We can’t find a tweet from the Indianapolis Star linking to its story about the 10-year-old who had to cross state lines to have an abortion because she was six weeks and three days pregnant. President Joe Biden repeated the story this week, but Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler couldn’t confirm that it was true. And as Twitchy reported earlier, the piece relied on a single source: an activist abortionist. Where are the police records? Did the abortionist refer the child to the authorities to investigate? Anything?
One of the reporters responsible for the story that went viral is Shari Rudavsky, who co-wrote it with Rachel Fradette for the Indianapolis Star. That was on July 1; just a few days later, Rudavsky was promoting a story about abortion bans meaning more children born into poverty … and it was co-written by Rachel Fradette.
Remember when CBS News had an “abortion access” reporter who went full-on abortion activist once she left the network. Guess what? Her views on abortion were never a secret.

Indy Star: better dead than poor https://t.co/J55tFwqOay

Ah yes, it's the same reporter Shari Rudavsky who brought us the <cough>impeccably vetted story about the rape of a 10 yr old that she & her sketchy source failed to report to law enforcement. She might have an agenda other than faithfully reporting facts on the subject, I'd say.

"…may mean more…" Better dead than maybe being poor.
I wonder if she'll ever ask the poor if they'd rather be dead?

Any updates on that other story that went viral, as long as we have your attention?
I respectfully request that as a journalist you find out if the 10 year old having an abortion is true. Sounds hokey. Please investigate.

Which police department is investigating the rape of the 10-year-old?

I think you need to stop what you're doing and clear up questions that have been asked about your story quoting Caitlin Bernard about the 10-year-old girl and explain why you didn't reveal to readers that Bernard is a radical who is suing to continue dismemberment abortions.

But we’ve moved on to another talking point in favor of abortion. Gotta root out those weeds, you know.
BOOM: Receipt-filled thread on the so-called pregnant 10-year-old girl story media and pro-aborts keep pushing an EPIC must-readhttps://t.co/kE1H06ECj0
