AOC, you Got it Wrong - Brett Kavanaugh's vote in the Dobbs Case did not Criminalize Ectopic Pregnancy Treatments
AOC uses false claims to fuel protests...
AOC is a representative who is, to say the least controversial. Another controversy to arise is her false claim that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh made it illegal to treat ectopic pregnancies in a number of states across the country. This claim was used by AOC as an excuse to support protesters who interrupted Justice Kavanugh’’s dinner Wednesday night in Washington D.C.
She said, “Poor guy. He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines. It’s all very unfair to him. The least they could do is let him eat cake,”
Upset with Brett Kavanaugh’s vote to allow states to individually impose restrictions on abortion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, protestors lined the storefront which led to Brett Kavanaugh having to use the back exit. The restaurant manager was also harassed for allowing Brett Kavanaugh to eat there.
“Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant. Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at the play of the right to congregate and eat dinner.
There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency.”
A Morton Steakhouse spokesperson told reporters.
As it seemed to be a win for AOC in her current voicing of opinion, the reasoning to support the protests is purely false. Ectopic pregnancies occur when an embryo implants itself outside of the uterus. The treatment for such pregnancies remains legal in every state. Dr. Ingrid Skop says it best, “No matter how an obstetrician feels about abortion, we all treat ectopic pregnancies the same way. We feel compelled to treat it as soon as possible.”
“I will never understand the pearl-clutching over these protests. Republicans send people to protest me all the time, sometimes drunk and belligerent. Nobody cares about it unless it’s a Republican in a restaurant. Can someone please explain the obsession because I don’t get it?”
AOC continued on during her Twitter rant.
