Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, a Republican, said something that caused some to wonder aloud on Wednesday: “I first started having children after balking at the price of birth control at a local pharmacy.”
Boebert joked as she began telling the “fun little story” during a House Oversight Committee hearing on prescription pharmaceuticals on Wednesday, “My staff is probably gonna talk to me about this later.”
Boebert questioned Jacksonville, Florida, drugstore owner and witnessed Kevin Duane about seeing customers abandon their prescription medications there because they couldn’t afford them before revealing that she had already done so.
“I left a prescription at a pharmacy once — I went to get birth control,” remarked Boebert.“I was there at the counter, and went to pay for it, and the price was very, very high.” The Recount said by tweeting on Twitter:

Boebert said she initially assumed the payment would have been for a prescription good for three to six months but was later told it was only good for one month.
Boebert remembered, “And I said, ‘it’s cheaper to have a kid,'””And I left it there, and now I have my third son, Kaydon Boebert.” “It turned out to be a really great thing,” Boebert continued.
Boebert dropped out of high school after having her first child in 2004 and recently filed for divorce from her husband of 20 years. Later, the Colorado representative made local headlines when she gave birth to Kaydon, her third child, in a pick-up truck.
