Far-left congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now demanding that the U.S. government establish abortion clinics on federal lands in red states in order to circumvent state level abortion bans.

As The Daily Wire reports:


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “workaround” for the Supreme Court’s ruling last week that states can restrict abortions is to terminate pregnancies on federal land — which presumably could mean abortion clinics in national parks.

The New York Democrat raised the bizarre prospect while railing against the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds to pay for abortion, except to save the life of the woman, or if the pregnancy arises from incest or rape.

“I will say, on a policy response, we should — we need to be working on repealing the Hyde Amendment in Congress right now,” Ocasio-Cortez pronounced. “I am proud to say that we have successfully started to take the steps to repeal the Hyde Amendment. … repealing the Hyde Amendment will allow the federal government to invest in access to reproductive care on — in any place that has federal jurisdiction, including places with federal jurisdiction in red states.”

“I have brought up, for example, the prospects of increasing abortion access on federal lands in red states,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. “There are workarounds around this. We can start exploring this now.”

Included in federal lands are national parks, battlefields and historic sites.

Does anybody reaaly give a rats ass about what she has to say?No end to joe biden BS and lies, were better off then most? WTF, inflation off the scales, no were not better off then most European countries who have lower inflation rates then us , most have less shortages then us, and most can do better dealing with shortages then us. Where the fxxx is the needed baby formula? Where are the self energy solutions? Let me guess time for another vacation at the beach, better check to see how Hunter is doing on the family retirement plan, the only surplus we have are illegal’s, and illegal imported drugs and big city crimes. Joe biden never took any fit to serve test and now it’s more oblivious then ever he is not dealing in any reality, biden lacks helm leadership skills.

Think you pretty well hit the nail on the head. What makes AOC think she has the power to DEMAND the government? We need to vote out all the garbage and trash and put in REAL Americans that does what is best for the American and not the illegals,

One has even been proposed for the Petrified Forest in Arizona. If you have ever been there, this is a BAD and INSANE move.
