Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Friday attacked the GOP when she claimed it “doesn’t care about babies at all — especially brown, black or poor ones.”
The lawmaker doubled down on her criticism of Alabama’s strict new abortion law in a series of tweets in which she accused “the GOP extremists trying to invoke ‘the unborn’ to jail people for abortion” of hypocrisy for not supporting her signature policy proposal, the Green New Deal.
The Green New Deal aims to make the U.S. carbon-neutral by 2030. Some critics in conservative quarters have, however, falsely attempted to paint it as a ruse to prevent people from driving cars of flying by airplane.
“Where are you on climate change?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter. “OH right, you want to burn fossil fuels til there’s hell on Earth.”
“If they were truthful about their motives, they’d be consistent in their principles,” she added. “They’re not.”

If they were truthful about their motives, they’d be consistent in their principles. They’re not.
The GOP doesn’t care about babies at all - especially brown, black, or poor ones. If they did, they’d:— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 17, 2019
- cosponsor the Green New Deal or at LEAST have a real climate plan
- guarantee healthcare so ALL can get prenatal care
- not stand for the death+caging of babies on our border
What angers me about the GOP’s attempts to turn the United States into a far-right Christian theocracy is how dishonest they are about it.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 17, 2019
At least be forthright about your desire to subvert and dismantle our democracy into a creepy theological order led by a mad king.
Abortion bans aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 16, 2019
They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women.
From limiting birth control to banning comprehensive sex ed, US religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.
Ultimately, this is about women’s power.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 16, 2019
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.
