Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest gaffe dealt a severe blow to the Democrats’ chances in the midterm election.
The New York congresswoman has a bad habit of not thinking before she acts.
And this humiliating video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will leave Democrats sweating with panic.
Democrats hoped to weaponize the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade to fire up their base and keep suburban swing voters from defecting to the GOP.
Republicans made inroads in the suburbs over critical race theory, school lockdowns and mask mandates for children.
Democrats believed they could win these key voters back by turning the midterms into a referendum on the issue of abortion on demand.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw a monkey wrench into those plans.
That’s because the fatal flaw in the Democrats’ theory of the case on abortion is that the left’s position of abortion on demand up until the moment of birth and with no limits is extremely unpopular.
Polls show just 25 percent of the American people support ending the lives of unborn babies at will.
By contrast, Fox News polling found 54 percent of Americans support bans on abortion after 15 weeks and 50 percent support banning abortion after six weeks.
The more Democrats call attention to their fringe position on the issue of abortion the worse the issue plays for liberals.
That’s exactly what Ocasio-Cortez did in a video posted to her social media that immediately went viral.
The New York congresswoman ranted that it was an archaic religious belief that caused people to believe an unborn baby in the womb is actually a human life.
For people who say ‘oh, but you’re harming a life, I believe this is life’, well some religions don’t. So how about that?
Our Jewish brothers and sisters, they are able to have an abortion according to their faith.
There are so many faiths that do not have this same definition of life as fundamentalist Christians. And so what about their rights? What about their rights to exercise their faith?
It’s ridiculous and it is theocratic. It’s authoritarian. It is wrong.

Believing life begins at conception is not an article of Christian faith.
It is actual science.
For a party that claims to “follow the science” and “f#cking loves science” Democrats ignore the fundamental scientific truth that life begins at conception.
The American College of Pediatricians wrote:
The predominance of human biological research confirms that human life begins at conception—fertilization. At fertilization, the human being emerges as a whole, genetically distinct, individuated zygotic living human organism, a member of the species Homo sapiens, needing only the proper environment in order to grow and develop. The difference between the individual in its adult stage and in its zygotic stage is one of form, not nature. This statement focuses on the scientific evidence of when an individual human life begins.
Advancements in ultrasound technology allow prospective mothers and fathers to see that the unborn baby in the womb is indeed a human life.
And the more liberals like Ocasio-Cortez call attention to the fact that they reject this fundamental scientific truth the bigger the political price Democrats will play.
