Abortion Access Is an Economic Justice Issue, and Democrats Should Remember That.

"This frequent perspective in the Democratic Party is one that concerns and agitates many progressive women, particularly progressive women of color. Access to reproductive health care, specifically abortion, is not a wedge issue. Rather, it is fundamentally important to economic justice for women."

We must stand up for Abortion rights...this is not a wedge issue but a civil rights issue.

4. I am really ticked off by the idea that abortion access is a wedge issue.

I get that in some states, we will have pro-life candidates...I put up with it in Ohio with Tim Ryan who has evolved on this issue thankfully. But I will not vote for a pro-life candidate in a primary ever. Womens rights are civil rights...make no mistake...we will not be thrown under the bus to get some mythical Trump voter's votes.

7. Bill Clinton said..

abortions should be safe, legal and rare.

When access to abortions is restricted, they happen anyway. The wealthy can afford to find a safe access to the procedure, but the less than wealthy must go to what we called "back-alley" abortionists. How is this fair?

I'll save my rant about the term "pro-life" for another thread.
