Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once again found herself to be in the wrong. The New York Rep tried to claim that the new Alabama Pro-Life Law was somehow going to cause women to be charged or felonies. Liz Wheeler from One America News Network called her out for lying. AOC decided to stand her ground and as you can see this is why she usually runs from debates.
It all started when AOC made the following lie on Twitter.
“Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jailtime,incl women victimized by rape+incest.
She would have been fine had she not drawn the attention of OANN’s Liz Wheeler who was more than happy to correct the lying government official on Twitter.
“This is a lie. Under no circumstances would women be jailed for abortions. The abortionist would be penalized.
Tell the truth, @AOC. You’re trying to scare women into supporting abortion. Why don’t you tell the truth & see if women support your extreme abortion agenda then?”
Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at Wheeler for correcting her lie.
“It’s a felony punishable by jail, incl cases of women pregnant by rape or incest. Twitter is 280 chars – read the context clues in grammar of the tweet.
But good to know you’re here to promote criminalizing medical providers aiding victims of rape and incest! good job.”
But Wheeler was not afraid and refused to allow AOC’s lie to spread.
“280 characters is plenty of room to tell truth. It’d never be a felony for women. Period.
It’s despicable to use victims of child rape as justification for 1M abortions every year… because you Dems aren’t seeking exemption for rape/incest, you want all abortion legal always.”
AOC then pulled out some elementary school reasoning and tried to claim Wheeler was in the wrong.
“Actually it *would* be a felony for women – if those women are medical providers. See? According to your own semantic standard, you “lied.”
We can fact-check obvious semantics all day and make absurd bad faith claims if that’s how you want be. But I have better uses for my time.”
This is pathetic. AOC should have corrected herself and apologized. But instead, she just kept pushing her lie. As the legislation proves AOC wrong.
“No woman upon whom an abortion is performed or attempted to be performed shall be criminally or civilly liable. Furthermore, no physician confirming the serious health risk to the child’s mother shall be criminally or civilly liable for those actions.”
This is why AOC is afraid of debating with Ben Shapiro or Candice Owens, she wouldn’t stand a chance. I’m surprised she even tried to debate Wheeler as she was clearly outmatched.
