Mike Pence proudly declared he was pro-life during Wednesday night's debate, and it seems people have a lot to say about it.

More specifically, his comments didn't go down well with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez...

AOC took to Twitter to swiftly shut Pence down - pushing back his claims.

Now, the Vice Presidential Debate was an explosive evening, to say the least.

On Wednesday night, Kamala Harris went head-to-head with Trump’s Vice-president, Mike Pence, in the year's first and only vice presidential debate.

The pair debated twelve feet apart, with Plexiglass shields separating them...

A health and safety precaution requested by the Biden-Harris campaign, the Associated Press reported.

However, concerns regarding the distance between the podiums were still rife throughout the night.

Many were worried about Pence's exposure to the virus, considering the President was infected just a few days ago.

And many even believed that thanks to the virus, the whole debate should have been virtual...

As should all future debates planned for this year.

Despite these concerns, however, the debate went ahead.

Susan Page, the Washington bureau chief of USA Today, moderated the event, which was dominated heavily by the coronavirus crisis, the very thing that hospitalized the President just days ago.

The virus became the main talking point of the event.

In the ninety-minute live debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Harris accused Pence and the president of deliberately misleading Americans about the lethality of coronavirus. "They knew, and they covered it up."

However, Pence shot back by accusing the Biden-Harris campaign of copying the White House's pandemic strategy...

Referring to a blunder that ended Biden's 1987 run for the presidency when he plagiarized a speech.

Page then quizzed Harris on whether she would be taking any government-approved vaccine in the run-up to the election...

In which Harris responded by stating firmly that she "would not take a jab touted by Mr. Trump without the say-so of medical professionals."

Of course, this didn't sit well with Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force.

He retorted: "The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine if the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration I think is unconscionable."

Putting the pandemic to one side, a whole array of other topics were brushed upon throughout the evening...

Racism in America being one of them. Harris slammed Trump's track record with racism, and reminded viewers that "we are talking about an election in twenty-seven-days where last week, the President of the United States, in front of seventy million Americans, refused to condemn white supremacists."

However, Pence doesn't think our country has any racism issues.

When discussing the highly-publicized murder of Breonna Taylor, Pence stated that he "trusts our justice system," and blamed the grand jury for the injustice surrounding the case.

And, of course, there were some more lighthearted moments, too.

At one part of the debate, Pence had a fly on his head for around 5 minutes, a hilarious blunder that has spawned thousands of internet memes.

And, of course...

There were Harris' golden moments.

Firstly, viewers relished when the Californian senate politely - but firmly - put Pence back in his place.

"Mr. Vice President, I'm talking," she shot at Pence as he attempted to speak over her, in a somewhat more civilized reaction to Biden's "shut up, man."

And, in between the policy talk, many viewers had one big takeaway:

Harris' facial reactions when Pence repeatedly interrupted her were nothing short of iconic.

Here's a snippet of her in action.

The glare, the hair tuck... Everything about this is perfect.

She pulled many faces throughout the evening...

And every one of them was as iconically scathing as the last.

Another of the topics that came up during the debate was women's reproductive rights.

And Pence made his stance on the matter crystal clear.

Pence declared he was proud of being a "pro-life" candidate.

"I couldn't be more proud to serve as vice president to a president who stands without apology for the sanctity of human life. I'm pro-life. I don't apologize for it."

But it seems he wasn't too keen on talking about abortion...

And when asked a direct question about what he'd want his home state of Indiana to do if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, seemingly attempted to dodge the question.

Of course, this is a hugely polarizing issue.

And so, following his comments, nothing short of a social media firestorm ensued.

And no other than AOC spoke out.

She took to Twitter to push back against the idea that Pence is truly "pro-life."

It's safe to say...

She really didn't hold back.

Here's what she had to say:
