Correct if I am wrong, but I feel there is a far simpler and in fact better way to say “menstruating persons.” I believe that it is something that anyone who had taken a biology course knows all about. The only people who can menstruate are women. It’s odd that AOC doesn’t know that, considering, from what I understand, she is one. But despite AOC’s inability to understand this basic concept, she was quick to attack Gov Abbott for apparently knowing more about pregnancy than she does.
AOC was disgusted by the following exchange Abbott had:
“Why force a rape or incest victim to carry a pregnancy to term?” A reporter asked Gov Abbott.
“It doesn’t require that at all because obviously, it provides at least six weeks for a person to be able to get an abortion,” Abbot replied. “So for one, it doesn’t provide that. That said, however, let’s make something very clear.
“Rape is a crime and Texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas by aggressively going after, arresting them, and prosecuting and getting them off the streets,” Abbott said. “So goal number one in Texas is to eliminate rape so no woman, no person will be a victim of rape. ”
“What did you think when you heard that?” Cooper asked AOC.
“Well I find Governor Abbott’s comments disgusting, and I think there’s twofold. One I don’t know if he is familiar with a menstruating person’s body. In fact, I do know that he’s not familiar with a female or menstruating person’s body because if he did, he would know that you don’t have six weeks,” she said.
“I’m sorry we have to break down Biology 101 on national television, but in case no one has informed him before in his life, six weeks pregnant means two weeks late for your period,’” she said. “And two weeks late on your period for any person — any person with a menstrual cycle — can happen if you’re stressed, if your diet changes, or for really no reason at all. So you don’t have six weeks.”

I don’t condone abortion, but in the instance of rape/incest, I understand why a woman would not be willing to have the baby. For these particular instances, there is always adoption, and if the woman doesn’t want to do that then the legislation Abbott just signed into law still gives a woman up to six weeks to take a morning-after pill. And despite AOC’s “expertise” on the matter, a woman can determine that she is pregnant before week six. So really Abbott is being more than fair here. It’s just that AOC wants the ability to murder her baby at will.
