Lauren Boebert calls for putting human fetuses on endangered species list

During a House hearing Thursday on endangered species this Thursday, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert suggested that human fetuses should be added to the list.

Boebert, who is staunchly anti-abortion, has sponsored or co-sponsored multiple abortion-related bills since December.

“I do want to say before my opening remarks, you know, since we’re talking about the Endangered Species Act, I’m just wondering if my colleagues on the other side would put babies on the endangered species list,” Boebert said, proceeding to flash multiple photos of unspecified fetuses. “These babies were born in Washington, D.C., full term. I don’t know, maybe that’s a way we can save some children here in the United States.”

She went to claim that the Endangered Species Act as has been “weaponized by extremist environmentalists to obstruct commonsense multiple-use activities that they disagree with.”
