Speaking to Tucker Carlson on Fox News Thursday, conservative commentator and Hoover Institution fellow Victor Davis Hanson called out the left and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for advocating for radical feminism that communicates women should not have children.

“Do you find it interesting they are so offended by fertility and nature and the idea that people reproduce? And that’s OK. Men and women come together and we create new life. The whole thing is repulsive to them. Why is that?” Carlson asked.

“I think it’s because it started with the feminist movement that they felt that impaired a woman’s future,” Hanson said. “I think it also reflects a reality, Tucker, that the age when people are getting married and having children, buying a home, buying a house, has gone from mid-20s to mid-30s. Our crisis right now is we are not reproducing ourselves. We’re about 1.8 rather than 2.1 or 2 [birth rate].”

Hanson said he people like AOC are “suffering from prolonged adolescence.”

“These children have adult bodies but the minds of children. They don’t want to grow up. AOC is a good example of a person who’s suffering from prolonged adolescence. And she said she doesn’t want to have children because of climate change,” he said.

“So, it’s a phenomenon. I don’t know if it’s because of 1.7 trillion dollars in student debt or the economy, but they just don’t want to take off their training wheels and go experience life and its adventures and dangers,” he added.

The U.S. birth rate fell in 2020 to the lowest number of children born since 1979. Ocasio-Cortez has continually stoked reproduction alarmism, notably saying a few years ago, “There’s scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead young people to have a legitimate question: is it okay to still have children?”
