Pro-abortion firebrand and MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski joined New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) on Monday’s Morning Joe to discuss Hochul’s plans to subvert Republican pro-life legislation. During the segment, Brzezinski made the brain busting claim that not allowing women to get abortions will leave them dead or sterilized, followed by Hochul’s Freudian slip in which she called for utilizing military arsenals against those who oppose abortion.
Brzezinski dedicated the segment to Kathy Hochul’s legislation that would enable abortion providers in New York to send abortion pills to women in Republican states, effectively bypassing the laws enacted in those states in the wake of Roe v. Wade’s repeal by the United States Supreme Court. She, along with Hochul and activist Lauren Leader fearmongered about the necessity of abortion, and simultaneously threatened Republicans.
Brzezinski fumed: “And these governors who are imposing six-week bans, fifteen-week bans, they need to be voted out, because at this point, women are going to die or become sterilized because they can’t get the health care you need.”
Her claim that women will die from not having abortions was wildly untruthful, because many Republican states’ abortion restrictions had provisions for when the life of the mother was at stake, but more so because studies found that the reasons for abortion that include rape or incest (0.3%), risk to the woman’s life (0.2%), or other physical health concerns (2.5%) account for ”less than five percent of all abortions”.
These lies peddled by the left are part of a continuing effort to label abortion as “medical care” that saved lives, when the data shows a different reality, where abortion was overwhelmingly carried out because of monetary reasons, or for the purposes of eugenics – where the baby is killed because it has a health issue. Eugenics was heavily utilized by the Nazis as a way to eliminate races and other groups they deemed as “inferior”.
Brzezinski’s tantrum was then outdone by Kathy Hochul: “Again, this is a war we are in, and we have to use all the arsenal, all the mil – ary- all the assets we have to be able to win this on behalf of our women.”
Hochul appeared to be trying to use the imagery of war to rally support for her cause, a common occurrence in politics, but here she accidentally said what she was thinking: that military force should be used to enforce the left’s ideological demands. This was far from the first time the left has called for political violence against their enemies, but Hochul should take a lesson from Wagner and Yevgeny Prigozhin’s failed coup and make it her last time.
