Kentucky’s anti-abortion rights governor Matt Bevin inadvertently made a case for abortion rights in a tweet on Wednesday night.
His tweet, lauding “freedom of choice,” is certainly ironic considering how little choice he thinks women should have over their own reproductive health care ― and women on Twitter were quick to notice the irony.
@GovMattBevin how about you let me have the choice with my family and doctor over what happens in MY UTERUS!

His tweet was also perfectly timed. On Thursday afternoon, supporters of Planned Parenthood and the ACLU protested at the state Capitol in Frankfort, with some protestors holding a large printout of Gov. Bevin’s tweet right outside his office.
Peaceful assembly and freedom of choice? Looks pretty American to us.
