Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) decided to defend the impending overturning of Roe v Wade by the Supreme Court by attacking pro-choice women, and it didn’t go well at all.

A leaked draft majority opinion by Justice Samuel Alito drew mass outrage on Monday because it appears five of the high court’s conservatives are preparing to overturn the landmark 1973 ruling based on their own personal beliefs and the arcane opinion of an English barrister who lived 350 years ago long before the United States or the Constitution ever existed.

And seeing as how the original Roe v Wade ruling had a 7-2 majority, a 5-4 majority overturning it is egregious and undermines precedent and the rule of law. In addition, millions of women across the country will lose their bodily autonomy and privacy.

In response to the outrage, however, Gaetz insulted pro-choice women on Twitter.

This is a good time to remind everyone that Matt Gaetz is under federal investigation for trafficking an underage girl across state lines so he could have sex with her.

Twitter users, especially women, were not amused by his attack and promptly fired back.

Gaetz should be indicted long before he stands for re-election in November in many Americans’ view, but on the off-chance he isn’t, he has provided an insult that women will remember when they cast their votes.
