Inflation is a great reason to get an abortion, Dem lawmaker says

Laurel Duggan, DCNF

Democratic California Rep. Katie Porter said inflation and rising prices reinforced the importance of abortion on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” Wednesday.

Porter said inflation and abortion were closely tied together and that, as grocery and gas prices rose, people would realize the importance of controlling their family size through abortion.

“The fact that things like inflation can happen and it can become more expensive to feed your kids and to fuel your car is exactly why people need to be able to be in charge of how many mouths they’re gonna have to feed,” Porter said.

WATCH: 

Host Lawrence O’Donnell said President Joe Biden was prioritizing inflation, and Porter explained that inflation and abortion were closely related issues.

“I think they reinforce for people just how big of a responsibility it is to take care of a family,” she said. “So I think the fact that we’re seeing this jump in expenses, that we’re seeing people having to pay more in the grocery store, pay more at the pump, pay more for housing, is a reason that people are saying ‘I need to be able to make my own decisions about when and if to start a family.’”

The Supreme Court is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade this term, according to a leaked draft opinion, which would end the Court’s ban on abortion restriction in the first six months of pregnancy and return the power to regulate and restrict abortion to the states.

If you want to “control” the size of your family or simply protect yourself from conceiving there are numerous “inexpensive” ways to do so. So what’s all this fuss about? This is not the early 1900’s! Even if you are unfortunate enough to have been raped there is still the “morning after” pill to protect you from an unwanted pregnancy. So again what is the problem? Abortion is for those who won’t take precautions 99% of the time. Abortion for “real” health reasons is a tiny number. So all this caterwauling is coming from those who refuse to take responsibility for themselves, but demand that you and the fetus must pay for their carelessness, right up until, and even after, birth in some cases.

“people would realize the importance of controlling their family size through abortion…”

The same argument could be made for disposing of the elderly and infirm—or is that the next item on the agenda.

SOME of the DEMOcrat Governors handled the “disposing of the elderly” very well last year!! Mandatory INFECTIONS at Nursing Homes took care of TENS of THOUSANDS of ELDERLY who were just sucking up space and resources!! Of course they didn’t come right out and SAY THAT, but you KNOW it’s what they were THINKING and probably DISCUSSING!

Have you noticed how many fully grown adults with the logic of a selfish ten year old get sent to congress by the devil and his democrats lately?

Democrats need to grow up and join the adult world (they won’t).

Abortion is NOT Birth Control. Are Democrats really that Stupid? There are a multitude of Birth Control methods to prevent pregnancy. Abortion is not one of them.

Oh come on! They want to get high and have some fun. Well, at least for a few minutes at least. But they dont want to get married and do the right thing if their fun times turns into reality. However it is based on extreme selfishness. Sadly the children they produce are paying the price for their fun time on the beach or whereever.

Under my SCORCHED EARTH Policy, the SPERMER will be FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE for any child or abortion! NO BENEFITS to the person who is pregnant unless the SPERMER is IDENTIFIED and PAYING HIS SHARE!! The days of the US TAXPAYER being the BABY DADDY will be over! Once this takes effect there will be Fewer SPERMERS running around creating HERDS oF babies!

I am making a compensation of more than 3800 dollars every week, that is great. Over a year back I was in an awful condition, jobless and ledger with just couple of bucks. Because of one of my companions who demonstrated to me a way where I could accumulate myself and making normal of 50-60 dollars for each hour… Amazing thing about it was that necessity for the activity is essential composing and solid internet…If you figure this could be for you at that point discover more here.
