Friday, in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Vice President Kamala Harris held a press conference:
Here’s what that decision means: For nearly 50 years, we have talked about what Roe v. Wade protects. Today, as of right now, as of this minute, we can only talk about what Roe v. Wade protected. Past tense,” she said. she declared.
“This is a healthcare crisis, because understand: Millions of women in America will go to bed tonight without access to the healthcare and reproductive care that they had this morning; without access to the same healthcare or reproductive healthcare that their mothers and grandmothers had for 50 years.
“This is the first time in the history of our nation that a constitutional right has been taken from the people of America. And what is that right? — some might ask. It’s the right to privacy,” as stated by the vice president.
“Think about it as the right for each person to make intimate decisions about heart and home; decisions about the right to start a family, including contraception, such as IUDs and the morning-after pill; decisions about whether to have a child, including, as Senator Durbin mentioned, through in-vitro fertilization; decisions to marry the person you love — Obergefell v. Hodges, Loving vs. Virginia.
“This opinion also says, when your read it, that abortion is not deeply rooted in our nation’s history. They offer that in the opinion as a foundation for the decision they rendered today,” she stated.
Even if Harris’ response was anticipated, the left did not applaud.
She did not mention that the baton has been transferred to the states and that state laws will determine the outcome of the matter.
However, her subsequent action prompted increased criticism from both conservatives and liberals.
More on this story via The Republican Brief:
She decided to tweet about the event, and Twitter responded in fore.
Harris didn’t waste any time setting up a staged shot of herself in the air, on a private jet, removed from society and using the resulting liberal protests at eh decision as self-promotion, Conservative Brief reported.
“I know there are women out there who are afraid. To those of you who feel alone and scared: I want you to know the President and I are fighting for you and your rights. We are in this fight together,” she said with a photo of herself watching the protests on CNN.
Not VP Kamala Harris watching the erosion of #RoeVsWade from her plane, at a distance. Whoever thought this was good photo-op needs to be fired immediately.
This is literally the embodiment of thoughts and prayers. https://t.co/AoPB0E18xU

Harris’ tweet was lame given that the decision is already made, and even liberals tweeted back in disgust. CONTINUE READING…
