As we’ve mentioned this week, the memo has gone out and liberals have decided that ectopic pregnancies are the way to get conservatives to go pro-abortion. Late last month, actress Halle Berry was sending around a list of “abortions” that if women don’t get, they die. Among these “abortions” were ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages. AOC weighed in on the matter by declaring that people in the 1800s didn’t even know what an ectopic pregnancy was (spoiler: they did).
So it’s no surprise that squad member Ayanna Pressley brought up ectopic pregnancies in what Acyn must have thought was a pretty spectacular own to have posted the clip.
Pressley to Hawley: When an ectopic pregnancy ruptures what are the chances it can be carried safely to term? And you know what, just to make this clearer, I’m looking for a number between 0 and 100 pic.twitter.com/SqqGIPUw4b

Pressley spends 2 minutes showing she has no idea what she’s talking about. Hawley is correct that treatment for ectopic is not considered an abortion (bc the pregnancy is non-viable) and is legal everywhere. https://t.co/ecxaWxnsLG

An ectopic pregnancy cannot be carried to term, is not an abortion, and Pressley knows this. Planned Parenthood even admits this. pic.twitter.com/KxgJ8fPaQ9

They use this to justify the ~95% of abortions that are made simply out of convenience. Abortions where the woman doesn’t think she can care for the child, doesn’t want for her career to be interrupted, or simply doesn’t want the child.

The sheer number of tweeters thinking that Pressley has a coherent understanding of what she is talking about is scary.

Using ectopic pregnancy in this way is disgusting, I know women who were devastated when they lost babies due to this medical condition. The idea they could be accused of aborting is repellent and it has no place in this debate.

Again, feelings over facts.

Pressley knows EXACTLY what she’s talking about. It’s why she refuses to allow Hawley answer the question. Instead of the truth, Pressley wants to throw out a strawman argument because she knows the Truth is not on her side

If their argument about actual abortion was sound, they wouldn’t need to do this…but here we are

Interesting that they are devolving to spreading fear through easily debunked disinformation.
You’d think for such a hot button issue they would be able to make a solid argument without lying.

Omg the woman is a moron! Reclaiming her time because she doesn’t want to hear the truth and to continue on with her false narrative !

The very definition she uses does NOT say “abortion”. Because the definition of abortion is dependent on a VIABLE pregnancy.
This is 100% done on purpose and huge props to Ms. Hawley for pushing back. Don’t let them play these games.

She’s so confident in her ignorance though.

Even Planned Parenthood says that treatment of an ectopic pregnancy isn’t abortion, and they know about abortion.
