“Conservative news media questioned whether the girl existed. Jesse Watters, a host on Fox News, suggested that the story could be a “hoax” meant to buttress the abortion-rights position. The Wall Street Journal published an editorial on Tuesday with the headline: “An Abortion Story Too Good to Confirm.”
The Wall Street Journal editorial page called it a “fanciful tale” in a piece representing the official editorial position of the paper, headlined “An Abortion Story Too Good To Confirm.” Fox News’s Emily Compagno, co-host of Outnumbered, told viewers abortion activists were ignoring real rapes to propel their cause: “What I find so deeply offensive, is that they had to made up a fake one!”
