FLORIDA (FLV) – A New Jersey Congressman posted a fake headline dated in 2025 that falsely claimed the DeSantis Administration imprisoned a woman under a national abortion ban, leading readers on social media to believe the lie.

Democrat U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell posted a fake New York Times headline titled “DeSantis Administration Imprisons First Women” with the following sentence saying “McConnell legislation mandates life sentences in national abortion ban.” The picture is dated Jan. 21 of 2025, which the Democrat intended as a pretend foreshadowing event.

However, the picture led many to believe that the picture of a woman being arrested on her knees by the NYPD for her involvement with abortions was real. The picture is actually of a Black Lives Matter protester arrested outside the Met Gala in New York in 2021.

“How do we help her?” and “Ron DeSantis you are despicable” were some of the responses on social media to the picture. In other responses, people did not understand it was fake and questioned why NYPD was arresting people in Florida.

Florida’s 15-week abortion ban is being challenged in court. According to state law, “any person who willfully performs, or actively participates in, a termination of pregnancy” would face a third degree felony.

DeSantis has centered his focus on the 15-week abortion banning winning in court. After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, the governor said the state “will work to expand pro-life protections.”

“Florida will continue to defend its recently-enacted pro-life reforms against state court challenges, will work to expand pro-life protections, and will stand for life by promoting adoption, foster care and child welfare,” DeSantis said.
