Mike Barnicle and Stacey Abrams

( – During an interview on MSNBC this morning, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams outraged pro-life advocates and many other Americans when she expressed her view that for women abortion is an answer to the “economic realities of having a child.”

Abrams’s statement came in response to a question about inflation.

Mike Barnicle, a frequent panelist on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, asked Abrams:

“While abortion is an issue, it nowhere reaches the level of interest of voters in terms of the cost of gas, food, bread, milk, things like that. What can a governor — what could you do as governor to alleviate the concerns of Georgia voters about those livability, daily, hourly issues that they’re confronted with?”

Abrams responded:

“But let’s be clear. Having children is why you’re worried about your price for gas. It’s why you’re concerned about how much food costs. For women, this is not a reductive issue. You can’t divorce being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy from the economic realities of having a child. And so these are — it’s important for us to have both conversations. We don’t have the luxury of reducing it, or separating them out.”
