Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spoke with Anderson Cooper aboutTexas Governor Greg Abbott’s six-week abortion ban; she calls Abbott “deeply ignorant.”
“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,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“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,’” AOC added.
Conservatives had a strong reaction to the congresswoman’s appearance, many citing that using progressive, woke language may be detrimental to her argument.
