Indiana medical board reprimands doctor who publicly discussed providing abortion services to 10-year-old Ohio rape victim

Dr. Caitlin Bernard is sworn in during a hearing in front of the Indiana state medical licensing board on Thursday.

(CNN) — An Indianapolis doctor who publicly revealed she provided abortion services to a 10-year-old Ohio rape victim last year has been reprimanded and fined by Indiana’s medical licensing board after it determined the disclosure violated federal and state patient privacy laws.

The board on Thursday found Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an obstetrician-gynecologist, liable on three counts of violating patient privacy laws after Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita filed a complaint against the doctor in November.
