Conservative Commentator Gets Fact Checked Hard After She Tries To Shame Pro-Choicers With A Photo Of A Six-Week-Old Embryo

With states like Georgia, Ohio, and Alabama passing some of the nation's most restrictive abortion laws in an effort to overturn Roe v. Wade, the national debate surrounding issue has once again risen to the forefront of American culture.


Conservative commentator Liz Wheeler believes all abortions are wrong and that Alabama's new law, which criminalizes abortions even in the cases of rape or incest, is perfectly justified.

Wheeler's own personal mission is to "expose liberal hypocrisy," even going so far as to appear in a video series teaching young conservatives how to debate liberals.

On May 7, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about Georgia's new abortion law, which bans abortions after only six weeks.

She pointed out that, while six weeks is an incredibly short amount of time, it's even shorter when you consider it's only two weeks late on your period.

That's when Liz jumped in and oh boy, she had an argument so good it would have been the number one scene in her "owning the libs" educational videos.

Wheeler was attempting to show AOC that a six-week-old embryo was more like a baby than the tiny clump of non-sentient cells it clearly is.

Unfortunately for her, Twitter was on hand to call Wheeler out scientifically.



Having arms means nothing without a brain and, what's more, a woman's body should be her own business regardless of the fetus inside her.

Others pointed out that the picture Wheeler shared wasn't exactly a convincing one...



Another thing this picture fails to capture is how incredibly small the fetus is at this point.


To her credit, Wheeler's ignorant post DID kickstart some interesting conversation about unique perspectives on abortion.



There were, of course, some people who agreed with Wheelers point of view...


...but, scientifically, they had no leg to stand on.

When it comes to civil rights, it seems fairly obvious that those most in need of defense are the living, breathing women whose liberties are under siege.

The fetus that is weeks away from beginning to develop a brain?

Probably not so much.
