On Monday's episode of Morning Joe on MSNBC, commentator Lauren Leader told a roundtable of pundits that democracy cannot function if women aren't allowed to get abortions.

“Ultimately women's full and equal participation in society at every level, including bodily autonomy, is fundamental to democracy functioning,” Leader said, substituting the popular euphemism “bodily autonomy” for abortion.
