Remember HR7, that awful bill that would restrict federal insurance coverage of abortion and add sundry fun new restrictions on abortion coverage in DC and nationwide? Well, nobody knew this before, but it turns out it is also a job growth bill! Let Congressman Bob Goodlatte, creative outside-the-box thinker and Republican representative for Virginia’s 5th Congressional District, explain it to you:
In addition I would suggest that it is very much the case that those of us in the majority support this legislation because it’s the morally right thing to do, but it also is very very true that having a growing population and having new children brought into the world is not harmful to job creation it very much promotes job creation for all the care and services and so on that need to be provided by a lot of people that need to raise children, so…
Let’s go through this here elected official’s path of reasoning, so we are all clear:
Restrict low-income folks’ access to abortion -> Those already struggling to make ends meet forced to have children they did not want (rich continue getting safe abortions tho FYI) -> JOBS!
Yup. It’s very very true!
Verónica sometimes can’t believe that this is real life.
