HOW? AOC Just Told Everyone Planned Parenthood SAVES LIVES?

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to turn heads, but definitely not in a good way. Ironically, this radical politician from New York championed Planned Parenthood as a heroic life-saving organization even though they are the nation’s largest abortion provider. What? I think this merits it again. What? Seriously? Has this woman lost her mind?

The Details

AOC made her views known during a virtual House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing entitled, “Birthing While Black: Examining America’s Black Maternal Health Crisis”. She defended the organization even though they perform hundreds of thousands of abortions every year. Ocasio-Cortez first started by taking some potshots at her conservative rivals:

“I really do not want to hear about anyone at all on this committee or outside of this committee talking about valuing life when they continue to uphold the death penalty, when they continue to support policies that will largely incarcerate and lead to larger deaths of black men, uphold a completely unjust medical system that simply exists for profit and allows people to die simply because they can’t afford to live,” she said. “If we are going to talk about Planned Parenthood,” she continued, “We have to talk about all of the lives they save and all of the excellent pre-natal care that they provide.”

Huh?

Of course, Ocasio-Cortez did her best to continue to be a Planned Parenthood mouthpiece during the conversation, saying that she herself was a “Planned Parenthood Baby”, meaning that her mother had used the organization’s pre-natal services before she was born. However, instead of mindless emotional appeals from people who are about as liberal as can be and would be fit in just fine in socialist Russia, let’s look at some facts.

In the scope of just one year, Planned Parenthood performed over 350,000 abortions. During that same time span, they only had about 8,700 instances of pre-natal care. Yes, it is true that they give their patients access to pap smears, contraceptive counseling, and cancer screenings, but they also use that as propaganda to say that only 3% of their services are for those abortions.

And AOC wants to talk about how some of those other social issues will “disproportionately affect black people”? Well, how about abortion? Historically, black people are about five times more likely to get an abortion even though they make up only about 14% of the child-bearing population.

Just more liberal propaganda from the ex-bartender. Egad.

What do you think about these “facts”? Your comments would be appreciated.
