Fox 59 reported Tuesday that Dr. Caitlin Bernard has moved to sue Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita for defamation. Dr. Bernard is the abortionist at the center of the incident involving a 10-year-old girl from Ohio who traveled to Indiana for an abortion after becoming pregnant through rape. She’s filed a tort claim, which is considered the first step in such a lawsuit. “The tort claim filing triggers a 90-day investigative period for the state to settle the claim, after which a lawsuit can be filed,” the report mentioned.
“Mr. Rokita’s false and misleading statements about alleged misconduct by Dr. Bernard in her profession constitute defamation,” said Attorney Kathleen A. DeLaney, who represents Bernard.
The lawsuit comes on the heels of a cease and desist issued by DeLaney, which was itself a response to Rokita’s continued public comments aimed at Bernard. Rokita went on Fox News on July 13 and called Bernard an “abortion activist acting as a doctor” and said she had a “history of failing to report” and even threatened to go after Bernard’s license.
