First, a confession: We’d thought White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor had left PBS News for NBC News, but apparently, she has a deal where she does both? There must really be a need for the “context” she always slips into her straight news stories.
It’s not news that that leaked Supreme Court decision draft on Roe v. Wade has her worried. We reported earlier that NBC News had set her up in front of an abortion clinic in Jackson, Mississippi, where women told her they felt “gutted,” “devastated,” and “like someone has died.” But listen as she reports for NBC that poor women and women of color will be hurt the most as they won’t be able to afford to fly to “abortion sanctuaries” like California and New York to have their pregnancies terminated — pregnancies “that will then turn into children.” In all honestly, that’s about the level of argument that went into the Roe v. Wade decision.
Doesn’t Planned Parenthood have a couple of bucks it could put in for airfare so those abortions could take place like they want?
Yamiche Alcindor is worried that “women who are poor, women of color…will be forced to have pregnancies that they cannot afford to terminate, and pregnancies that will then turn into children.” pic.twitter.com/oqhd1vD11y

The insane dual presupposition, used by nearly all abortion fanatics, is that (1) birth control does not exist, and that (2) sex does not have as one of its natural possibilities the creation of a child. https://t.co/m2B0lE5iKM

Wait, wait, wait, pregnancies turn into children?

News right now “sex can lead to pregnancy.”

“Turn into children?” And when does this transformation take place?
— Tressa (@Tressa1025) May 3, 2022
Yes it’s a biological fact that sex leads to pregnancies and pregnancies turn into children. Perhaps the end of the equation should be thought about before the beginning the actual equation.

“Forced to have pregnancies” – another meaningless absurd phrase

So maybe the answer is don’t get pregnant if you’re not ready to have child?

There are multiple better solutions, why think this is the only choice of action?

If women can figure out how to get to a clinic and get an abortion how come they can’t figure out how to get to a clinic and get birth control?

I would like to see proof that abortion is lifting these women up out of poverty. Basically they are saying that poor minority women will be forced to have babies, but has not having babies improved their lives?

Sounds like she’s an activist, not a reporter. But we already knew that.

Women won’t just be denied an abortion, they’ll be forced to have pregnancies.
