Abrams scorched for suggesting abortion alleviates inflation: ‘Positively ghoulish’
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abram appalled conservative Twitter users with her argument Abortion fights inflation By removing the burden on the children’s family finances.
Abrams made the conservative claim of “evil” and “positive gully” on Wednesday while speaking to MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle on Morning Joe.
Barnicle pressed Abrams on how he might ease voter concerns about inflation and higher gas prices. Abrams’ answer suggested that keeping abortion rights safe would help solve the problem of inflation.
She told Barnicle, “But let’s be clear. Having kids is why you’re worried about the price of gas, and that’s why you’re worried about How much does food cost?. For women, this is not a reductive issue. Divorce cannot force you to carry an unwanted pregnancy out of the economic realities of having a child.”
