‘This is a lie’! AOC’s case against the Alabama anti-abortion bill is dripping with dishonesty

You might want to sit down for this … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t being entirely honest about the Alabama anti-abortion bill: Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jailtime,incl women victimized by rape+incest. Of course, no added punishments for rapists. It’s going to @GovernorKayIvey‘s desk. She will decide the future of women’s rights in Alabama.https://t.co/IRR0EtsxHp — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 15, 2019 The bill would be the strictest anti-abortion legislation in the country, and even some pro-lifers think it goes too far. But does it do what AOC says it does? No. Even the New York Times article she cites refutes her claim that victims of rape or incest would face jail time for getting abortions: The Alabama …

Wait … what? Young Turks journo thinks he’s busted Meghan McCain as a pro-life fraud (spoiler: he has not)

As Twitchy told you earlier this week, Meghan McCain warned Democrats that “history will judge them for” their pro-abort radicalism and support for infanticide: I’m pro-life, and not in the talking point of “not for me but okay for other people” sense. I stand by what I said this morning, if the Democratic Party wants to be the party of late term abortion and infanticide, they won’t just lose – history will judge them for what they did. — Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) February 26, 2019 Two days later, Ken Klippenstein, senior investigative reporter for the Young Turks, is pretty sure he’s exposed McCain as a pro-life fraud: pic.twitter.com/VhwehFzfQa — Ken Klippenstein (@kenklippenstein) February 28, 2019 Guess confronting her directly was …

Conservatives call for Netflix boycott after company threatens to pull out of Georgia

Conservatives have their nickers in a mighty twist over Netflixs recent announcement that it may cease production in Georgia if the states anti-choice law goes into effect. The company, which made the announcement on May 28 in Variety, is following the lead of prominent members of the industry who have vowed to move productions elsewhere in the wake of Georgia passing a controversial heartbeat bill. The law bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which usually occurs around six weeks of pregnancy, a time when many women do not realize that they are even pregnant. The company is the first major Hollywood studio to weigh in on the legislation, though this isn’t its first foray into using its clout …

How Democrats Can Stop Playing Defense on Abortion

The Democrats must defeat the GOPs latest effort to impose the Bible as the law of America (which I have long referred to as six weeks into pregnancyoften before a woman is even aware shes pregnant. And of course the headline-grabbing, extreme announced he didnt support what have been called the three exceptions to abortion: rape, incest, and life of the mother. Rather, he onlyshared the exact same view, and not only did neither face a backlash from the GOP base, the 2016 GOP platformdid not include exceptions for rape or incest. So, stunning as this sounds in 2019, the last, best hope to stop the GOP from achieving its goal banning abortion in state after state is to pass …

Women Open Up About Their Abortion Stories With The Hashtag #YouKnowMe As Response To Alabama Abortion Law

Kay Ivey signed the controversial abortion bill passed by The Alabama Senate passed the bill 25-6, that …

Samantha Bee Schools F*cking Idiot Senators After Alabama Abortion Ban

Once again, Samantha Bee is the extreme new abortion ban bill. I have a confession, the host said at the top of this weeks Full Frontal. Last night, I completely bailed on Alyssa Milanos sex strike. Shrek was on, I got very riled up. Ooh, the things I would do to that gingerbread man. Clearly the strike didnt work anyway, she continued. Today Alabama effectively banned abortion from conception with no exceptions for rape and incest. Speaking of Alabama, no exceptions for rape and incest is also Roy Moores dating profile. Bee went on to warn that while Alabamas bill is the most far-reaching abortion ban this year, it is not alone, pointing to this weeks episode of The Last …

Mothers who have abortions: what to do with TVs third rail?

Most women who terminate a pregnancy are already mothers but we rarely see that on screen. Australian comedy The Letdown is the latest show to tackle the taboo We got a beautiful email from a viewer last week, says Sarah Scheller, co-creator of the ABCs The Letdown. It said, That was my scenario. I cant believe I just saw it on screen. Women who have abortions are only just now beginning to see themselves depicted on screens, but for a certain subgroup women who are already mothers when they decide to terminate the taboo is stronger than ever. Its a taboo that Schellers low-key comedy was determined to quietly break. The Letdown follows Audrey: a middle-class woman, played by Schellers …

States are prosecuting women in the name of ‘fetal rights’. We should all be alarmed | Moira Donegan

The indictment of Marshae Jones is part of a larger trend of states criminalizing women for unintended pregnancy outcomes In December, 28-year-old Marshae Jones saw a woman she didnt like, Ebony Jemison, in the parking lot of a Dollar General in Pleasant Grove, Alabama, and confronted her. The fight turned physical, and Jemison shot Jones, who was five months pregnant, in the stomach. Jones was rushed to a hospital. She survived, but lost her pregnancy. The fetus had been struck by a bullet. Yet a grand jury indicted Jones not Jemison for manslaughter. Under Alabama law a fetus has the same rights as a living person, and the grand jury ruled that Jones had an obligation to avoid anything that …

PARTY OF SCIENCE: Chris Cuomo says the pro-life position is more about feelings than fact

As Twitchy reported earlier, CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Monday night had as guests Rick Santorum and Christine Quinn debating abortion, with Cuomo pretty obviously siding with Quinn, who offered up scientific facts such as, “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.” It’s a good thing we have the party of science to set us straight on such issues as when that clump of cells becomes a baby (when it’s “wanted” and when it “looks” like a baby … science). Cuomo must have received a lot of backlash from viewers because on Tuesday morning he explained the need to explain “the medical realities” of the procedures … which, of course, CNN will never, ever show. Having non …

‘My body anatomy is being taken from me!’ Pro-abort’s heartbeat bill rant almost makes Alyssa Milano sound sane (almost) [video]

Alyssa Milano and pals have been pretty nutty about the prospect of Georgia acknowledging that unborn babies with heartbeats are people, but they’ve got nothing on this gal: This child is screaming about her inability to kill a human being with a heartbeat. pic.twitter.com/zKYlJIityN — Kelly Campagna (@warriorwoman91) April 3, 2019 If that video is a parody, it’s a damn good one. “I haven’t looked up the facts,” but trust me when I say that this is a big f*cking deal. “I HAVENT LOOKED UP THE FACTS” 🤣🤣🤣 — Ian (@FreeSpeechian) April 3, 2019 Her “body anatomy” is being taken from her, you guys! Well, maybe just her brain. Sweetheart, believe it or not it’s actually really easy not to …

‘WTF is she smoking?’ Dem Rep. Jackie Speier takes a page from AOC’s book to argue for abortion rights [video]

Today, Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier took the stage at a “Stop the Bans” rally to argue against anti-abortion laws: At the #StopTheBans rally, Rep. Jackie Speier says she is not ashamed of her second-trimester abortion, that she had for medical reasons, and criticized male state lawmakers for thinking “it’s ok to send women to prison or give them the death penalty for having an abortion.” pic.twitter.com/mJLaNBFW8t — Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) May 21, 2019 First of all: The sole exemptions for the Alabama abortion ban, which is arguably the strictest in the country, are to protect the life of the pregnant woman or if the fetus cannot survive. It seems that Rep. Speier’s second-trimester abortion fell into one of those two …
