The full interview can be viewed below: Bush’s experience likely has little or nothing to do with racism and more to do with the business of abortion. In 2022, industry analysis website IBISWorld.com estimates the market size of the family planning and abortion clinics sector in the U.S. to be $3.7 billion. The market size of the abortion industry has grown faster than the rest of the economy, according to IBIS World. The report states: “The primary negative factor affecting this industry is per capita disposable income, while the primary positive factor is low competition. … Medicaid … is the largest source of public funding for family planning services. Therefore, the level of federal funding for Medicaid programs significantly affects the number of Americans that can afford industry services. Federal funding for Medicare and Medicaid is expected to increase in 2022, representing a potential opportunity for the industry.” (Emphasis added.) A more comprehensive analysis of this industry can be viewed here. Rather than personal concern for the feelings of the women whose pregnancies they terminate on a daily basis, abortion providers are interested in the revenue generated by their clinics. And this is supported by viewers’ reactions to Bush’s interview.
“I said, no, you know what, I’m not ready. And the nurse just wouldn’t listen to me.”@RepCori tells the “complicated” story of her second abortion, when her pleas to halt the procedure were ignored.“I felt like it was, ‘Oh well, we know better. You don’t know what you need.'” pic.twitter.com/sdJaQRxVWb — Firing Line with Margaret Hoover (@FiringLineShow) October 7, 2022
Some readers said they’d had similar experiences in abortion clinics.
They didn’t refuse to stop because of racism. They refused to stop because those abortion clinics are about making money, and they wouldn’t get the money if they stopped.It’s why pro-lifers talk about the “abortion industry,” because that’s what it’s about — making money. — Ryan Booth (@brteacher) October 7, 2022
This literally has nothing to do with racism: @cateici has described this, and it also happened to me.It happens to many women. Once you walk through those doors you are entirely at their mercy, and they are exceptionally merciless. — Sarah St. Onge ن ♀🦬 you probably won’t agree w/me (@She_Brings_Joy) October 7, 2022
And others were simply horrified by Bush’s experience.
Not a fan of Cori Bush, but this is horrifying and heartbreaking. How many others have had similar experiences? This is evil…— Enlightening Matters (@EnlightenMatter) October 7, 2022
Ghoulish.There are satanic forces behind the abortion industry. It’s a spiritual battle. https://t.co/ixlVXkDfRo — Cryptid Politics 🇺🇸 (@CryptidPolitics) October 7, 2022
Bush, who immediately aligned with the far-left “Squad” upon her arrival in Washington, D.C., is rabidly pro-choice. Clearly, it was not her intention to make the case against abortion when she agreed to the PBS interview. But her powerful testimony portrayed the abortion industry in the most callous way possible. Her comrades in the Squad have to be horrified. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Not uncommon – this is why some abortion businesses won’t allow women to bring anyone with them to the “procedure room” or bring their cell phones… very sad.— Elisa Martinez (@elisa1121) October 7, 2022
