In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey fired off a series of tweets praising the decision, saying that the 1973 landmark decision that says the U.S. Constitution generally protects a woman’s right to have an abortion was a “poorly-reasoned ruling that had no Constitutional basis.”
“The Supreme Court has made the right decision by finally overturning it and giving governing power back to the people and the states,” Ducey wrote.
“I am proud that Arizona has been ranked the most pro-life state in the country. Here, we will continue to cherish life and protect it in every way possible,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
But things soon got awkward when a Twitter user quote-tweeted Ducey’s post, claiming his son made her take a pregnancy-blocking drug after the two allegedly had a tryst.
“Your son made me take plan b after we hooked up but carry on,” a Twitter user identifying herself as “neen” wrote.
Levonorgestrel morning-after pills, like Plan B, are the most well-known emergency contraceptives. According to chief medical officer Dr. Meera Shah of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic in New York, drugs like Plan B “won’t have an impact on an existing pregnancy, they prevent a pregnancy from occurring.”
While neen’s true identity is not known and the story about her and Ducey’s son are not confirmed (DeadState reached out to her for comment), her tweet nonetheless went viral, garnering over 200,000 likes and retweets as of this writing. In another tweet, neen claimed that Ducey’s son blocked her on Twitter.
People in the comment thread beneath her initial tweet were eating the whole thing up.
Losing my mind at the ratio Neen hahahahaha

Pro-life doesn’t apply to politicians. Just like masks didn’t.

In March, Ducey signed a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The measure stated that physicians can provide abortions after 15 weeks only in cases of medical emergency. The law provides no exceptions for rape or incest.
