(WRDW/WAGT) -- Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling Georgia's recently signed heartbeat law a "backdoor ban" on abortion.
Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to criticize the law.
“6 weeks pregnant” = 2 weeks late on your period.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 8, 2019
Most of the men writing these bills don’t know the first thing about a woman’s body outside of the things they want from it. It’s relatively common for a woman to have a late period + not be pregnant.
So this is a backdoor ban. https://t.co/xWd9GAj51b
Georgia's bill is one of a handful of similar bills being passed in different states across the country in recent years.
