We always have to brace ourselves whenever we see someone post a video of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez because we know we’re in for a hot take. We’re not sure if this is new (it likely is, considering she’s discussing restrictions on abortion), but AOC says that abortion is closely tied to the class struggle. Here, we thought companies were offering to pay for employees’ abortions so they could be back on the job the next day rather than take six weeks or more of paid maternity leave — isn’t that what a greedy capitalist would do? But instead, AOC thinks that forcing poor women to give birth makes them “conscripted” to work a second or third job against their will.

Absurd argument when corporations are literally funding abortion travel instead of prenatal care and family leave.

She is so close to getting it right except it’s the exact opposite https://t.co/Eui2bC5o0n

AOC might want to ask why corporations pay for abortions but not for adoption

No, she doesn’t want to ask, because she doesn’t want to hear the answer.

The same corporations that immediately jumped to cover abortions for the “women affected” after Dobbs?
And, following her logic, why would companies want women going on maternity leave if their interest is the workforce numbers? pic.twitter.com/RDy1B0lCU8

I am pro life. When I debate my liberal friends on this topic ALL of them end up saying “It will be cheaper for the country to not have to pay for children nobody wants.”

And that’s the heart of it — if it’s not wanted, it’s not a baby but a clump of cells. That’s why they sent out talking points to the pro-abortion crowd telling them to use “unexpected pregnancies” instead of “unwanted pregnancies.”
Didn’t basically every corporation come out on social media and say they will pay for their employees to get abortions out of state if their state restricts them?

Wow. She’s just voicing what the Left has always believed. “There are simply too many useless eaters and we need to thin the heard of the unwashed masses”. How stunning and brave of her to say the quiet part out loud. 🤔

It’s crazy but there are ways to prevent pregnancy even with no money. Maybe AOC should talk to her constituents about how babies are made.
