WATCH: Kellyanne Conway Says: ‘I Gave Birth Four Times. I Didn’t Want Uncle Sam and Big Brother in There with Me’

Kellyanne Conway, a top advisor to President Donald Trump, appeared on Fox News to rail against Senator and 2020 Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (D-VT) for his recently unveiled Medicare for All plan.

Conway painted the plan as an instance of government intrusion on Americans’ healthcare that would drastically limit their medical options.

Watch below:

In painting the fearsome picture of healthcare for all Americans, she used childbirth as an example. Conway, who has four children, said:

“This is a government takeover…I gave birth four times. I didn’t want Uncle Sam and big brother in there with me…Government is coming to take over one of the most intimate parts of your life: your healthcare.”

However, in arguing against Medicare for All, Conway undercut one of the biggest talking points of anti-abortion Republicans: that the government should be able to limit women’s reproductive rights.

People were quick to point this out.

This comes less than a day after chilling anti-abortion legislation was introduced in Texas.
