Well, here’s a version of the leaked Roe v. Wade draft decision we hadn’t heard of previously. We had just thought about turning Roe v. Wade would hurt Planned Parenthood’s profits, but Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told Senator Bob Menendez on Tuesday that “limiting access to abortion” would have “very damaging effects” on the economy. Menendez also cited a study that suggests current state restrictions on abortion cost the United States about $ 105 billion annually. Maybe it’s not “Putin’s price hike” after all; it’s those heartbeat accounts to blame for our financial woes.

We used to be against abortion, but $ 105 billion? This could change our minds about Roe v. Veal.
Do you think you got a warning on that question?

Ending the lives of unborn children is good for the economy.
It is an interesting interpretation.

Why is the Secretary of the Treasury intervening on this? His statement is quite revealing: is it really the choice of women or population control?

population control. Obviously.

In fact, reducing the birth rate creates a smaller aging workforce. The smaller workforce reduces productivity and it would be more difficult to sustain social programs such as social security through taxation. It has been playing for over a decade now.

This (among countless other reasons) is why we can’t take what they say seriously.

If only there were ways to prevent pregnancy

Quite right? Isn’t that what Planned Parenthood is for? Parenting planning?
For God’s sake, what is this world that people live in where birth control doesn’t exist?

And here it is. It’s about the economy. Oh.

Listen Yellen and Menendez treat women as a collective economic benefit, rather than as individuals who possess feminine dignity.

Yellen has a very damaging effect on the economy and is driving women back decades.

I believe there is more to it than that. But let’s ask the one person who has done a terrible job of what the economy would set back.

So their position is to reduce the population through abortion but to open the southern border to increase the population. I vote that we give the unborn children the same life chances that we give to foreigners / migrants / immigrants.
– Les Reed (@NewageReed) May 10, 2022
huh? From the same people who want unlimited immigration of the poor, because we need the workforce.
– Ultra Friedrich von Steuben (@CanYouRewindIt) May 10, 2022
Continue to kill unborn children to keep women in the workforce. ghoul

We could end world hunger with that $ 105 billion, or so we have been led to believe.
