Kellyanne Conway Questions Why Abortion Rights Are ‘Women’s Issues’

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, questioned why abortion rights are considered “women’s issues” while discussing Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s comments on a failed abortion bill in his state. In the Fox News interview, Conway accused the mainstream media of being “pretty much pro-abortion,” saying outlets “all but ignored” Northam’s comments about the proposed legislation that would have reduced restrictions on late-term abortions. “They just don’t cover this... I’m sorry, I have to say this, why do they call it ‘women’s issues’ then? Why do we always have to hear that such-and-such politician is bad or good on quote ‘women’s issues?’ Don’t they really mean abortion?” Conway said. “Because I’ve been in politics for 30 years, and I’ve never not a single time heard the phrase ‘men’s issues,’ because people believe men voters can handle all the issues.” Conway also told White House reporters later Monday that Northam made an “unforgivable statement” regarding late-term abortion.
