Squad member Cori Bush unwittingly makes pro-life argument in recalling own abortion experience

Pro-abortion activist Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) described her experience with abortion as a 19-year-old college student who said doctors were “absolutely ignoring” her and went ahead with the procedure to dispose of the baby in her womb despite her having a change of heart at the last minute.

Apparently not bothered by the fact that the “choice” she advocates so fervently for was taken away, the now 46-year-old Black Lives Matter proponent claimed the only reason her pleas fell on deaf ears was because of racism.

“No, I’m not ready,” she recalled telling the medical professionals in the interview that aired Wednesday on PBS.

“I was thinking back to the first abortion. ‘Okay. You’ve done this before. You know the rooms, you know what it looks like, you know what it feels like… you know you may experience even some harm, or some racism in this space,” Bush said.

“I thought I was ready, and I went in, and I went through all the steps, because… it’s almost like an assembly line. You know, you go from room to room,” she continued.

“And I got into the last room. I was helped up onto the table by the nurse. And I laid there and started to think, well, one, I didn’t tell the father that that was about to happen…and I just felt like I needed more time,” she explained.

“So I said, ‘No, you know what, I’m not ready.’ And the nurse just, you know, wouldn’t listen to me,” Bush said in the interview. “And I said, ‘No, I’m not ready.’ And as I’m saying ‘No,’ they continued to pull the instruments and, you know, and get everything ready.”

“They absolutely ignored me,” she said. “Even to the point of, you know, like, ‘Calm down.’ As if I was the problem.”

“And, so I remember laying there looking to see if there was someone else in the room that would listen to me,” she said, apparently unable to walk out before the procedure started.

“During this time, they put the instrument inside me and started the instrument,” Bush said. “And I’m saying, ‘No,’ but it was too late, because you couldn’t stop once it started.”

Then she dropped the bombshell on her theory behind why the doctors would not pay attention to her in the medical facility.

“The same as the other times I haven’t been listened to by a provider…or medical staff. I was a young, black woman,” she claimed. “Multiple times, I felt like it was ‘Oh well, we know better. You don’t know what you need. You don’t understand. We know better.”

Social media users came to her rescue with other – much more plausible – reasons her abortion experience went awry.
