Amy Klobuchar Had the Perfect Clapback to Jay Inslee’s Comments on Abortion

“I just want to say there’s three women up here.”

So-called “climate candidate”, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington, made a bold statement about his legislative history during Wednesday’s first Democratic debate on NBC, saying, “I am the only candidate here who has passed a law protecting a woman’s right of reproductive health, and health insurance.”

Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar had the perfect response.

“I just want to say there’s three women up here that have fought pretty hard for a woman’s right to choose,” Klobuchar said, with a nod to her fellow woman candidates Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
