I'll add a link about the methotrexate problem as well.

And the infamous story of the 10 year old who was denied an abortion after her rape because she was 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant.

Ohio claims that is false, and that it would have been authorized / legal for a 10 year old.
If Ohio is telling the truth, or simply lying to us... is another matter.

This is what Republicans voted for.
This is what Republicans voted for and this is what Republican apologists supported.
The Apologists
- Those who don't vote
- Those who vote for Mickey Mouse because they claim "they are all bad"
- Clowns who enter discussion and cloud the waters with technicalities that don't matter when Republicans policy or Republicans in general are called out
- Idiots who remain willfully ignorant on issues at hand because they are not directly impacted or are too stupid to see that they are impacted.

Another similar story in Michigan

Abortion bans create confusion around miscarriage, ectopic pregnancies - The Washington Post

A woman with a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy sought emergency care at the University of Michigan Hospital after a doctor in her home state worried that the presence of a fetal heartbeat meant treating her might run afoul of new restrictions on abortion.
At one Kansas City, Mo., hospital, administrators temporarily required “pharmacist approval” before dispensing medications used to stop postpartum hemorrhages, because they can also be also used for abortions.
And in Wisconsin, a woman bled for more than 10 days from an incomplete miscarriage after emergency room staff would not remove the fetal tissue amid a confusing legal landscape that has roiled obstetric care.
And we're only 3 weeks in...

Right wing media...cough...cough...Fox News...cough said the story was fake.

The perp has been arrested. Often cases involving a minor are kept hidden for obvious reasons

Which they conveniently ignored, and went on a rant about something else.

They appeared very much interested after learning the rapist was an illegal alien.
Then it gets... weird... when the girl's mother doesn't want anyone to get in trouble for it.

Point being, it's a bit of a messy case - and there's no clear indicator that she was denied medical care in Ohio. Was there?
The story is a bit of a distraction from more certain cases, of which there'll obviously be many to choose from.

If you had a little girl who at 9 was raped and pregnant you might try to shield her. There will be a trial and she may have to face her rapist all over again
