When that dumb girl from New York is right, she’s right. If someone has enough sense and decency to see that killing babies is wrong then what are they doing with the Democrats? They should drop out and come over to the Republicans, where we don’t slaughter infants.
Fox: “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., suggested in an Instagram video Saturday night that pro-life Democrats should no longer serve in the wake of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
The conservative-leaning court overturned the landmark 1973 abortion ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which centered on a Mississippi law that banned abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, on Friday.
Currently, there are only two consistently pro-life Democrats left in Congress – one in each chamber – as the national Democratic Party has taken the position that abortion is an essential health care. Democrats in the Senate have sought to codify the right to an abortion into federal law in a vote that failed, but they say will lay the groundwork for midterm campaigning.”

The Supreme Court spoke Friday. “We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s opinion.
AOC does not agree. “If you live in a blue area, when people say ‘go vote,’ that should include primary elections too,” she told her followers. “Because, the thing that a lot of people don’t like to talk about, is the fact that not every Democrat is pro-choice. Okay? So, the ones that aren’t, we really need to reassess if it’s appropriate for them to continue to serve in 2022 because people should have the right to control their own body. This is pretty basic.”
Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison called the decision “illegitimate.” “It isn’t up to you, this illegitimate court, or a bunch of state elected officials to decide what happens to a woman’s body… that choice belongs to a woman and no one else! Period!!!” the DNC chairman said.
But a lonely Democrat is still pro life. “My pro-life position is a distinguishing factor which is important in a 17-way race,” Chicago area Democrat congressional candidate Pastor Chris Butler told press. “If folks want to vote for somebody who is going to go to Congress and take the very unpopular position of abortion on-demand up to the ninth month of birth paid for by tax dollars,” it won’t be him. He should get out of that primary and run as a Republican. It would be good for him and he would be appreciated.
