Vice President Harris shamelessly defended abortion, stating that the right to end an unborn child’s life is “not negotiable” while discussing abortion and “reproductive health providers” on Thursday.
Harris met with providers from Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi, and New Mexico to discuss Texas Senate Bill 8, also known as the Texas Heartbeat Act, and other laws that limit abortions. Harris said:
The president and I are unequivocal in our support of Roe v. Wade, and the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade, and the right of women to make decisions for themselves with whomever they choose about their bodies. And needless to say, the right of women to make decisions about their bodies is not negotiable.
Harris stated the United States will be closer to what we “hold as ideal” when all individuals are treated equally, “including their access to essential services.” She further discussed how abortion is necessary to ensure “women’s full participation in our nation.”
“So for me, this is truly an issue that is about full participation. And in that way, we know that when all people are able to fully participate, our democracy is stronger, and everyone benefits,” she said.
Notably, Harris commented on government interference in personal health decisions on the same day President Biden mandated COVID vaccines for businesses with more than 100 employees.
“When people are able to make choices without government interference for themselves in terms of their well-being and the well-being of their family in consultation with whomever they may choose, we are a stronger society,” she continued.
Leftists activists and politicians have been in an uproar since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 not to block the new Texas law banning most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
President Biden’s Department of Justice filed a lawsuit over Texas’s “heartbeat” law, alleging it is “in open defiance of the Constitution.”
