Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a propensity for making controversial statements.
It’s a habit she cannot break.
And what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just said about parents will make you go berserk.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
In the latest attack against the family Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said if women cannot have abortions, then parents are “conscripted” to work “against their will.”
The far-left congresswoman made the claim that abortion was an economic issue at a House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday.
“Abortion is an economic issue,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “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 employers to work more against their will, to take second, third jobs against their desire and their own autonomy.
“And so the idea that abortion and access to abortion is somehow not a profound and central economic and class issue and class struggle is certainly something that a person who has never had to contend with the ability to carry a child — it belies that perspective and it’s disappointing to see,” she continued.
Ocasio-Cortez is portraying parenthood as bondage which abortion is needed to escape and the idea that women work longer hours after having children is completely untrue.
Mothers across every single racial and ethnic group in America work fewer paid hours than childless women but Ocasio-Cortez wants to vilify kids as an undue burden that should be terminated before they are even born.
This isn’t a new attack as Democrats have been actively trying to disrupt the nuclear family structure for years.
Left-wing activist group Black Lives Matter even had it on their “What We Believe” page.
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable,” the now-archived page read.
Right-wing politician Giorgia Meloni who is poised to become Italy’s first female prime minister explained why the left hates the family in a now-viral speech.
“Why is the family an enemy? Why is the family so frightening?” Meloni asked.
“Because it defines us. Because it is our identity. Because everything that defines us is now an enemy for those who would like us to no longer have an identity and to simply be perfect consumer slaves. And so they attack national identity, they attack religious identity, they attack gender identity, they attack family identity,” she answered.
