Biden Press Secretary Janet Yellen is now claiming that a potential Supreme Court decision striking down Roe vs. Wade would somehow harm the U.S. economy.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen claimed on Tuesday that restricting abortion access to women in the U.S. would have damaging effects on the nation’s economy.

Yellen shared her perspective during testimony to the Senate Banking Committee regarding research related to abortion access and income levels.

“I believe that eliminating the rights of women to make decisions about women, whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades,” Yellen said, according to a Reuters report.
“What we’re talking about is whether or not women will have the ability to regulate their reproductive situation in ways that will enable them to plan lives that are fulfilling and satisfying for them,” the treasury secretary noted.

GOP Senator Tim Scott then openly blasted Yellen for insinuating ending the life of a child might somehow benefit the economy:
