suppose you could always add a descriptive word like harebrained or pushy or stubborn or obstinate to narrow the field. 😈)
