We don’t know who this guy is, but he has a blue check next to his name and we’ll bet a Haidmaid’s costume in his closet. Catholic socialist Ian Samuel took Planned Parenthood’s “abortion is health care” tweet to the next level by suggesting that most abortions in the United States should be considered forced because of capitalism.
Bottom line: abortion is health care.

Most abortions in the United States should properly be considered forced abortions (capitalism puts working women to coerced choices; “get an abortion & get back to work, or starve to death along with your children”) https://t.co/6uHe2RUhtM

Capitalism doesn’t give women too many choices, huh; either get an abortion and get back to work or have the baby and starve along with it. We’d thought there were programs like WIC to make sure mothers and their children didn’t starve, but apparently capitalism destroys all.
I've never understood how many leftists can act like abortion happens with no context, as if it's not a sign of something sick in society.

This is, of course, nonsense on stilts.

Not only is this utterly wrong, it’s potentially scandalous.

Capitalism? How about the deadbeat dad? It’s long past time for men to assume financial responsibility for their children, across the board. Abortion hurts women, and benefits men (at times). It should be banned.

If that's the case, everything we do is forced by capitalism

Imagine the freedom we’ll all enjoy under socialism.
This line of reasoning seems to be leading toward “abortion is understandable until (some bright line of social safety net is achieved),” which I don’t think is what either side actually wants?

So if President Warren gives us all free childcare with her wealth tax, there’ll be no more abortions, right?
Is this a real account or is it a parody account?

Not only is your ethical reasoning terrible, but if this were true, countries with ‘better public healthcare’ and ‘better assistance’ would have lower abortion rates; that is not the case.

Abortion is higher in socialist and social-democrat states, dummy.

There are only two countries in the world that have a system of actual forced abortion, China and North Korea. Both of these countries are avowedly communist.
The internet just got stupider as a result of your tweet.

What is the starving-to-death-because-chose-life rate in the US?
Or, even, the starving-to-death rate in the US?
I'll patiently wait for your supporting data from reputable sources.

“get an abortion & get back to work, or starve to death along with your children”
There are literally zero abortions in the USA to which this dichotomy applies.
— Bo Sumi (@sumilosophy) November 24, 2019
You honestly believe the majority of the 600,000+ abortions in the US each year is a choice between murder and starvation? How many people do you think actually starve to death in the US?

If federal, state, and local governments didn’t take ~50% of our income on the form of taxes, a family wouldn’t need both parents to be gainfully employed.

I want to understand your tweet better. Are you saying businesses are telling women they can’t be a mothers and have a successful career or that is what you believe? Do you think women are capable of doing both?
— ?Chorky Spice? The Prolifer? (@TUnicornelius) November 25, 2019
Wow. You’re really sexist and clearly don’t think much of women. What low expectations you have. Pathetic.

Horrible opinion that’s objectively false.

What a ridulous steaming pile of crap comment. First of all there are dozens of social programs including welfare and and food stamps. There are millions of people willing to adopt unwanted babies. Just complete and utter BS.
— Irregardless spoons 18 (@TedFL34) November 25, 2019
Our institutions deceive vulnerable mothers to dehumanize the human beings in their care, advocate and facilitate abortion as the best solution for tough situations and make millions of dollars doing it.
Is there any more institutionalized and widely accepted atrocity in the US?
