Throughout a WI state Meeting debate this week over a invoice to block abortions from state health insurance plans, Republican state consultant Scott Allen put forth the argument that abortions ought to be stopped to right labor shortages out there.
The GOP lawmaker argued that whereas abortion is “flawed,” it’s completely acceptable to drive girls to procreate in order that corporations have extra staff, as NARAL Pro-Choice America identified in a tweet on Friday.
“Labor drive shortages are tied to inhabitants declines. And labor drive shortages are a limiting think about financial progress. And restricted financial progress poses an issue when authorities tries to pay for public companies and infrastructure,” Allen stated. “Despite this Mr. Speaker, sarcastically, the Democrats proceed their effort to assist the abortion business.”
Groans have been audible from a few of these current within the Meeting.
The Republican invoice Allen was addressing would allow state health insurance plans to cover abortions solely in instances of rape, incest, to protect a mom’s well being, or to save lots of her life, WIZM reported. That invoice handed the Meeting on Thursday.
Paradoxically, the state’s whole labor drive reached an all–time high in September, ThinkProgress reported, citing Gov. Scott Walker.
