Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), on her Twitter page early Wednesday morning, tweeted, “‘6 weeks pregnant’ = 2 weeks late on your period.”

“‘6 weeks pregnant’ = 2 weeks late on your period,” wrote Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on her Twitter page. “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 later period + not be pregnant. So this is a backdoor ban.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s comments came in reference to a CBS News tweet citing a piece on the“fetal heartbeat bill” signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp that would, according to CBS News, “prohibit abortion after a heartbeat is detected in an embryo.” CBS News notes later in the piece that “Abortion rights advocates have called the bill an effective ban on abortion in the state.”

“Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a sign of life and those children should receive the full protection of the law,” reported Fox News.

In a subsequent early morning tweet, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez wrote the following on her Twitter page:

“For context, this kicks in within days of a typical at-home test working.

“If you were sexually assaulted (stress delays cycle), took a morning-after pill (throws off cycle), or have an irregular cycle, you‘d have no idea.

“There are a TON of ways this law ignores basic biology.”
