AOC Gets Blowback For ‘Disturbing’ Abortion Tweet


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets blowback for her ‘disturbing’ abortion tweet.

First, she’s just wrong. 6 weeks pregnant is actually 6 weeks post conception. They ask when your last period is, then backdate it for 2 weeks because most women with normal cycles ovulate 2 weeks before their period. Therefore, 6 weeks pregnant is 4 weeks after your missed period. Most women who don’t live in denial will know when they’re late and might be pregnant.

TDW:

Soon after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) signed legislation known as the “heartbeat bill,” which bans abortions in the state when the unborn child’s heartbeat can be detected, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) weighed in with a tweet critics are slamming as callous and misinformed.

“‘6 weeks pregnant’ = 2 weeks late on your period,” the socialist posted. “Most of the men writing these bills don’t know the first thing about a woman’s body outside of the things they want from it. It’s relatively common for a woman to have a late period + not be pregnant. So this is a backdoor ban.”

Of course, being six-weeks pregnant is a lot more than just being late on your period — ask any woman who’s miscarried or had a baby. At that time in a pregnancy, the unborn child is developing facial features and has a beating heart. Moreover, Ocasio-Cortez is misinformed about the authors of the legislation, a majority of whom are women, not men.
