It was a news story that burst onto the national headlines shortly after the Supreme Court issued its decision that Roe v. Wade was unconstitutional and abortion is an issue to be handled by the states.

The mother now says that “everything is a lie” about the headline-grabbing story. She was interviewed behind a door by Telemundo following the father’s confession for the crime. MRC Latino shared the footage.
