Moderators didn’t ask a single question about abortion at last night’s debate. Sen. Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and Pete Buttigieg complained that the debate “was three hours long and not one question about abortion or reproductive rights.”

Since it didn’t come up in tonight’s #DemDebate, at this moment when women’s reproductive freedom is under attack, I wanted to say I trust women to make their own decisions about their health. It’s important we all keep taking about it.

Three hours, not one question on abortion—with women’s rights under attack across our country.

At tonight’s #DemDebate there was not *one* question on reproductive health care—despite the fact that the Trump admin has been relentless in its attacks on our nation’s program for affordable birth control. #ProtectX

Every Democrat currently running for the party’s presidential nomination agrees on nearly unlimited abortion at taxpayer expense, yet the abortion lobby is upset the issue didn’t get any mention during the latest primary debate this week.
“At tonight’s #DemDebate there was not *one* question on reproductive health care,” the Planned Parenthood Action Fund tweeted Thursday night, “despite the fact that the Trump admin has been relentless in its attacks on our nation’s program for affordable birth control.”
“So far, in the Democratic primary debates for the 2020 election cycle, abortion has barely been discussed,” Rachel Tardiff writes at the far-left Media Matters for America (MMFA). “In August, CNN moderators failed to ask 20 candidates a single question about abortion.” This, she says, is a problem because it lets “right-wing media and anti-choice outlets” continue to “dominate the conversation” during a period where abortion “access” is supposedly “percarious.”
Several of the candidates took the opportunity to signal that they shared Planned Parenthood and Media Matters’ outrage. More
Dear Democrats the candidates weren’t asked about abortion rights on Thursday night because all of America already know they all support the slaughter of innocent babies right up till birth at taxpayer expense.
Last night at the #DemDebate, no questions were asked about abortion.
64% of Democrats & 83% of Independents support significant abortion restrictions.
But virtually everyone on the debate stage supports abortion on demand until birth, with no restrictions.
