Online people have been heavily interacting with news of an Indiana-based doctor who received threats by a group connected to Amy Coney Barrett, after she performed an abortion on a 10-year-old child whose pregnancy was a result of a rape incident.
Doctor Caitlin Bernard testified that she received several threats from anti-abortion people after her name was listed on a website of a conservative "pro-life" group linked to Amy Coney Barrett, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States before she was appointed to SCOTUS by Donald Trump in October 2020.
Extremist anti-abortion website with ties to Amy Coney Barrett, called Right to Life Michiana, put out a threat to kidnap the daughter of Caitlin Bernard. She is the doctor who performed the abortion of the 10 yo rape victim. This can’t be our new normal. #wtpBlue #DemVoice1 https://t.co/LqhVlVGwpw— Brian Cardone 🏴☠️🇺🇦 (@cardon_brian) July 16, 2022
Among the threats that were reported to the FBI in 2020, one was a warning of kidnapping the doctor's daughter.
Because of her routine first trimester abortions at Indiana clinics, Caitlin Bernard's name and information were posted by an extremist anti-abortion group from Indiana called "Right to Life Michiana", which according to the Guardian had posted an advertisement in the South Bend Tribune in 2006, calling the now reversed Roe vs. Wade law "barbaric".
The doctor who cared for the 10-yr-old rape victim was listed as a “threat” by a militant anti-abortion group tied to Amy Coney Barrett— Lindy Li (@lindyli) July 17, 2022
Her daughter faced kidnapping threats
Amy is also tied to the Christian cult People of Praise
Call them what they are: Religious terrorists
The ad was then signed by Amy Coney Barrett, who was teaching at the University of Notre Dame.
Caitlin Bernard's name also made it to headlines in recent days following the story of a 10-year-old girl from Ohio who was reported to have fallen pregnant after being raped by a 27-years old man from the same state.
Caitlin Bernard performed the abortion for the Ohio rape victim in Indiana last month, several days after the Supreme Court of the United States outlawed the Roe vs. Wade law, which effectively banned abortions in the state of Ohio.
Social media people responded to the news with growing anger towards justice Amy Coney Barrett, not only because of her vote to ban abortions across the United States but also because of her ties to the Right to Life Michiana and their role in threatening doctors who perform abortions in the United States.
And thank you to the journalists who have worked tirelessly and diligently to inform the public about this important story and the truth. I hope to be able to share my story soon. 2/2— Caitlin Bernard (@drcaitbernard) July 15, 2022
Violence against doctors who perform abortions were reported over the years. According to the National Abortion Federation, 11 medical and health providers were murdered in the United States since 1977, in addition to 42 bombing attacks against health clinics where abortions were performed.
