Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams seems to believe that more abortions will solve the economic issues in America. Worried about inflation or gas prices? According to Abrams, have an abortion, and you will be less worried.
Abrams made her claims on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after she was asked by Mike Barnicle, “I would assume, maybe incorrectly, but 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 that 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 — it’s important for us to have both and conversations. We don’t have the luxury of reducing it or separating them out. We also have to talk about what a governor can do. A governor can address housing prices. A governor can address the cost of education. A governor can put money into the pockets of everyday hard-working Georgians instead of giving tax cuts to the wealthy. That’s what I talk about on the trail, and that’s what’s resonating. But let’s not pretend that women, half of the population, especially those of child-bearing age, they understand that having a child is absolutely an economic issue. It is only politicians who see it as simply another cultural conversation. It is a real biological and economic imperative conversation that women need to have.”
