AOC: Opposing Abortion Means Forcing the Poor to Give Birth

September 29, 2022

In a House hearing on Thursday called by Democrats to discuss restrictions on abortion, radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), D-N.Y., argued that access to abortion should be treated as an economic issue because policies that force women to have children also force them to work so they can afford to raise those children, which she said was a form of economic conscription.

“Abortion is an economic issue,” AOC claimed. “Forcing poor and working-class people to give birth against their will, against their consent, against their ability to provide for themselves or a child, is a profound economic issue and it’s certainly a way to keep a workforce basically conscripted to large-scale employers and to employers to work more against their will, to take second and third jobs against their desire and their own autonomy.”

This ludicrous, Marxist-inspired outburst was in response to comments from Rep. Jake LaTurner, R-Kan., who criticized Democrats for focusing on abortion instead of economic issues like inflation and energy policy. AOC said it’s “disappointing” to hear that point of view from someone who has “never had to contend” with bearing a child (because men aren’t allowed to have opinions about abortion, don’t ya know), and said abortion is a “profound and central economic and class issue.”

The leftist argument that opposing abortion means forcing women to give birth against their will is a grotesque and inane lie, but radicals like Ocasio-Cortez will do and say anything in defense of their sacrament of infanticide.
