In an interview Wednesday on CNN’s OutFront, Michigan’s tyrannical Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) responded to a question about whether abortion will overtake issues like inflation that have hurt Democrats in the minds of voters, by declaring that when “you take away someone’s ability to make their healthcare decision,” it “compounds the pain that families are going to feel.”
Whitmer stated, “The most important economic decision a woman makes in her lifetime is when and whether to have a child, and this court decision threatens to rip that away from every woman in the country.”
Fact check: no one is “ripping away” anyone’s choice of when and whether to have a child, certainly not from “every woman in the country.” Every word of that fear-mongering statement is completely divorced from reality, but that’s how Democrats roll.
Asked if abortion will overtake other issues the Democrat party is facing, Whitmer responded, “Inflation’s taken a toll, the cost of gas, the cost of groceries. It’s tough. But I also know that, you take away someone’s ability to make their healthcare decision, that only compounds the pain that families are going to feel.”
Reality check: abortion is not “health care,” and no one is taking away a woman’s choice to get one. The Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v Wade only ruled that abortion is not a constitutional right, and that it’s a states’ issue. This does not even remotely do or mean what Democrats like Whitmer hyperbolically complain that it does.
