Guatemalan national charged with raping 10-year-old Ohio girl who sought abortion

For days, Democrats have cited reports of a child rape victim in Ohio who sought an abortion in another state to condemn the end of Roe V. Wade.

But Democrats may be inclined to make this horrifying story disappear after the identity of the rapist came to light. An illegal immigrant named Gerson Fuentes, 27, was charged Tuesday with felony rape, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Illegal immigrant raped 10-year-old girl

Fuentes admitted to raping the girl twice. He is facing life in prison for the crime. The judge rejected requests from prosecutors to hold Fuentes without bond and set bond at $2 million, noting Fuentes is a flight risk and a danger to the child victim.

Many news headlines refer to Fuentes, who reportedly lived in Columbus, as an “Ohio man” despite reports that he is a Guatemalan national living in the country illegally.

The police were notified of the case after a referral by Franklin County Children Services the girl’s mother made, detective Jeffrey Huhn said at Fuentes’ arraignment. Huhn also said that the girl told police that Fuentes was the father of the child. Prosecutors say the girl was likely impregnated at age nine.

The Indianapolis Star was first to report that a 10-year-old girl who was raped traveled to Indianapolis to get an abortion after the end of Roe triggered Ohio’s “heartbeat” abortion ban.

Many were skeptical of the story, which had little detail and no corroborating evidence outside the account of the abortion doctor who said she saw the girl.

Lib media buries the lede

The report went viral and attracted the attention of President Biden, who used the girl’s plight to blast the Supreme Court and restrictive abortion laws.

“Imagine being that little girl,” Biden said. “I’m serious. Just imagine being that little girl.”

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (R) had disputed claims that the girl would have been unable to get an abortion in Ohio. He said he was heartbroken for the victim and celebrated the rapist’s arrest.

This vicious crime could have been prevented. Gerson Fuentes wasn’t supposed to be in the United States in the first place, and he wouldn’t have been had the immigration laws been enforced.

It’s not surprising that the liberal media is burying Fuentes’ illegal status. To pathological liberals, nothing, not even the safety of innocents, can be allowed to get in the way of the open borders agenda.
