Georgia Democrat Gubernatorial candidate and far-left radical activist Stacey Abrams joined MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday morning show to discuss her economic policies and address the historical inflation issue in the country.
In the interview, Abrams, just like any other Democrat went on to blame the rising inflation and gas prices, not on any of Biden’s woke policies or the leadership of her own party, but on conservatives and libertarians who are “having children.”
“Right now we are walking away so often from the real issues that people care about. Abortion is an economic issue,” Abrams suggested. “It’s been reduced to this idea of a culture war. But for women in Georgia, this is very much a question of whether they’re going to end up in poverty in the next five years because women who are forced to carry unwanted pregnancies end up within poverty — they’re four times more likely to be impoverished in five years.”
Under the current Republican administration, the state of Georgia restricts abortions following a fetal heartbeat state. Some exceptions are allowed for extreme cases of rape or incest, or if the mother’s life is endangered by the complications caused by the pregnancy.
The desperate attempt to force and allow illegal abortion seems like the top priority for democrats like Abrams, who is completely disregarding issues like inflation, economic hardship and crime to further defend abortion rights.
Gas prices in the state of Georgia were last reported to be at an average of $3.24 per gallon. In 2020, under the leadership of President Trump, America became energy independent after a long time and the average had gotten down to just $1.61 per gallon.
MSNBC columnist Mike Barnicle asked Abrams about her plans to battle inflation and her policies to battle the economic hardships on her potential constituents if she wins the general election in November.
Abrams seemed furious by this question and snapped back at Barnicle with, “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.”
This discussion made rounds on Twitter with people on both sides criticizing Abrams’ radical comments, but instead of apologizing for the divisive views, she doubled down on her far-left comments writing, “— it matters if a woman controls how or if she has a family. It matters for gas prices, groceries, housing, the jobs you can get & the life you can plan. We know you know it’s true. That’s why lies are your only strategy. For the rest of, we’ll keep voting. #GOTV”
So, yes, GOP, it matters if a woman controls how or if she has a family. It matters for gas prices, groceries, housing, the jobs you can get & the life you can plan.
We know you know it’s true. That’s why lies are your only strategy. For the rest of, we’ll keep voting. #GOTV

Republican Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas joined in the well-deserved criticism and noted the irony of Abram’s argument writing, “Under Democratic leadership, you can’t afford children, but don’t worry, they will force your neighbor to pay for your abortion!”
Under Democratic leadership, you can't afford children, but don't worry, they will force your neighbor to pay for your abortion!
