Democrat Rep. Katie Porter of California offered an astounding argument for her pro-abortion views when she said that more abortions would ease the strain of inflation.
Porter made the comments while appearing on “The Last Word” on MSNBC Thursday.
“President Biden has said that inflation is the number one priority for the Biden White House to try to get under control right now,” said host Lawrence O’Donnell.
“As you are out there in California talking to constituents during this reelection year for congress, how does inflation compare to this newly important, in the sense of the Supreme Court decision pending, abortion issue? How do those two issues compare?” he asked.
“Well, I don’t think they compare, I think they actually reinforce each other,” responded Porter.
“So, the fact that 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,” she claimed.
“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 people are saying I need to be able to make my own decisions about when and if to start a family,” she continued.
“So I don’t think we’re going to see them,” Porter concluded, “I don’t think it’s like about comparing them or contrasting them, I think they reinforce for people just how big of a responsibility it is to take care of a family.”
Porter also claimed in the interview that conservatives were going to ban all contraceptives after banning abortion, a widely spread conspiracy theory among Democrats.
