Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) called out pro-abortion politicians Wednesday for promoting the lie that rape victims need to abort their babies.
Life News reports:
Boebert, a pro-life Republican, said women need guns to be able to defend themselves from sexual assault, not abortions, The Independent reports.
“‘Rape victims need abortion.’ Wrong. They need love. They need support. They need safety and healing. They needed a Glock 19 when it happened,” she told lawmakers on the U.S. House floor. “Rather than focusing on the baby, it’s time to focus on the [rapist].”
Speaking to Democrat Congressional leaders as they prepare to vote on a radical pro-abortion bill, Boebert refuted several lies about the killing of unborn babies in abortions, according to the report.
“The first lie is that abortion is beneficial to women,” she said, according to the Washington Newsday. “That’s some CNN fake news right there.”
“Every abortion results in the death of one person and the injury of another,” Boebert said.
