Benjamin Watson responds to socialist Democrats’ complaining
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s complaint about the anti-abortion bill passed on Tuesday didn’t go unnoticed by former Super Bowl champion Benjamin Watson.
The outspoken father of seven is a notable advocate of the pro-life movement.
Watson, on Wednesday, responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s whining on the new “fetal heartbeat bill,” giving her a simple biology lesson.
Ocasio-Cortez slammed the bill on Twitter.
“‘6 weeks pregnant’ = 2 weeks late on your period.”
“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.”
But AOC’s rant was quickly silenced by Watson, who offered some facts.
“Actually his or her heart is beating 100 to 160 times a minute at six weeks,” he responded in a tweet.
“Simple biology that has nothing to do with the sex of the individual writing the legislation.”
Watson then joined in uncommonly polite debate with his former teammate on the New Orleans Saints, Jonathan Vilma.
The two bumped heads on the subject of abortion but did so graciously in disagreement.
“As you all know Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp said as he was signing the bill. “We protect the innocent. We champion the vulnerable. We stand up and speak for those who are unable to speak for themselves.” https://t.co/fMBaxNSHby

The solution for unwanted children is to WANT them.
The solution for unloved children is to LOVE them.
The solution for a future of poor education, poverty and incarceration is EDUCATIONAL INVESTMENT, JOBS, and DECARCERATION.
Killing innocent life will NEVER be the solution. https://t.co/0p1epwWged

I respect your opinion 100.
Before I respond, will you tell me what you mean by her making decisions about “her body”?
Are you referring to her body or the baby or both?

They then agreed to discuss offline.
“Indeed, The perspective of pregnant women is important,” he said.
“Their humanity demands it. That does not alter the facts of biology though. Disconnect occurs when one is unwilling to present truth because of feelings for or against OR when one alters truth for fear it will not be received.”
Other Democrats weighing on the new “fetal heartbeat bill” was 2020 hopeful Sen.Cory Booker, who called it an assault on women before claiming “abortion is healthcare.”
The “heartbeat bill” was signed into law Tuesday by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia, which will ban abortions for babies after six weeks’ gestation.
But Booker declared his support for abortion in Tweet on Wednesday.
“Georgia’s ‘fetal heartbeat’ law is an all-out-attack on women that will strip them of rights before many even know they are pregnant.”
