Investigators BUST Ocasio-Cortez – Web Of Lies Found!
(ConservativeInsider.org) – Sometimes, people twist the truth or leave out a key piece of context in order to persuade someone to their side of an argument. However, New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took this strategy one step further and straight out lied about a Texas law in order to get her followers to join her pro-abortion cause.
On Friday, April 29, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Texas “Republicans passed a law allowing rapists to sue their victims for getting an abortion.” The New York lawmakers is likely speaking about the southern state’s Senate Bill 8, which makes abortions illegal after a heartbeat is detected and allows people to sue abortion providers or those who help a woman to get one. However, the law does prohibit someone who rapes or assaults a woman from bringing the lawsuit forward.
The Austin Statesman was one of the first news outlets to call AOC out on her lie:
"In Texas, Republicans passed a law allowing rapists to sue their victims for getting an abortion," @AOC tweeted.
That's false, @PolitiFact reports. https://t.co/QZU8RF1OXA

AOC’s statement was clearly wrong on two counts. First off, rapists and assaulters cannot sue anyone under the Texas law, and no one can sue the woman receiving the abortion either, just those who aid and help her in getting one. Ocasio-Cortez has not corrected her tweet, so for now, these fact checks will have to suffice to speak the truth when politicians do not.
