Chelsea Clinton’s claim that legalizing abortion boosted the U.S. economy isn’t just “very, very cold,” it’s “absolute idiocy,” Mark Levin said Wednesday on his nationally-syndicated radio show.
Levin was discussing a CNSNews.com report on recent comments made by the former First Daughter. On Saturday, Clinton claimed that the “Roe v. Wade” decision legalizing abortion helped add three and a half trillion to the U.S. economy:
"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."
“What she’s saying is abortion allowed women the freedom of being in the work force,” Levin responded, declaring Clinton’s claim cold-hearted “idiocy”:
“This is very cold - very, very cold. Abortion allowed women the freedom of working in the work force – or, as Andrew Cuomo might say, to be fully engaged.”
