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.
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.
