Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams shocked political observers by saying Wednesday that abortion is "an economic issue" - as surveys suggest more American voters are concerned about rising inflation than the overturn of Roe v. Wade.
"Having children is why you're worried about your price for gas ... [and] how much food costs," Abrams told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"For women, this is not a reproductive issue," she added. "You can't divorce being forced to carry out an unwanted pregnancy from the economic realities of having a child."
