The Future Democratic Voters Project and the 10-Year-Old Ohio Rape Victim

Posted on | July 15, 2022 | Comments Off on The Future Democratic Voters Project and the 10-Year-Old Ohio Rape Victim

One of the things about political tribalism is that it encourages participants to think of politics as a fight for survival — Us and Them — in which there are no rules. The Democratic Party has made identity politics part of their core belief system, which interwoven with the strategic idea that demographic trends (particularly the growth of non-white minority populations) is the key to their obtaining uncontested political hegemony. This explains, among other things, why Donald Trump’s desire to enforce U.S. immigration law was regarded by Democrats as a species of “hate,” because they view unrestricted immigration as a means of rapidly growing the Hispanic which, in turn, they expect will ultimately provide Democrats with an insuperable electoral majority. This is not a “conspiracy theory”; it’s a synopsis of what has happened to California over the past 30 years, for example.

Democrats view illegal aliens as part of their party’s constituency, because of what we may dub The Future Democratic Voters Project, and as a consequence, will do anything necessary to prevent these law-breaking foreigners from being deported or otherwise inconvenienced. This is why, for example, Joe Biden has insisted that Border Patrol agents must be punished despite the fact that an investigation cleared them of wrongdoing — it’s a symbolic gesture of anti-Trump solidarity. And it’s also a major contributing factor to Trump Derangement Syndrome quite generally. Of all the things Trump did, what was really unforgivable from a Democratic (and establishment GOP) point of view was that he threatened to break up the Bipartisan Open Borders Consensus of which the late John McCain was a leader. Meanwhile, in Ohio . . .

Maria Vargas-Pion, a reporter for Spanish-language TV channel Telemundo, somehow found the home address of the mother of the 10-year-old girl whose abortion made national headlines, and scored a brief interview in which the woman appeared to defend the 27-year-old illegal immigrant who impregnated her daughter:

Journalists asking the important questions? Wow, what a concept!

Bonilla’s belief that (a) the mother of the girl is also an illegal alien, (b) the child rapist Gershon Fuentes is the family’s primary breadwinner, and therefore (c) the mother didn’t want Fuentes arrested for raping the girl, because (d) the whole family might get deported back to the sh**hole country they came from — probably explains a lot about how this story played out. The Indiana abortionist Dr. Caitlin Bernard apparently violated patient privacy laws by telling the media about this case, which she spun as proving why Ohio’s “extreme” abortion law was wrong. However, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost says the law has a “medical emergency” provision that would have permitted the girl to get an abortion (presumably because she is so young that pregnancy and childbirth would be traumatic). Is it possible that the girl was referred to an out-of-state clinic because Dr. Bernard was known to be “cooperative” in such situations? According to Fox News, in her paperwork on the case, Dr. Bernard claimed that the 10-year-old had been impregnated by another minor, i.e., she wasn’t really a victim of rape, so no criminal investigation, please? Selling this tale as a moral defense of unlimited abortion “rights” would have been more complicated if all the facts of the case were known, so in talking to reporters Dr. Bernard didn’t mention anything that would lead readers to suspect that the “Ohio girl” was actually a Mexican girl, probably in the country illegally, who was raped by her mother’s 27-year-old illegal alien boyfriend from Guatemala.

This explains the vagueness of the original story, which caused many of us to suspect it was a hoax: If a 10-year-old girl is pregnant, a crime has been committed, but the story said nothing about whether the child rapist had been arrested. And then, eventually, we learned that it was not until Tuesday — the day after PJM’s Megan Fox and Ohio Attorney General Yost appeared on Fox News — that cops arrested the rapist:

A detective testified Wednesday at an initial court appearance for the 27-year-old suspect that Columbus police learned about the girl’s pregnancy after her mother alerted Franklin County Children Services on June 22, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

Look at the calendar: Police were informed on Wednesday, June 22, but it was not until Tuesday, July 12, nearly three weeks later, that Fuentes was arrested. This raises more questions, including whether it was coincidental that Fuentes wasn’t arrested until after Megan Fox and Dave Yost went on Fox News to raise hell about this story.


Despite everything going on here — the one-source story based on the word of an Indiana abortionist, the delay in arresting the perpetrator, the role of Biden’s open-border policy in enabling this criminal atrocity — still the media continue to act as if it’s a “gotcha” for Republicans:

‘Oh, God, no’: Republicans fear
voter backlash after Indiana child rape case


Republicans shocked a 10-year-old
can get pregnant after Ohio rape victim
abortion story proves true

NBC News

10-Year-Old Ohio Girl Became
Flash Point in Abortion Debate

New York Times

All of these takes are so wrong that one supposes there must be a central campaign to organize this deliberate wrongness. Are Republicans “shocked a 10-year-old can get pregnant,” as NBC News claims? As if pregnant 10-year-olds are so ordinary — so commonplace — that we should not be shocked? Oh, by the way, while I’m at it, I should mention that this girl just turned 10, so it’s likely that her mother’s Guatemalan boyfriend got her pregnant when she was only nine, and may have been abusing the girl for who knows how long before the pregnancy occurred. And, as I said in my first post on this subject (“A Story Too Good to Check?” July 4), I actually did some research:

The extreme youth of the alleged victim is what made the headline so shocking, and I actually checked the National Institutes of Health to make sure I wasn’t alone in finding this highly unusual. The median age of menarche (i.e., onset of menstruation, generally taken as meaning when a female becomes physically capable of pregnancy) in the United States is 11.9, about three months earlier than in the 1990s. About 10% of females reach menarche by age 10. Precocious puberty is slightly correlated with earlier sexual activity — the median age of first intercourse is 15.4 for girls reaching menache by age 10, compared to 16.6 for girls reaching menarche at age 14 or older. In general, blacks and Hispanics reach menarche earlier than white girls, but the differences are not dramatic.
Still, a 10-year-old girl getting pregnant is rare enough in the United States that I had difficulty finding any statistical data on the phenomenon. When you’re talking about something with far less than a 1% probability, good luck finding reliable data.

And last Friday (“HOAX? Biden Repeats Unverified Story About 10-Year-Old Ohio Girl’s Abortion”), I offered still more relevant research:

How rare is a pregnant 10-year-old? Rare enough that there is a listing of every 10-year-old known to have given birth, and it has happened just three times in the United States since 2000:

* March 2009: A 10-year-old Haitian girl in Lantana, Florida, became pregnant after a 33-year-old man [Fede Datilus] raped her when she was 9. Her father learned of her pregnancy only when he took her to the clinic when she suffered labor contractions on March 18, 2009. The same day, she gave birth naturally to a full-term boy. . . . She confided that she had been afraid that she and her father would be deported to Haiti — a threat the rapist had used against her. Datilus was sentenced to life imprisonment for raping a minor under 12 years, to which 5 years for impregnating her was added.
* April 2008: Isabel Chasearez’s 10-year-old daughter, from St. Anthony, Idaho, gave birth by cesarean section to a girl weighing approximately 6 lb (2.7 kg) at Madison Memorial Hospital in Rexburg after her mother’s boyfriend [Guadalupe Gutierrez-Juarez] raped her. The man, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, was jailed on one felony count of rape with impregnation; Chasearez was jailed as well for failing to provide proper prenatal care. Juarez was sentenced to 5 years to life.
* April 2006: A young girl in Abbeville, South Carolina, gave birth by cesarean section. Her 26-year-old stepfather, William Edward Ronca, raped her. The baby was placed up for adoption. Ronca admitted to having molested the girl over a two-year period and was sentenced to 25 years in prison and is currently incarcerated in the Allendale Correctional Institution.

Three times in more than 20 years. If you went all the way back to 1969 (i.e, more than 50 years), you’d only add five more cases to the list.

Pregnant 10-year-olds are very, very rare in the United States, but somewhat more common in Latin America and, while it would obviously be unfair to impugn the culture of an entire continent based on a relative handful of cases, a few examples will perhaps suffice to make the point:

  • BOLIVIA, 2010 — A 10-year-old girl from El Torno gave birth by cesarean section to a girl weighing 2.3 kg (5.1 lb) at the Instituto Maternológico Percy Boland in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Three of the girl’s brothers raped her. They were 15, 17, and 19. The youngest one was her child’s biological father.
  • BRAZIL, 2012 — In late December 2011, Antônio Lisboa Filho, age 28, discovered that his ten-and-a-half-year-old daughter, whom he had been raping regularly since she was eight, was 4 months pregnant. He fled from Coroatá, Maranhão with his wife Maria Alves Conceição and their other children, abandoning the girl with her maternal grandmother, Francisca Maria Conceição. Conceição alerted authorities of the rape and the parents’ subsequent escape. As the pregnancy had advanced past the legal cut-off date for abortions, the girl delivered the baby via cesarean section in early May 2012, a month before term. Police also suspected the man of raping the girl’s 8-year-old sister.
  • PERU, 2012 — Laura Marina Villanueva’s older sister’s 45-year-old companion, Gaudencio Castañeda Pulido, a former soldier and her neighbor, raped the girl three times, just before her birthday on June 24; he had previously impregnated the girl’s then-15-year-old sister. Her pregnancy was discovered in late September, at 19 weeks, by chance after she was admitted for a snake bite. Castañeda Pulido went on the run when the discovery was reported in the media and continued threatening to kill the girl and her mother, Nidia Villanueva Tolentino. On January 24, 2012, she delivered a 2.21 kilograms (4.9 lb) boy by cesarean section, whom she named Justin, after singer Justin Bieber. Castañeda Pulido was sentenced to 35 years in jail.
  • PARAGUAY, 2015 — The 10-year-old girl was brought to an Asunción hospital by her mother, who believed that she had a tumor, where doctors discovered that she was five months pregnant and alerted authorities. They told the mother that her daughter’s life was at risk and she requested permission from the Paraguayan government for an abortion, which was denied. The case caused debate nationally and abroad about Paraguay’s strict anti-abortion laws. The stepfather fled, but was arrested in Boquerón, Caazapá Department. He denied paternity but a DNA test came out positive. Mainumby’s mother had denounced Benítez for sexual abuse of her daughter four times in the previous year, yet authorities never intervened. After the pregnancy’s discovery, she was herself arrested and charged with negligence and sexual abuse of a child, and sentenced to two months in prison for the former.

This list could be extended quite a bit, because 10-year-old girls in Latin America have given birth to more than 20 babies since 2004. As I say, one can’t condemn an entire continent’s population based on a few extreme cases, but my point is that when I saw a story about a pregnant 10-year-old in Ohio, I assumed either (a) the story was phony or (b) this case involved immigrants, probably from Latin America.

So, what was presented by the media as a morality tale about the importance of abortion “rights” turns out to be, instead, a story about social problems caused by illegal immigration. Ace of Spades offers some enlightened legal commentary:

Question: If this mother had some kind of deal permitting this man sexual access to her nine year old child, and then couldn’t decide if she wanted to abort his baby or not… is this really the kind of thing we have to contort ourselves writing exceptions and corner-cases in the law to cover?
Does the law have to take into consideration every single monstrous perversion the human mind can contemplate?
And note that the Attorney General already stated he believes that this was all a lie from the start — that Ohio’s abortion law contains an “emergency medical exception” clause that would cover this case.
A thread collected at Twichy notes that we are discovering that there are quite a few r@pes of both the forcible and statutory kind which are never detected or punished — because Planned Parenthood dodges its reporting requirements and, of course, “disposes of the evidence.”

There are no “winners” in these stories, you see. The tribalism of identity politics inspired the media to try to score points at the expense of Republicans for outlawing abortion, to which we naturally objected and, once the facts were known, it seemed it might more appropriately be scored a loss for Democrats, as it is their open-borders policy that permitted this to happen in Ohio (instead of Mexico or Guatemala or some other miserable sh**thole country where such atrocities seem to be more common). It does no good for us to clutch our pearls and bemoan the media’s politically motivated promotion of misleading narratives, when the real problem is that the Democratic Party has irreversibly committed itself to every evil thing imaginable — from transgender toddlers to taxpayer-funded late-term abortion to transforming the country by importing millions of impoverished foreigners (who, of course, are expected to vote Democrat). They are the Party of Evil, the Party of Crime, the Party of Perversion. And our so-called “mainstream” media are merely Democratic operatives with bylines.
