A California lawmaker claims women need abortion to control their family size because inflation and rising expenses have made it difficult for mothers to feed their families.

In a conversation with MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, Representative Katie Porter explained that she thinks the Supreme Court’s probable overturn of Roe v. Wade will have “long-term economic consequences.” She said:
