The Democratic debate ignored abortion. That’s a loss for voters.
Reproductive rights are key for a lot of Democratic voters. They didn’t get a mention Thursday night.

Abortion rights are shaping up to be a key issue for Democratic voters going into 2020.
But you wouldn’t know it from the third Democratic debate on Thursday night.
The moderators didn’t ask a single question about abortion or reproductive health more generally, and candidates didn’t bring it up. At least one candidate complained about the absence: Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted Thursday night that the debate “was three hours long and not one question about abortion or reproductive rights.”
