Twitter Users Mock Lauren Boebert’s Bizarre Birth Control Claim

Boebert asked pharmacy owner Kevin Duane if it’s common for people to leave prescriptions over the counter because of cost concerns. He then offered what he said was his own experience:

“I left a prescription at a pharmacy once. I went to get birth control,” said Boebert. “And I was there at the counter and paid for it, and the price was very high. I said, ‘Wow, is this a three-, six-month prescription?’ ‘No ma’am, it’s been a month.’ And I said, ‘It’s cheaper to have a child,’ and I left it at that.”

She added that as a result of not buying contraception, she now has “my third son, Kaydon Boebert.”

“It turned out to be a very good thing,” Boebert said. “But I personally experienced that when times were tough.”

Boebert is considering introducing a bill earlier this year defund Planned Parenthoodthat provides access to health care and affordable birth control to women, Twitter users had their thoughts about her comments.

Taught by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) said Boebert’s Planned Parenthood proposal is designed to make things worse for other women who need access to birth control.

Others tried to bring facts to Boebert, while expressing sympathy for how his comments might affect his children.
