Chelsea Clinton said that abortion is awesome because it’s got great benefits to the economy:
Whether you fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access rights, because these are not the same thing, if you care about social justice or economic justice, agency – you have to care about this.
It is not a disconnected fact – to address this t-shirt of 1973 – that American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy. Right?
The net, new entrance of women – that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973…
So, I think, whatever it is that people say they care about, I think that you can connect to this issue.
This is utilitarianism. Some shall suffer but it’s ok because it’s good for the economy which is for the greater good.
But I’m interested in a figure here. What’s the dollar figure that makes it worth it to kill unborn children? Let’s divide 3.5 trillion by 60 million aborted babies. And we’ve got legalized abortion is a net gain of $58,333 for each dead unborn child. So besides the fact that it’s total malarkey, what dollar figure would they comfortable with? 530,000? $10,000? $1,000? Less?
