Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar told her supporters that there should be absolutely no reason for someone to take the life of another individual.
In a tweet about a recent death penalty case, Omar said: “No one should take the life of another.”
“That includes the government,” she added, referencing Nathaniel Woods state-sanctioned execution in Alabama.
No one should take the life of another.
That includes the government. https://t.co/sPxWl0QPc5

If the congresswoman did believe “no one should take the life of another” then she ought to be vehemently opposed to abortion—the literal killing of an individual—right?
But she does support abortion. Even up to the moment of its natural birth. She has also refused to back a bill which would require doctors to care for a child after it is birthed, should it survive an abortion attempt.
Several people online criticized the congresswoman’s double standard:

— SonshineIAm (@YHWHisGod4ever) March 7, 2020
Just think of it as a really late-term abortion.

I’ll agree that the death penalty should be abolished when you and your squad agree that abortion should be abolished
