As you probably know already, the state of Alabama passed a bill recently that effectively bans abortion, and Gov. Kay Ivey signed it into a law recently – which means that it will be the most restrictive abortion law in the U.S.
Liz Wheeler is a conservative commentator and a strong proponent of the law, and she has made it a personal mission to “expose liberal hypocrisy” when it comes to abortion.
She recently shared an image of a six-week-old embryo and wrote that “it’s just two weeks late on your period, and it already has arms and legs forming, fingers and toes, and a heartbeat”.
Her tweet came in response to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who said that 6 weeks pregnant could equal just “2 weeks late on your period” – which, in fact, is true.
She clearly wanted to demonstrate how developed the embryo is. However, Twitter user Emily M was having none of it, and replied with a reasoning that is absolutely spot on!
Many other people quickly joined in, and they gave their own opinions on this extremely controversial topic. However, it seems that the rational discussion has disappeared from the debate, especially with Republicans being overwhelmingly anti-abortion.
