Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is at it again-this time maligning the “fetal heartbeat bill” signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) on Tuesday.

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted an anti-abortion bill that was passed by the Georgia governor on Tuesday, calling it a “backdoor ban” on the procedure.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Tuesday signed the “fetal heartbeat bill,” a measure that makes it illegal to have an abortion after a heartbeat is detected in an embryo. This typically takes about six weeks.
“‘6 weeks pregnant’ = 2 weeks late on your period,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.
“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,” she added.
