(TheRedAlertNews.com) – 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.
You can watch the video clip of Abrams further down this post.
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?”
“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.”
