here's the full context of DeSantis's lie about blue states having "post-birth abortions" for those curious about how much pushback was offered pic.twitter.com/7zRLJhq0Hq— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 18, 2023
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) falsely claimed on CNN that Blue States have “post-birth abortions” and made the false assertion that the U.S. Military pays female soldiers to have abortions, when in reality the military does not pay an incentive to have an abortion.
The military pays for the actual abortion, just as it pays for any medical care. DeSantis signed a six-week abortion ban for Florida back in April, noted NPR, even though many women may not even know they are pregnant at six weeks.
