Congresswoman Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving for both the Right and conservative content writers. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t give us something to discuss.
It is because of that that I have challenged myself not to write about her for a long time…but that self-imposed embargo is ending here.
The millennial congresswoman uttered something so devoid of logic and morality that I could no longer stay silent.
On Thursday, AOC told the House Oversight and Reform Committee that Planned Parenthood saves lives while failing to mention all the innocent unborn babies they kill.
Yes, that is a thing that a sitting congresswoman actually said.
AOC told the committee that “If we want to talk about Planned Parenthood, let’s talk about how many lives Planned Parenthood has saved and how many babies have been born because of the prenatal care provided by Planned Parenthood.”
For the record, she isn’t even factually correct—which should come as no surprise to anyone that has followed her career.
The Blaze reported that “according to Planned Parenthood’s 2019-2020, the health care provider performed 354,871 abortions in the span of just one year. During the same period of time, Planned Parenthood offered only 8,626 prenatal services.”
Oh, but she wasn’t done.
“I don’t want to hear a single person on this committee or outside of this committee talk about valuing life when they continue to uphold the death penalty, when they continue to support policies that disproportionately incarcerate and lead to the deaths of black men and people throughout this country and uphold an absolutely unjust medical system that exists for profit that allows people to die because they can’t afford to live.”
Again, facts are eluding AOC.
The Blaze also reported that “In 2008, the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-choice research organization, reported that historically in the U.S., ‘the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women.’ That is, despite only accounting for 14% of the childbearing population, black women obtained 36% of reported abortions, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
As they say, facts are stubborn things.
AOC and the Democrats are, without a doubt, the party of abortion.
The Biden administration has supported the U.S. returning to the Mexico City policy which sends American tax dollars to foreign countries that perform abortions.
It is a terrible stain on our country that our tax dollars are being used to fund the killing of innocent human life.
Planned Parenthood is nothing more than an abortion mill that kills far more babies than they save.
Regardless of one’s position on abortion, it is asinine that those who are pro-life have to fund abortion with their taxpayer money.
Funding Planned Parenthood is state-sponsored slaughtering of human life, and that isn’t right.
AOC and her fellow Democrats have the gall to claim that, if you don’t support funding Planned Parenthood, you don’t care about women’s health…which is absurd.
Why do tax dollars have to be sent to Planned Parenthood to help administer health care to women? Is there no other community health centers in existence that cater to women?
Of course there are, but Planned Parenthood supports Democrats, and Democrats support Planned Parenthood.
So, if AOC is seriously concerned with pre-natal care, she should favor funding organizations that actually are in business strictly to provide prenatal care and essential health services to women.
But of course, that is not really her number one concern.
It is just a phony argument meant to distract from her morally depraved support of Planned Parenthood.
History should judge her and the Democrats harshly for their support of the wicked organization.
