Clinton didn't just go after Trump on abortion, she also called out Sanders for downplaying its importance

3. No. Or yes

You heard things, real things.

Income "equality" is not the gift from which all blessings flow. Juxtaposed with this issue, and considering our 78 cents on the dollar, the thing I'm hearing from him is All Paychecks Matter.

7. This may be why many women

have been hearing many of the same things that Black DUers are even when we are not specifically POC ourselves.

2. Maybe some PP, NARAL, or CodePink members can crash a Sanders event and get some answers? nt

4. It is a Huge Issue

and not just for protection from invasive physical aspects of denied Reproductive Rights. It also has massive economic implications that resonate through communities and disproportionately affect women and families with already low incomes. One of the surest predictors of childhood poverty and illness is having a single mother. That reality is one millions of the poor experience. The fact is that Republicans will do everything they can to keep women and children living in poverty and denying women the right to an abortion is a perfect way to do that. Allowing Trump to be elected and his impact on this issue would be devastating for millions of people.

Huge

5. It looks as if there are some

BBros Twitter followers who believe that Hillary is "running scared" when she makes comments like this.

I'm with her when she says this too:

And I know, given what's happening in states across this country, we need a president who is passionate about this, seeing it as a top priority because women's health is under assault across America.

10. She's right.

What Sanders and his defenders don't get is that of all the issues brought up on the campaign trail, reproductive rights is the area where a President will have the most influence. Barring a filibuster of a supreme court nominee, you don't need the a filibuster-proof Senate and the House to protect or destroy Reproductive Rights. You just need the Senate and a supreme court vacancy. Something that the next president has good chance at having.

13. Must be nice to not have to personally worry about abortion access

Or personally worry about police racial profiling

Or personally worry about anti-gay religious freedom laws.

Know what else might be nice? Worrying about it even if it does not personally effect you.

14. Women's reproductive health is a HUGE issue, not a "distraction"

Seriously? Bernie truly has only one set of talking points that matter to him. That's a shame. As others have already pointed out, single mothers are often at the bottom end of income inequality. They and their children suffer big time because they lacked access to contraception and abortion.

Here in Ohio, John Kasich (you know the Republican everyone says is so reasonable) just defunded PP. Ohio has one of the WORST infant mortality rates in the nation, so cutting PP funding makes all sorts of sense.
