About this Episode

On July 8th when President Biden signed an executive order protecting access to abortion services he referenced a story published on July 1st in the Indianapolis Star about a 10y year old rape victim who had to travel to the state to receive an abortion after the procedure had been outlawed after 6 weeks in the state of Ohio due to a trigger law which went into effect after the repeal of Roe v. Wade. Immediate some members of media began questioning whether this 10 year old victim even existed; unfortunately the tragedy was too real, and the alleged rapist (an illegal immigrant) was arrested on July 12th. This tragic story highlights the importance for legal immigration and a controlled border but also the necessity for safe and legal abortion services and for those procedures to be a decision between healthcare providers and their patients, particularly in the most tragic of circumstances like these. You'll hear how this important debate was senselessly derailed by Liberal ideologues in House and Senate hearings on the issue, as well as the latest political fumble by the Administration-- this time by First Lady Jill Biden. Tune into this week's edition of Saturday Night on the Circle for these stories and more!
