Abortion isn’t the biggest concern for women in the upcoming midterm elections, says Melissa Red Pill – Brighteon.TV
10/31/2022 // Mary Villareal // Views

Despite the Democrats making a lot of noise about abortion, Melissa Red Pill said it is not the biggest concern of female voters heading to the midterm elections.

Red Pill made this assertion during the Oct. 26 episode of her Brighteon.TV program "Freedom Force Battalion." She mentioned that the Democratic Party has made abortion rights its central issue in the elections, especially in swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia.

Moreover, President Joe Biden promised to codify abortion rights the moment Democrats take Congress during the midterms.

"Here’s the promise I make to you and the American people. The first bill I will send to Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade. And when Congress passes it, I'll sign it in January [2023] – 50 years after Roe was first decided [as] the law of the land," he said during a Washington, D.C. event sponsored by the Democratic National Committee.

While freedom of choice and women's rights are issues of great importance for women under 35 years old, women over 50 – the largest and most consistent voter cohort – have different things in mind. The dramatic rise in living costs, the economy's direction and security are on the top of the heads of women over 50 years old heading to polling places this November.

Women aged 50 and up make up 27 percent of the total electorate. They also cast 30 percent of all the votes in the 2018 and 2020 elections.

Inflation a more pressing concern than abortion

According to a poll by the University of Pennsylvania that surveyed both men and women, 41 percent of participants consider inflation a more important issue. In contrast, only 15 percent of respondents think abortion rights is a pressing concern.


One woman from the over-50 cohort shared how inflation will play a role when Americans cast their ballots.

"I work from home and can't afford to retire because inflation has pushed prices so high. I'm paying twice as much as I used to for groceries. At least I don't have to spend money on gas working from home," said a 64-year-old Ohio woman at a focus group organized by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).

"Prices have gone up so much that I can't afford to be the kind of grandmother I'd like to be. I have an 18-month-old granddaughter and my son wanted me to say hello on a Zoom video call. But I had to work – I couldn't afford to lose the $20 pay for that hour. I hung up the phone and burst into tears."

AARP Chief Advocacy and Engagement Officer Nancy LeaMond said: "As the largest bloc of swing voters in this election, women over 50 can make a difference in 2022 and determine the balance of power in Congress and in states all over the country." A survey by the AARP found that 94 percent of women aged 50 and up plan to vote this year.

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, executive director of the mothers' advocacy group MomsRising, said this will be a congressional election like no other as American mothers are determined to vote.

"Women and mothers have registered to vote in record numbers, and we are doing a tremendous amount of work to get them involved," she said. "We're going to exercise our power at the polls this year."
