Hundreds of Indiana doctors across specialties say a decision by the state's Medical Licensing Board to reprimand Dr. Caitlin Bernard sets a dangerous precedent about what doctors can and can't say.
Caitlin Bernard, an Indiana OB-GYN, has been under scrutiny from her state's Republican attorney general since speaking out about the impact of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
In a new lawsuit, Dr. Caitlin Bernard says Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita has sought health records for her patients, including a 10-year-old rape victim she treated.
The story of a young rape victim in Ohio who had to travel out of state for an abortion this summer is recalling painful memories for an older generation.
The harassment began soon after her young patient became flashpoint in the national debate over abortion, Dr. Caitlin Bernard told NPR. "It's honestly been very hard for me, for my family," she said.
Dr. Caitlin Bernard has threatened to sue Republican Attorney General Todd Rokita for "false and misleading statements" he made after she provided a medication abortion for the girl from Ohio.
