AOC Spreads Misinformation About Abortion
As people protest and rejoice in the wake of the overturn of Roe, some are spreading dangerous misinformation about the post-Roe nation.
From Breitbart. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez … is lying about ectopic pregnancies and abortion, which could get women killed.
A few days ago, AOC was reveling in the fact that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was chased out of a D.C. steakhouse by menacing protesters. But during her revel, she spread a bald-faced lie….
“Poor guy,” AOC tweeted. “He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines….”
What AOC is doing is spreading health misinformation to her 13.2 million followers and beyond.
In no state is a surgical procedure for an ectopic pregnancy outlawed.
In no state is it illegal to remove an unborn child who has died.
And not only is this a lie, but it’s also a talking point among Democrats. On top of AOC, Reps. Judy Chu (D-CA) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) have said the same….
The worst part of this is how dangerous these dishonest statements are.
The Mayo Clinic describes the dangers of an ectopic pregnancy this way:
Pregnancy begins with a fertilized egg. Normally, the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus.
An ectopic pregnancy can cause your fallopian tube to burst open. Without treatment, the ruptured tube can lead to life-threatening bleeding….
If you have an ectopic pregnancy, you must have it taken care of as soon as possible, but here’s AOC telling women whose lives are in real danger that the procedure that might save their lives is outlawed in half the country….
