Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…

They don’t get any more clueless than this former bartender.

She’s been making boneheaded statements and proposals since the day she got “inaugurated” into office (her words, not ours), and she doesn’t show signs of stopping. Even when proven wrong, she just doesn’t know when to keep her mouth shut. Which is fine by conservatives…

The more she talks, the more ridiculous she, and her party as a whole, end up looking.

But…

That doesn’t take away from the fact that there are some impressionable young people that DO take her seriously – and that’s dangerous when she obviously doesn’t know fact from fiction.

This mouth-breather recently put her ignorance on display when she tweeted, “Psst! Birth control should be over-the-counter, pass it on.”

Ok…

So she believes that something that could mess with your hormones and send your system into shock SHOULDN’T be prescribed by a doctor.

Yeah, that sounds safe, right?

Well, regardless of AOC’s disregard for the safety of women everywhere, there’s something else she’s implied in her nonsensical ramblings…

She believes that the reason that birth control pills aren’t available over the counter is due to the evil Republicans trying to control a woman’s body.

That the conservatives are still adhering to the Catholic church’s doctrine that birth control is a sin…

Well, AOC, sorry to burst your bubble – but that really isn’t the case.

In fact, it couldn’t be further from the truth, as the REAL culprits behind the fact that birth control isn’t more widely available – are the Democrats themselves.

The Truth About OTC Contraception

More conservatives these days SUPPORT cheap and readily-available contraception these days for a simple reason…

It lowers the amount of unwanted pregnancies and therefore would have an impact on abortion rates.

In fact, Republican lawmakers tried to put this concession (OTC birth control, but with medical supervision) into the Obamacare legislation, but were met with resistance from the Left due to its “pro-life” stance on it. To conservatives, it was a morality-based decision and therefore must have been some underhanded play to control women’s bodies.

But to conservatives, it was the kind of compromise that SHOLD have worked for BOTH sides – but it wasn’t good enough for the Left…

Probably because making the pill widely available wouldn’t burden religious employers who might object to subsidizing contraception.

So, in a political play designed to get back at these conscience-minded businesses, the Left said “no dice” and rallied against the idea as some kind of assault on women’s rights.

Dems Holding Contraception Hostage!

So, the fault lies with the Left on this one…

Not the Right.

What the Left doesn’t understand is that conservatives REALLY don’t want there to be unwanted pregnancies any more than the Left does…

However, where many of the more religiously-leaning conservatives have changed their stance on contraception in a preemptive strike to reduce cases of abortions, the left won’t budge on making that concession in order to FORCE a few business owners to comply with the government demands on coverage.

In their misguided quest to make these people pay, they’ve overlooked the consequence of their social crusade – and that’s MORE unwanted pregnancies resulting in more abortions.

Conservatives? For the most part, we’re FOR cheap and readily available contraception because we KNOW it’s better than the alternative.

Apparently AOC doesn’t understand this…

She doesn’t realize it’s her OWN party holding the pill hostage.

But that shouldn’t surprise you…

This is the same woman that wants to do away with air travel and force Americans to stop eating beef.

Man, if somebody would just do something about all those damned farting cows…
