Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) explained on Tuesday that she stopped taking birth control because "it's cheaper to have a kid."

At a House Oversight hearing on drug prices, Boebert told a personal story about her access to contraception.

"I left a prescription at a pharmacy once," she recalled. "I went to get birth control, and I was there at the counter and went to pay for it, and the price was very, very high. I said, wow, is this a three six-month prescription? 'No, ma'am, this is one month.'"

"And I said, it's cheaper to have a kid," the lawmaker added. "And I left it there, and now I have my third son."
