The mother of a 10-year-old pregnant girl who traveled across state lines for an abortion gave a bizarre interview to Spanish language TV station Telemundo.

The woman told Telemundo on Thursday that her daughter is "fine," and she suggested that the news media lied about her daughter's alleged rapist, Gerson Fuentes, 27.

A reporter visited Fuentes' home when the victim's mother answered the door. She did not give her name, nor did she want to be on camera, according to The Daily Wire.

The girl's mother seemed anxious and desperate to deny the allegations against her alleged live-in lover.

"Everything they are saying against him is a lie," the woman said in Spanish, that was translated to English by Telemundo.

The mother said her 10-year-old daughter "is fine".

Fuentes was arrested and charged with first-degree rape on Thursday. His arrest came more than a week after the girl's story went national - and only after GOP lawmakers and conservative media outlets questioned the validity of the story.

Fuentes allegedly lives in the home with the girl's mother and other minor children.

Jorge Bonilla, who serves as Media Research Center's director of MRC Latino, speculated that the woman is frightened because she is illegal, and she feared deportation or the removal of her other children from the home.

"The mother's distressed defense of the rapist suggests that, a: She is also here illegally and fears deportation," said Bonilla. "B: The defendant is the family's sole source of income, c: There is a likelihood of other children in the home, d: Mom is exposed to removal of the children under dependency proceedings (failure to protect)."

Twitter expressed outrage after the interview. Many believe an American citizen who raped a child would have been arrested immediately and the children removed from the home by CPS.

Question: Do you believe the defendant was not arrested immediately because he is illegal?

Major drug store retailers are limiting purchases of Plan B "morning after" pills to just 3 purchases per person.

A spokesperson for CVS told The Wall Street Journal that Plan B emergency contraceptive pills are temporarily limited to three purchases.

CVS said it had ample supply of the pills available but wanted to ensure "equitable access and consistent supply." Demand for the pills surged after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last week.

Walgreens told the WSJ it is not limiting purchases of the pills.

Rite Aid told ABC News it limited the purchases of the birth control pills to three after seeing a spike in demand in stores.

Big-box chain stores such as Costco and Walmart are also limiting purchases of Plan B.

Experts say the reversal of Roe v. Wade disproportionately affects Black women and Latinas who are more likely to use abortion as a form of birth control.

Black women in Mississippi accounted for 74% of abortions in 2019, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Experts say the reversal of Roe v. Wade disproportionately affects Black women who are more likely to use abortion as a form of birth control.

The U.S. Supreme Court allows individual states to decide whether abortions are legal.

26 states have banned abortions or are more likely to ban abortions in most or all circumstances, The NY Post reports.

Experts say Black women and other women of color live in states where abortion bans exist.

For example, Black people make up about 38% of Mississippi's population, where abortions are banned.

Planned Parenthood offers low-cost or free abortions in underserved communities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Black women are 4 times more likely than white women to use abortion as a form of birth control.

Latina women are twice as likely to get abortions, according to 2019 data from the CDC.

Black women are also least likely to consider other forms of birth control, including condoms, the morning after pill or abstinence.

Health experts say the high rates of abortion among Black and Latina women can be traced to disparities in healthcare access, including lack of health insurance and the cost of contraceptives.

Black women in Mississippi accounted for 74% of abortions in 2019, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

On Friday, the US Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, returning the decision to individual states 50 years after Roe v. Wade first became law.

Pro-lifers celebrated on the courthouse steps.

The Supreme Court's decision sparked outrage around the country. Many women feared pregnancy will cramp their lifestyle if they are unable to abort their unwanted babies.

Some Twitter users noted that overturning Roe v. Wade had one positive outcome: Democrats now refer to people who give birth as "women" again.

The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 SCOTUS decision that the US Constitution protects a pregnant woman's choice to abort her baby.

The ruling means women in the U.S. no longer have constitutional rights to an abortion.

The six conservative justices voted to overturn Roe v. Wade while the three liberal justices voted against it.

The SCOTUS' decision was announced on Friday, after weeks of death threats and turmoil in the streets.

Anti-abortionists celebrated the decision on the courthouse steps and around the country.

The decision was expected after a clerk leaked an internal memo to Politico.com in May indicating that the SCOTUS justices had the votes to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The ruling will force pregnant women to find unsafe alternatives to abortions. Many women will be forced to travel out of states where abortions are now illegal.

Ohio is one of the states that is expected to make abortions illegal in most situations. Abortions are already illegal in Texas and Georgia.

The U.S. Supreme Court also expanded gun rights in NY state, striking down a law that required gun owners to show cause why they needed a gun license.
