Can Someone Remind Bernie Sanders That Abortion is an Economic Issue?


Can Someone Remind Bernie Sanders That Abortion is an Economic Issue?
The Portland Mercury (blog)

It happened during his 2016 campaign as well, when Sanders called Planned Parenthood part of "the establishment," a move that belied a disappointing lack of dedication to abortion rights and respect for reproductive rights advocacy. Abortion, turns out, is just not Sanders' issue, and when it shows, it's in embarrassing waysâlike casually campaigning for someone who's advocated to force women to undergo ultrasounds before having an abortion.What's particularly frustrating about all of this is that abortion is very much an economic issue. Sanders should care about it through that lens alone. It's an economic issue, because stigmatizing abortion and segmenting it away from other types of healthcare has had the effect of making it less accessible to low-income women.
