Recently, right-wing commentator and former Miss World America Kathy Zhu (@PoliticalKathy) burned down social media with her controversial statements about the state of modern conservatism in politics.

Zhu tweeted, “You don’t have to be traditional to believe in freedom and liberty. You can go to EDM concerts, you can smoke weed, you can own 6 cats, you can have colored hair, you can have piercings/tattoos, you can be vegan, you can care about the environment. It’s cool to be a conservative.”

The bill would only pull a woman into an investigation if there was suspicion someone else had performed an abortion on her. This bit of misinformation contributes to media fear mongering, and somewhat humorously, some Twitter users calling for a “Sex Strike.”
