MSNBC’s host of The 11th Hour Stephanie Ruhle declared on Tuesday that Roe v. Wade’s demise has already greatly harmed women throughout the country and to make matters worse, states passing pro-life laws have made it harder to vote.

Trying to prove her accusation, Ruhle claimed that, “Roe v. Wade being overturned has disrupted health care across this nation. The New York Times reporting on a story of a Wisconsin woman who was turned away from a hospital while she was experiencing a miscarriage. By the time that she found a doctor who gave her the appropriate medications, the woman had been bleeding intermittently for days. Putting her at increased risk of hemorrhage or infection. Not to mention the emotional distress.”

Next, she hyped “In Washington, 17 House Democrats were arrested today at an abortion rights rally outside of the Supreme Court this afternoon.”

After not mentioning that demonstration unintentionally turned into comedy hour with representatives pretending to be handcuffed, then raising their firsts in the air, before returning to pretending to be handcuffed, Ruhle welcomed her guest, acting national political director for the ACLU, Kary Moss.

Later in the interview, Ruhle asked Moss, “Many of these states that are restricting abortion, also coincidentally have made it harder and harder to vote. Does this firewall strategy account for that?”

After Moss predictably said that it does, Ruhle switched topics back to the story she led off the segment with, “People are being denied care. I just said it before, for miscarriages, for ectopic pregnancies, because of these laws. They’re not going to the hospitals seeking abortions, do these patients have any recourse?”

Ruhle, and other journalists who spread this sort of disinformation, may want to be careful what they wish for when it comes to asking for recourse. In Wisconsin, the definition of an abortion does not include procedures that intend “to remove a dead fetus.”

Of course, Moss didn’t care about that and was more than happy to help Ruhle fear-monger, “You know, the human devastation is really unbelievable and we are already seeing it in this New York Times story you just featured. We’re seeing chaos, we’re seeing unpredictability, we’re seeing needless harm to the most vulnerable. We–we– know that marginalized women in particular are going to be most affected. Black women are two times more likely to die in childbirth. So, these bans are already having a chaotic impact.”

If there is confusion about new pro-life laws, the responsibility lies first and foremost with agenda-pushing journalists like Stephanie Ruhle.
