(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In an attempt to defend abortion, U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) argued during a recent hearing in the United States House of Representatives that abortion is an economic issue because childbirth “conscripts” the parents to work “against their will.”
As Fox News recounts in, “AOC: Abortion is an economic issue because giving birth ‘conscripts’ parents to work ‘against their will'”:
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., argued Thursday that access to abortion should be treated as an economic issue because policies that force women to have children also force them to work so they can afford to raise those children, which she said was a form of economic conscription.
“‘Abortion is an economic issue,’ Ocasio-Cortez said in a House hearing called by Democrats to discuss restrictions on abortion.” [emphasis added]
AOC then went into a more detailed explanation of her opinion.
“‘Forcing poor and working-class people to give birth against their will, against their consent, against their ability to provide for themselves or a child, is a profound economic issue and it’s certainly a way to keep a workforce basically conscripted to large-scale employers and to employers to work more against their will, to take second and third jobs against their desire and their own autonomy,’ she said.” [emphasis added]
