Backlash After AOC Suggests Birth Control Should Be “Free and Over-The-Counter”

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently weighed in on the issue of birth control, which she suggested should be “over-the-counter.”

The controversial congresswoman also stated her belief that birth control “should be free, too,” drawing bipartisan scrutiny from social media commenters.

A variety of conservative and liberal commenters took to social media to state their disapproval of AOC’s remarks.

Many pointed out that Republicans initially attempted this during 2014, while others explained that birth control medication can be dangerous, if not prescribed by a professional.
