Rep. Porter: Inflation We’re Seeing Now Reinforces the Need for Abortion

‘It reinforces for people how big a responsibility it is to take care of a family’
By Grabien Staff


PORTER: "Well, I don't think they compare. I think they actually reinforce each other. So, the thought that things like inflation can happen and it can become more expensive to feed your kids and to fuel your car is exactly why people need to be able to be in charge of how many mouths they're going to have to feed. So I think the fact we're seeing this jump in expenses, that we're seeing people having to pay more at the grocery store, pay more at the pump, pay more for housing, is a reason that people are saying, 'I need to be able to make my own decisions about when and if to start a family.' So I don’t think we're going to see them — I don't think it’s about comparing them or contrasting them. I think they reinforce for people just how big of a responsibility it is to take care of a family."
