COMMENTARY: Matt Gaetz Has A Descriptor Of The Pro-Choice Crowd, & Yes, It’s Both Misogynistic & Ironic

Who is pro-choice? To one degree or another, most Americans believe that a pregnant person should have the choice of whether to carry the pregnancy to term. They differ, to great extents, though, on how much choice.

The most commonly-accepted standard has been viability outside the womb, although medical technology has shifted where that line lies. Some believe that the right to an abortion should be essentially unlimited, while others are only in favor in certain cases, like rape or incest, or if the fetus is not compatible with life, or is endangering the life of the pregnant person.

According to the Washington Post, a poll just last week demonstrated that only about 28% of Americans think the Roe v. Wade precedent recognizing abortion as a matter of medical privacy should be overturned, with another 18% holding no opinion.

That leaves more than half the country — by definition, people of a variety of genders, races, marital statuses, religions, and so forth — who do not think the court should overrule Roe v. Wade.

Not according to Matt Gaetz, though. He tweeted to suggest that they’re “overeducated and underloved” women, who are reliant on their cats for affection and can’t seem to get a date.

Matt Gaetz, however, may not be the best arbiter of exactly how educated or loved a woman should be — after all, as the Miami New Times lays out, he’s accused of having a sexual relationship with an underage girl, and made a series of Venmo payments to Joel Greenberg, who has since pled guilty to sex trafficking a minor. Gaetz’ Venmo payment included a memo line asking Greenberg to “hit up” a young woman.
