Within minutes of stepping off the primary debate stage in Houston, 2020 Democrats were criticizing the lack of questions about abortion or reproductive rights.

“Three hours, not one question on abortion—with women’s rights under attack across our country,” tweeted former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) issued a similar rebuke:

Ten Democratic White House hopefuls took the stage Thursday night, with questions mostly revolving around subjects including health care coverage, gun violence, trade and foreign policy.

Reproductive rights were also missing from the Democrats’ second round of debates in July.
