Fox has been fearmongering over abortion ever since Trump's shutdown fail. It's their go-to booster shot against to keep their viewers furious at Democrats.
February 4, 2019

On Monday's Fox and Friends, Democrat Richard Fowler flattened the hot air abortion balloon inflated by Lisa Boothe and Pete Hegseth.

Since the Trump shutdown and its subsequent bad-for-Trump poll numbers, Fox has been airing a constant cycle of

The Left will impeach Trump for no reason

and there's a caravan crossing from Mexico that will kill you.

and finally, Democrats want "infanticide"

all day long.

The "infanticide" lie was highlighted on Monday by Pete Hegseth, who clutched his pearls and wondered aloud "why no one on the left is concerned about the Virginia law." The right has been on high disinformation campaign as Virginia voted to reduce the number of doctors required to approve a late-term abortion (due to fetal death or severe abnormality) from three doctors to one. The right wing noise machine has ramped up the lies to say this is a pro-baby killing after birth bill. It's not.

Richard Fowler made it very simple: No one on the Left is upset because they actually read the law
and know that it doesn't allow that."

Watch for more of this insanity as bad-for-Trump news continues. Anything to distract the wingnut base.
