Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., announced that her 17-year-old son will be making her a "36-year-old grandmother" in April.
Boebert, who called to cut funding to schools that teach students comprehensive sex education at last week's CPAC, announced at a Moms for America event that her son Tyler and his girlfriend are expecting a baby boy.
Boebert during the announcement took at dig at LGBTQ Americans, saying that she and her husband are raising their four boys "to be men before liberals teach them to be women."
Boebert then revealed that "come April, I will be a Gigi to a brand new grandson."
"Now, any of you who have young children who are giving life, there's some questions that pop up. There's some fear that arises," Boebert said in a video posted by Patriot Takes.

Boebert said that when she approached her son and told him that he is making her a "36-year-old grandmother," he reminded her that she was a teen mother herself.
"He said, 'well didn't you make granny a 36-year-old granny,'" she said. "I said, 'yes I did.' He said, 'well then it's hereditary.'"
Boebert went on to claim that there is "something special about rural conservative communities."
"They value life," she said. "If you look at teen pregnancy rates throughout the nation, well, they're the same, [in] rural and urban areas. However, abortion rates are higher in urban areas. Teen moms' rates are higher in rural conservative areas, because they understand the preciousness of a life that it's about to be born."

A 2019 study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that teen pregnancies in rural areas tend to be unintended and may be higher because teens may be vulnerable to "local conditions that limit unintended pregnancy management options."
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that only about 50% of teen mothers receive a high school diploma by 22, compared to 90% of women who do not give birth during high school. "The children of teenage mothers are more likely to have lower school achievement and to drop out of high school, have more health problems, be incarcerated at some time during adolescence, give birth as a teenager, and face unemployment as a young adult," according to the CDC.
The CDC recommends providing teens with sexual education and other resources to prevent teen pregnancies.
Boebert at CPAC called to cut funding to schools that provide comprehensive sex education because there are schools "that are teaching worse than just gender ideology."
"They have comprehensive sex ed. They're teaching kids how to have and enjoy sex, and even same-sex sex, how to pleasure themselves," she said. "This is not something elementary students should learn, nor any student in a public school...These are the things that we need to go after and cut their funding."

Blowbert said that parents should teach their children about sex. She said she taught her son "Where babies come from just like my momma taught me."
I have no words for the stupid that just keeps spewing from her mouth
where the hell is Dev? He should be all over this
Boebert... announced... that her son Tyler and his girlfriend are expecting a baby boy.
Did she, and/or her husband give the kid the no sex before marriage talk?
The MAGA Populist Platform for the next generation of voters:
Cut funding for comprehensive sex education
Cut education programs that tackle diversity and equality
Divert money from public education to private education that doesn't have oversite
Roll back child labor laws
Cut healthcare funding and ignore the inequality in rural healthcare needs
Raise age of retirement
So, back to the days of early American robber barons.
Sounds like the white trash Palins
Wasn't this dumb bitch knocked up at 16?
The word around the trailer park is that wasn't her first pregnancy.
