Boebert’s 17-year-old son apparently doesn’t like birth control much either, as he is now expecting a baby with his girlfriend, whom Boebert has assured us is over the age of 14.


The Colorado congresswoman has also tried to attack contraception in other ways: The first bill she introduced in 2023 was a proposal to defund Planned Parenthood, which offers low-cost or no-cost birth control pills to uninsured and low-income people.
