AOC calls Alabama's abortion ban 'a brutal form of oppression'

"Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who has emerged as a leader among progressive Democrats, denounced Alabama’s abortion ban after it was signed into law on Wednesday night.

She was joined by most of the party’s presidential candidates.

“Abortion bans aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women. From limiting birth control to banning comprehensive sex ed, U.S. religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.

“Ultimately, this is about women’s power,” the freshman congresswoman continued. “When women are in control of their sexuality, it threatens a core element underpinning right-wing ideology: patriarchy. It’s a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the 1 essential thing a person should command: their own body.”

2. So glad AOC hit the Christian bullshit on the head.

This is all about fundy Xians trying to impose their fucking make-believe on the rest of us.

BTW - where are the denunciations from the so-called moderate, “normal” Christians? Silence =enabling.

3. It's forced labor. And all forced labor is slavery.
