Man charged in rape of 10-year-old Ohio girl who sought abortion in Indiana

She’s only 10 years old. But she needed to travel to Indiana for an abortion after laws in Ohio prohibited the procedure. Now her story has garnered international attention after prominent anti-abortion advocates and GOP politicians questioned the veracity of the story.
