Rep. Jennifer McClellan emphasized the critical link between economic opportunity and reproductive freedom, stating that they are interconnected.

She highlighted the significance of reproductive freedom and democracy in the upcoming election, noting that these issues are connected and will be central to the Democratic campaign.

McClellan also acknowledged the importance of the economy in the election, emphasizing the need to protect reproductive freedom while campaigning on economic opportunities.

“[W]e’ve seen the leader of your party make abortion front and center. But when you look [at] Decision Desk HQ polling, what is the most important issue in deciding who to vote for in 2024? Economy, 40%, immigration, [17%], abortion, 8%. Is this going to be the centerpiece of the Democratic campaign?” Blake Burman asked.

“It’s going to be a major centerpiece of the Democratic campaign because reproductive freedom and democracy are both on the ballot and they are connected and the president made perfectly clear that both of those issues are on the ballot today, and that only one ticket, and that is Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, are fighting to protect our democracy and fighting to protect reproductive freedom. And just like in Virginia, Ohio, and Kansas, voters came out to protect reproductive freedom. They’re going to do so nationwide,” McClellan said.

“I hear you on the results, Congresswoman, and those are indisputable, no matter what you think about abortion, we have seen how it’s played in elections, but I think you would also agree — and you know the famous political line, it’s the economy, stupid. And so, I wonder if you think, at the end of the day, this is going to be an election, whoever crosses the finish line, about abortion or the economy?” Burman pressed.

“It’ll probably be a bit of both. But economic opportunity is [a] critically important aspect of reproductive freedom. They are connected as well. And I think it is important to understand that while we also campaign on the economy, we are campaigning on making sure that we protect reproductive freedom,” McClellan said.
