Stacey Abrams Points to Abortion As Her Suggested Fix for Rising Inflation Prices


Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams implied that abortion is needed to confront the rising cost of living as inflation soars when asked about her plan to help the struggling families of Georgia.

This week, Abrams was asked during an interview on MSBNC’s “Morning Joe” about how she might address the food and gas prices that voters might be more concerned about than abortion.

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

Abrams, who lost her first governor’s race in 2018 to now-incumbent Brian Kemp in a tight race she refused to concede. She has nonetheless become a darling of the Democratic establishment and her second bid for the governor’s mansion has centered distinctly around her emphatically pro-abortion platform in a state that recently severely restricted abortion following the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.

And so, as she replied, she considers abortion to be necessary to address rising costs for Georgian families.

“You can’t divorce being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy from the economic realities of having a child,” Abrams said, arguing that “we don’t have the luxury of reducing it, or separating them out.”

“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,” she also claimed, without mentioning any specific policy points that could otherwise help Georgia’s women.

“But let’s not pretend that women — half the population — especially of childbearing age, they understand that having a child is absolutely an economic issue. It’s only politicians that see it as just another cultural conversation,” she also declared.

Abrams’ pro-abortion platform has been highlighted by this website previously both when she misleadingly claimed that fetal heartbeats are “manufactured sounds” and also claimed, citing her childhood in the church as the daughter of two pastors, that the “unbiblical” to ban abortion.
