Her lying makes Proctor look like an even bigger liar than the court already believes he is. Another example of how Elizabeth is responsible for the death of John Proctor is that Elizabeth knew about how Abigail is the one accusing people of witchcraft and how she is making false accusations yet Elizabeth did nothing to stop her. The whole time Elizabeth and John both knew that the accusations that Abigail was making was false, yet they continue to let it happen until Elizabeth gets accused. They do not care about anyone else getting thrown in jail or killed unless it is one of them. They are so selfish and that is proved whenever Proctor did not speak up until Elizabeth and a few of his friends wives are accused and thrown into jail.

Abby does not want people thinking ill of her nor does she want to get in trouble so the obvious answer to her is to distract everyone and have them look away from her. While they are all focusing on a “lesser’ person they begin to forget about what she is being accused of. While blaming innocent people, she, herself, is being freed. Getting the help of others to be included in lies help fuel the doubt in others because there is an alibi.
