The lies behind the defense of abortion
As Alabama and Georgia passed laws restricting or nearly banning abortion, the attacks poured in from every angle. As varied as these attacks were, there was a common theme: dishonesty and falsehood.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for instance, wrote on Twitter, “Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jailtime,incl women victimized by rape+incest.”
Whether intentionally or not, this viral tweet (retweeted 16,000 times) clearly implies that the bill would punish mothers who get abortion. That’s false, and it's a fairly standard lie of abortion defenders.
