‘This Is a Lie’: AOC Gets Roasted Over ‘False’ Facts on Alabama’s Abortion Law

Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

Conservatives aren’t letting freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) run on “false” information regarding Alabama’s strictest and controversial abortion bill.

Alabama Republican state Senate lawmakers are looking to overturn Roe v. Wade as they sent the bill, Human Life Protection Act, off to the governor that would restrict most abortions, including rape and incest, which was then signed on Wednesday by Gov. Kay Ivey (R), as IJR News reported.

“To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God,” Ivey said in a statement.

Prior to the bill’s signing, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jailtime,incl [sic] women victimized by rape+incest.”

“Everything about this tweet by @AOC is false,” Caleb Hull tweeted, adding that women receiving abortions aren’t given time in jail, instead, the doctors face jail time “if they illegally perform abortions.”

“This is a lie,” Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles also took a swipe at Ocasio-Cortez.

“No woman upon whom an abortion is performed or attempted to be performed shall be criminally or civilly liable,” Section 5 of the bill reads. It adds that any licensed physician who performs an abortion due to serious health issues to the woman is also not “criminally or civilly liable for those actions.”

The bill, however, would make no expectation for pregnancies resulted by rape or incest.

After getting called out, Ocasio-Cortez attempted to blame Twitter’s 280-character limit and her critics for failing to pick up on “context clues” in her inaccurate tweet. Her critics, however, didn’t let her get away with it.

Check it out:

“For those saying that it is ‘Republican men’ that are leading the charge against abortion, Ivey is a woman,” Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra also noted.

The abortion bill will take effect six months following the governor’s signature.
