AOC: The Free Market Treats ‘Puppies and Dogs’ Better than ‘People Who Give Birth’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.17.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left millions of Americans scratching their heads on social media this week; bizarrely comparing a person’s maternity leave with the amount of time puppies spend with their mothers.

“Do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given birth? Eight weeks,” asserted Ocasio-Cortez.

“So, the market has decided that women and people who give birth deserve less time with children than a dog. That, at its core, has showed that the market has failed to treat people with dignity,” she added.

Rep. Cortez is referring to certain laws that prevent puppies being removed from their mothers too early for their health and development. She fails to mention the dogs are then forcefully taken and sold.
