Juliana responded to the congressman’s words in a Twitter post.

Julian wrote: “It occurred to me that Matt Gatz – an alleged pedophile – said that there are always women who are ‘penetration… 5’2 350lbs’ who ‘nobody wants to get pregnant’ and who rally for abortion. they do. “I’m actually 5’11. 6’4 in heels. I wear them so little men like you remember your place.”

Gutz responded by sharing a photo of Juliana and sharing a photo of her nerves.

Juliana said she started raising money to fund abortions in response to the public attack.
